Developer Tony Giarratana and Paul Shaw, a vice president at Dallas-based architectural firm RTKL, will give a presentation Friday to an International Council of Shopping Centers conference here in Nashville.
The session is titled “May Town Center – A Sustainable Urbanity.”
There’s no doubt that some eyes will roll among the opponents on Bells Bend.
Even though a large shopping component isn’t slated to be part of the development, the ICSC folks apparently want to know more about its “smart growth” aspects.
Whether or not the proposed development is smart growth is a key question.
Metro Legal has leased 18,800 square feet of space in the Washington Square Building on Second Avenue North. DWC Construction is fixing up space on the sixth floor for the Metro lawyers.
Metro Council approved the lease last month. That deal also included an extension on the 40,222 square feet the Davidson County District Attorney has had in the building since 1993.
The base rent for the entire space will be $876,476 for the first three years and then rise each following year.
Mobile home village sold
Chad M. Ray, an investor and manager of apartment properties based in Goodlettsville, has bought the Holiday Mobile Village at 201 Grizzard Ave. near Trinity Lane and Dickerson Pike.
Ray paid $6 million for the 32.4-acre property. He borrowed $5.1 million through Volunteer State Bank. He also has a $1 million note through Terry Hallemann’s Bridge Funding Corp.
