On the heels of the Encore retail spaces having sold earlier this week for $11.5 million (read here), the owners of Daily Juice Cafe have landed a permit to build out their 850-square-foot space in the SoBro-based tower.
MTLC Building Group will handle the job, with the permit valued at $140,000.
Based in Austin, Daily Juice Café is a franchisor that bills itself as the only concept in its segment that offers “100 percent real foods, vegan and gluten-free” via its organic juices and smoothies.
Daily Juice, which will occupy the space located to the left of the Encore garage entrance (read more here), is the second Middle Tennessee location for business partners Robbie Nowinski and Josh Akright, who also own the Daily Juice at Seven Springs in Brentwood.
SoBro-based mixed-used tower Encore is slated to soon land three retail businesses in its ground-level commercial space.
According to a source who asked to go unnamed and with information about the businesses — a café/dessert shop to offer wine at night, a chain sandwich shop and a juice bar — the three respective leases are either signed or soon will be.
The source declined to identify the businesses.
Austin Benedict, a broker with the Nashville office of Colliers International, is handling the marketing and leasing efforts for the Encore retail spaces. He could not be reached for comment.
According to the source, the space in which the juice bar (the owner of which has another area location) will operate will be divided to create an additional white box space to be targeted to a non-eatery business.
The 21-story Encore, which also offers 333 condominium units, is located at the southwest corner of Third Avenue south and Demonbreun Street. Current commercial tenants include Bakersfield, Ensemble, Etch and The Farm House.
