Donelson Business News – August 2016

Welcome to Donelson, Frost-Arnett, which has just moved from downtown to Elm Hill Pike and has added more than 60 new local employees.  Read about their move to Donelson and expansion in the Nashville Business Journal article here.

We welcome another new business to Donelson, It’s That Simple Dance & Fitness at 2720 Old Lebanon Pike in the Donelson Plaza.  They offer personal training, fitness classes, dance classes, nutritional advice and much more.

Lakeland Pointe is a new residential community in the works from Frank Batson Homes.  Located at 410 Donelson Pike, these beautiful homes will be the first of their kind in Donelson and offer many beautiful amenities.  Check them out here.

Another new business coming to Donelson is Paper and Ink Arts.  They recently purchased a vacant building on Graylynn Drive and are in the process of rehabbing it.  Check out their website here and their Facebook page here to keep up with their progress.  They also have a local market survey for the community to provide feedback here.

I have been working with Metro Planning and management at Opry Mills to amend the existing zoning code to allow Smith Creek Moonshine Distillery to operate there.  This would be a unique amenity at Opry Mills and I welcome the additional entertainment draw being offered.  Read about it in The Tennessean’s article here.
