East Nashville building prepped for possible retail business

An East Nashville building that has accommodated numerous tenants since the fast-changing area's post-2000 renaissance began has landed a retail store that is seemingly fashion related, according to a Metro Codes Department document.

M&S Associates acquired the property, located at 918 Main St. (see here courtesy of Google Maps), in December 2014.

South Nashville-based MTLC Inc. is handling the rehabbing of the building’s 2,000 square feet to house the retail shop, with the permit valued at $106,000.

The owners of the building’s future business could not be reached for comment.
