Tractor Supply sponsoring Harlinsdale Farm equestrian venue

Tractor Supply executives have signed a five-year agreement to put the retailer's name on the new equestrian arena being built at Franklin's Harlinsdale Farm. The venue will open its doors in September and plans to host competitions and arena polo matches as well as various forms of riding lessons.

Working with the City's Parks department, Friends of Franklin Parks broke ground in February on the arena project, and has raised nearly all of the funds necessary to cover the cost of the five-acre facility that includes the arena, a concession stand, public restrooms and the restoration of a 24-stall barn adjacent to the arena site.

Landmark Community Bank taps Coleman as VP

Bill Coleman has joined the downtown Franklin office of Landmark Community Bank as vice president of cash management services.

Coleman, who most recently served as a vice president at First Vision Bank in Murfreesboro, will oversee Landmark Community Bank efforts involving positive pay, account reconciliation, ACH and wire services, remote deposit capture and online banking, according to a release.

Coleman started his banking career with Banker’s Trust in Nashville and later worked with Tennessee Commerce Bank and Republic Bank in Franklin.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Middle Tennessee State University.

“Landmark’s approach to commercial banking is unique, and my job is to do whatever it takes to help our clients be successful,” Coleman said in the release. “This is a true community bank, where we understand the customer’s objectives and offer a solution to fit those needs, not the other way around. That kind of relationship banking, along with the competitive rates and options, made this role very attractive.”

Landmark Community Bank is based in Collierville, Tennessee.

Franklin Financial lease another sign of property market's health

So it turns out the glitzy parts of Nashville — downtown, West End, The Gulch and the like — aren't the only area office submarkets where space now costs more than $30 per square foot.

The leaders of Franklin Financial Network last week signed 15-year lease papers for almost 17,000 square feet that's been built onto their downtown Franklin headquarters by a company controlled by bank directors Henry Brockman and David Kemp.

Franklin Financial's starting rent is $33.25, which is $4.50 more than Spectrum Emery Properties is asking for its big and shiny One Franklin Park building located a few miles northeast. Even taking into account the "friendly" nature of the deal — which includes a clause allowing that rental rate to rise between 1.5 percent and 3.5 percent annually — the lease tells us the Nashville-area property market is in fine fettle, to say the least.

Check out the deal's details here.
