XMi Commercial Real Estate is planning to demolish the West End Avenue building last home to a Church’s Chicken fast food eatery.
Nashville-based XMi, which owns multiple Midtown properties, is attempting to sell the site, which sits at the northwest corner of 19th Avenue North and West End, for redevelopment.
Of note, Renasant Corp. plans to redevelop its site on the northeast corner of the intersection. Read more about that project here. And ground is about to be broken on a mixed-use project one-half block east on West End.
XMi Commercial Real Estate has added Laura Somerville as director of marketing and social media.
Somerville will work to expand the downtown-based company’s client engagement and visibility.
“[Somerville] brings energy, focus, creativity and exciting new ideas to our marketing and social media efforts,” Stan Snipes, XMi Commercial Real Estate president and principal broker, said in a release.
Before joining XMi, Somerville was an account assistant at DVL Public Relations & Advertising, where she worked with clients such as Jack Daniel’s and Johnston & Murphy to monitor media coverage and assist with event management for the annual Jack Daniel’s World Championship Invitational Barbecue and the USO “Toast to the Troops” programs.
Somerville, who sits on the boards of the Special Olympics of Tennessee and the Nashville Junior Chamber, was recently honored as one of Nashville's 2012 Top Thirty under 30 by the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
