HR consulting firm sets up shop downtown, plans to hire 200

A California human resources consulting firm has signed a lease for 30,000 square feet of Bank of America Plaza office space, writes Tennessean reporter Getahn Ward, and plans to hire 200 people between now and the end of the year. DayNine, which was launched in 2009, runs seven other U.S. offices — including one in Atlanta — as well as in London and Sydney.

DayNine is working with city and state officials on an incentive package tied to its expansion here, Ramos said. The company also looks to work with area colleges and universities and is already talking to other companies about attracting and recruiting more young professionals to Nashville.

A look at the architect for GBT's proposed $100M Brentwood project

Brentwood-based GBT Realty Corp., has jumpstarted its efforts for what is now called Crestview at The Summit, which could carry a price tag of up to $100 million and include office, hotel and restaurant space.

The develpment would be located on a 19-acre Davidson County site at the southeast corner of the point that Interstate 65 and Old Hickory Boulevard intersect in Brentwood. (Read more here.)

GBT, which has long eyed the site for development, has enlisted Goodwyn Mills & Cawood for architectural duties. With multiple offices and its headquarters in Alabama, the firm has a Nashville presence on West End Avenue. In late 2012, GMC merged with Nashville-based architecture firm CFP Group.

To date, Goodwyn Mills & Cawood has had a modest impact on Music City. However, last August the architecture firm was awarded a share of a $10 million federal contract by the National Guard Bureau in Nashville for architect and engineering services for the Tennessee Air National Guard and the Tennessee Army National Guard. GM&C is teaming with Smith Seckman & Reid (among others) on the project.

Check the firm’s work here.

The project is expected to include 480,000 square feet of Class A office space, restaurant space and a hotel, with a 2018 completion targeted. Colliers International is marketing the project.

GBT has created its Diversified Development Division for the effort. The division focuses on urban mixed-use and lifestyle centers, medical office buildings, urban infill residential projects and corporate campuses.
