Nashville Rescue Mission has started renovations on its entrance and parking lot with the help and support of several area businesses.

In partnership with Southeast Venture, LLC.; H.G. Hill Realty Company; Hodgson & Douglas Landscape Architects; Barge Cauthen & Associates; Division 2 Constructors and Artisan Landscaping; Nashville Rescue Mission is undergoing a beautification project that will take approximately six weeks to complete and will include the addition of eco-friendly bioretention cells (also called a rain garden), raised planters filled with seasonal foliage, more than 50 new trees, an outdoor recreational area, increased parking and a redesigned, improved entrance into the parking lot, as well as into the building.

“Nashville Rescue Mission is a place of restoration and a place to reclaim beauty,” said Glenn Cranfield, president and CEO of Nashville Rescue Mission. “We want our entrance and parking lot to reflect that. With the addition of the Music City Center and the development of the SoBro area, the landscape of Nashville is changing and we want to change with it. We want to be good neighbors.”

“Nashville Rescue Mission provides a valuable service to Nashville through helping those who are hungry, homeless and in need,” Nashville Mayor Karl Dean said. “They are able to do this work through the generosity of individuals, businesses, foundations and churches—not government funds. These improvements will not only add beauty to our great city, but they will also enhance how the Mission serves its guests. It’s a wonderful demonstration of the Mission’s commitment to being good corporate citizens in our city.”

“We are honored to be a part of this project,” said Axson West, principal at Southeast Venture, LLC. “It’s amazing to see what a community can do when everyone works together toward a common goal. Nashville Rescue Mission is doing an incredible job of helping people in need. Soon, everyone who pulls into the parking lot or walks into the building will be greeted with a warm, inviting message of hope and not an asphalt jungle.”

NRM2.jpg“It’s a privilege to serve in partnership with this project team in service to Nashville Rescue Mission,” said Bo Adams, senior project manager at H.G. Hill Realty Company. “The programs and services the Mission offers to our community are critical, and we are thrilled to be able to contribute in this manner.”

“I can’t wait to see what a difference the new entrance and parking lot will make,” said John, a graduate of the Mission’s Life Recovery Program and current resident of the Mission’s Transitional House. “I know what it’s like to walk up to the Mission for the first time. I was scared, nervous and apprehensive. A warm, welcoming entrance will go a long way in making someone who is new to the Mission feel good about coming here for help.”

Nashville Rescue Mission plans to host an open house once the project is complete.

12South Flats Move-In Day

It’s here. The day we’ve all been waiting for. Move-in starts today for the new residents of 12South Flats. By the end of this holiday weekend, we expect the residential portion of the new mixed-use development to be 40% occupied.

When we broke ground on this project in May 2012, we had every hope that the construction would go as smoothly as it has.

We need to thank our partner in 12South Flats, H.G. Hill Realty Company. We also need to thank Southland Constructors, Barge Cauthen & Associates, Smith Seckman Reid, Hawkins Partners and RPM Transportation Consultants, among many others.

Welcome new 12South Flats residents to the neighborhood!  Screen Shot 2013-08-30 at 2.38.38 PM

Construction Commences on New MetroCenter Lexus of Nashville

The new location on MetroCenter Boulevard capitalizes on its proximity to MetroCenter’s major new interchange

Construction started last week on the new Lexus of Nashville MetroCenter location at the corner of Interstate 65 and Rosa Parks Boulevard. Once complete, it will serve as the new headquarters for Lexus of Nashville, replacing the original store in Madison, Tenn.

The 58,000-square-foot planned retail and service center is set on a 7.2-acre parcel. It will offer 61,540 square feet of outdoor display area, an 11,640-square-foot enclosed sales area and 42 service bays. The dealership will include a full line of new and pre-owned car sales as well as a Lexus service center and parts sales.

“Lexus bought this property about four years ago, and their development plans play perfectly into the major new interchange in the immediate MetroCenter area,” said Todd Alexander, principal for Southeast Venture, which represented the property owner. “It’s a great location. You’ll be able to see the dealership from the interstate, and MetroCenter’s proximity to downtown and interstates 65 and 40 will give potential buyers easy access into the new dealership.”

Broker Jimmy Pickel and Alexander and brokered the original deal.

“This is the first time that Lexus will have a retail and service center in Nashville’s center, and we’re very excited to bring Lexus sales inside Nashville’s urban core,” said J.R. Roper, general manager of Lexus of Nashville. “The finished dealership will provide 80 potential jobs to the area.”

TPC Management Company is managing the project. Atlanta-based Zenner Group will carry out architectural and interior design details. Barge Cauthen & Associates is serving as engineer and J.E. Crain and Sons is carrying out construction.

HealthSpring Campus Named Office Development of the Year

The Nashville chapter NAIOP has named our HealthSpring MetroCenter office campus the 2012 Office Development of the Year. Additionally, Southeast Venture Principal Michael Finucane won the Industrial Lease of the Year for brokering Griffin Technology’s lease of a new distribution facility in Interchange City. Both awards will be presented at NAIOP’s annual gala Feb. 23 at the Franklin Cool Springs Marriott.

In June 2011, HealthSpring executed a lease with us for Phase II of its MetroCenter office campus at 530 Great Circle Road. When complete, the campus will house employees from two of the three buildings HealthSpring currently occupies in MetroCenter.

We broke ground on Phase I of development in November 2010. Phases I and II of the project total 175,000-square-feet of office space and 997 parking spaces. The development sits on 21.10 acres overlooking Amulet Lake.

Southeast Venture’s in-house architecture and interior design group provided the design for the project and the firm’s property management arm will handle all day-to-day aspects of the property’s long-term operation and maintenance.

Our partnership with HealthSpring has been a truly valuable for us and for MetroCenter – a partnership that we hope to continue for a long time. It’s been an exciting project to spearhead and see through completion. Phase I of construction has finished and employees have moved in. Phase II is scheduled to wrap up in May.

Integral partners in the HealthSpring development included T.W. Frierson Contractor, Inc., Harvest Construction Company, Hodgson & Douglas, LLC and Barge Cauthen & Associates.

With the Industrial Lease of the Year award, NAOIP recognized Michael’s role in the leasing of 518,400-square-feet at 1706 Heil Quaker Blvd. by Griffin Technology. The site in Interchange City serves as a distribution facility for the firm.

Michael joined Southeast Venture in 1997 from the Trammell Crow Company, where he managed their Nashville industrial portfolio. At Southeast Venture, he concentrates primarily in brokering office and industrial transactions.

In addition to Griffin Technology, Michael has represented such clients as H.G Hill Realty, Duke Realty, Digital Reasoning, Espaces, Essex Technology Group, Spectra Metal, Thompson Caterpillar, Kemberton Healthcare and Cumberland Consulting Group.

In 2011, Southeast Venture completed over 758,000-square-feet of industrial leasing, making it  one of our best years on record in the industrial sector. These transactions represented new leases in the LaVergne market and helped absorb a lot of vacancy. We were fortunate to have the opportunity to work with some expanding clients at a time when the market was ready for some good deals.

Ground Breaking This Week For Our First LEED Building

Chadwell Elementary

Construction started this week on the expansion of Chadwell Elementary at 321 Port Drive in Madison T.N.

Not only will the 9,000-square-foot expansion add two kindergarten classes, expand the existing cafeteria, triple the size of the library and add a teachers’ workroom to the building. But, it will also be the first LEED project for Southeast Venture.

The project’s LEED silver classification falls within the mayor’s mandate that all future development within the Metro Nashville school district be LEED certified.

We’re excited to take our first (and certainly not our last) step into green design.

The existing school is 42,605-square-feet, with original buildings from 1955 and 1958. Additions were added in 1988 and 2005, when a gym was added to the facilities

The finished project will be roughly 52,000-square-feet with a 437-student capacity.

TG Constructors, Inc. will head up construction. Gaius Overton from Southeast Venture led the architecture and design of the project. Our engineers came from EMC Structural Engineers, P.C., Envision Advantage, LLC and Barge Cauthen & Associates also consulted on the project.

Construction is expected to take 10 months. Check back here for updates on the project.
