Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce Announces Move to Capitol View
The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce announced Friday, August 16, that it will relocate its offices next spring to Capitol View. The new space is being built out specifically for the Chamber and will allow the organization to continue to grow and provide its members with opportunities to network and engage with fellow business leaders.
“As a regional chamber, we felt it was important to be centrally located, and remaining downtown was one of our primary goals as our lease expired,” said Ralph Schulz, president and CEO of the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce. “We look forward to welcoming and continuing to serve our members at our new space at Capitol View in spring 2020.”
The office will be located in the new office building at Capitol View, 500 11th Ave. North. The Chamber’s space will enable the organization to remain a part of Nashville’s downtown core and continue serving its more than 2,000 member companies.
The Nashville Health Care Council will also move and co-locate with the Chamber, joining a number of companies in Capitol View, including HCA Healthcare, WeWork, HealthStream, Parallon, Sarah Cannon, LifeWay and ProviderTrust. The development also includes the soon-to-be-open Frankie Pierce Park, which serves as a trail head for the Nashville Greenway, linking the district to various biking and walking trails in Davidson County.
“The addition of the Chamber to the district will be a key contributor to the business innovation, collaboration and growth at Capitol View,” said Jeff Haynes, partner at Boyle and developer of Capitol View. “Our vision for Capitol View was to create a true community of Nashville residents, business leaders and organizations. The mission of the Chamber perfectly aligns with our goals and will continue to strengthen the community being built.”
The Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce is Middle Tennessee’s largest regional business association with a purpose of creating economic prosperity by facilitating community leadership. The Chamber’s relocation allows the organization to build a space that meets current and future needs, while continuing to invest in the growth of the region.
With this lease, the Capitol View office at 500 11thAve. North is 75 percent leased. This is significantly ahead of projections, and is a testament to how the market is responding to the years of thoughtful planning and execution of the mixed-use district.
Capitol View is home to numerous restaurants and retailers, including Jón Alan Salon, Clean Juice, drybar, Starbucks, Your Pie, M.L.Rose, SVM Boutique, Sercy + Co., Club Pilates, and Valerie Boutique. Retailers coming soon include Publix, HOTBOX, Rukus Cycling Studio, VICI and Central BBQ.
The Capitol View district is also home to The Residences at Capitol View, a 378-unit, multifamily, luxury residential community, which is more than 90 percent leased.
