After almost two years in 12South, Rachel and Edward Martin are relocating (n)habit, their green-focused home supply and design business, to a larger space at 427 Chestnut St. near Greer Stadium. The current store will close its doors this Friday and the Martins will raise the curtain on their new spot — which is 1,800 square feet versus the 1,100 in 12South — on Monday the 18th. Around the corner from the Sounds and Gabby's Burgers, (n)habit will have greater loading dock access and space for the Martins' design and contracting work.
Metro officials are looking to buy property near 12South and Edgehill to create a new police precinct — called Midtown Hills — that would cover nearby Belmont, Lipscomb and Vanderbilt universities.
The new precinct would give Metro eight in total. Joey Garrison has the story for The City Paper.
Miranda Pontes, half of the couple behind Burger Up in 12South, has partnered with architect Nick Dryden of DA|AD to open LB's Market House nearby. Miranda Pontes and husband Mike, who also run The Frothy Monkey, bought the former Greenlight Deli last fall.
No plans have been announced about exactly when Greenlight will swing open the barn doors again or if there will be any major changes to the operation, but considering the Pontes' dedication to high quality local ingredients in their other two establishments, it sounds like a good fit.
