Shared office space provider BusinesSuites on Tuesday opened its new Brentwood location in the Seven Springs development. The Texas-based entity expanded its Nashville presence in the spring of last year when it acquired two Boardroom Business Centers locations in Green Hills and Maryland Farms. BusinesSuites has since relocated those sites and also runs a West End office.
The Metropolitan Development and Housing Agency Design Review Committee today unanimously approved plans related to a restaurant project targeted for North Capitol near Germantown.
Ronnie Wenzler, DTZ senior manager, and Tom Gibson and Allen Arender, both of Holladay Properties, own the site, on which an American foursquare former home recently was razed. Local restaurateur Miranda Whitcomb Pontes is targeting the Geist building for a new concept (read more here).
The property sits within MDHA's Phillips Jackson redevelopment district and, as such, needs committee approval of both general plan and exterior form and function. It is located within a half block of First Tennessee Park.
Arender, Gibson and Wenzler have tapped Berry Hill-based D|AAD to reinvent the building (sometimes called The Forge given it was used for blacksmithing) with a new structure to its west and an outdoor space to its east. Nick Dryden, D|AAD founder, will oversee that effort.
Relatedly, the committee unanimously approved the concept plan related to Buckingham Cos.’ proposed apartment skyscraper targeted for The Gulch (read more here).
The local office of CBRE has begun leasing efforts related to the 10,150 square feet of street-level retail space to be included in the 25-story SkyHouse Nashville, now under construction in Midtown.
Austin Benedict will handle the marketing and leasing for the retail space, according to a release.
The largest space, to span 3,000 square feet, will be located at the southeast corner of Broadway and 17th and includes 28-foot ceilings and a patio, intended for a restaurant user. The other spaces range from 1,000 to 2,800 square feet, with CBRE to target fast-casual restaurants, boutique shops or amenities stores for the residents of the building's 325 apartment units.
Of note, all retailers and retail patrons will have access to the building's 497-space parking deck.
Atlanta-based Novare Group and Simpson Housing are co-developing SkyHouse, which will have an address of 1701 17th Ave. S. This is Novare's third building in Nashville (joining Viridian and Encore) and its 15th SkyHouse.
“Novare Group and Simpson Housing have a long track record of delivering fabulous developments, and I look forward to seeing the success of other SkyHouse projects brought to Midtown Nashville," Benedict said in the release. "The project’s retail and abundant parking will fill a serious void in Midtown.”
