David Osborn, general manager of the proposed Nashville Medical Trade Center, tells News 2's John Dwyer he has signed or is close to signing leases that would account for 40 percent of the space at his ambitious project. Work on the NMTC, he says, will start once commitments reach 60 percent. The rehab of the Nashville Convention Center now is scheduled to open in early 2014, a year later than originally planned.
The Nashville Medical Trade Center folks are attending the NeoCon trade show, and apparently things are going well. The med mart's folks tweeted yesterday that, following last week's tenant announcement, they're "receiving great interest" and have met with "20+ companies; many want proposals."
