Pinnacle National Bank last week relocated the staff of its former Richard Jones Road office to other area branches. The largest bank headquartered in Nashville, which also runs an office on nearby Crestmoor, decided not to renew a lease it took on when it acquired Mid-America Bancshares in late 2007. Office Manager Mickey Keith has relocated to Pinnacle’s West End office, while the Crestmoor office will get some interior renovations this spring that will expand its client service area, workspaces and conference room.

Former professional cyclist Todd Nordmeyer (pictured here) has opened Endeavor Performance, a high-tech training facility, on Hayes Street. The indoor center uses simulation technology to let riders train in groups on their own bikes.
The series' formats are designed to improve athletic performance by varying the training stresses, using wattage, heart rate and cadence to accurately gauge individual effort. Nordmeyer tailors each series to work on specific cycling abilities and skills, and regular performance testing gauges and evaluates improvement.

Analyst David Fick at Stifel Nicolaus says that retail real estate investment trusts, having weathered the worst of the financial storm, now have the ability to boost their cash payouts big time. Chattanooga's CBL & Associates, which runs four malls in the Nashville area, could triple its dividend this year, he says.
I don't think that's really recognized in the market. The last two years were characterized by what we call "the wall of shame." We sold the market the idea that REIT dividends were safe and stable in the long term, and it turned out that when stressed, that really that was not true.

In reporting its fourth-quarter results, CBL & Associates — which owns the CoolSprings Galleria, RiverGate Mall and Hickory Hollow Mall — says the last of those three will generate a lot less cash going forward, which requires an adjustment of its book value. The 1.1 million-square-foot center's new "appropriate" value for Chattanooga-based CBL: $12.6 million, down from more than $107 million. The small piece of good news:
Currently Hickory Hollow Mall generates insufficient NOI to cover debt service on its $33.4 million recourse loan. CBL plans to continue to service the loan, which is self-liquidating, over the remaining eight year term.SEE ALSO: Shopping shuffle from one our recent print editions
