Smart Space Award - Jeff Syracuse Metro Council 15th District

Donelson Business News – November 2015

Great news about a new tenant at One Bridgestone Park, former home of the International Academy of Design & Technology (who has now moved to the Music Valley area).  The Tennessee Board of Regents will be moving in to the former original Bridgestone headquarters and make it their own HQ.  This will bring 112 jobs to this building and be great for our area restaurants and retail shops.

The Nashville Business Journal announced the 2015 Corporate Giving Awards and Smart Space was a winner among many great companies.  Congratulations to Smart Space President Floyd Shechter and the whole team for a very deserving award!

As Nashville and Middle Tennessee continue to create a master plan for mass transit in our region, the Music City Star is becoming more attractive in that the foundation is already built.  Mt Juliet and Wilson County are working to develop the areas around their train stations into true transit-oriented-development areas.  Our Donelson Station is the first train stop outside of downtown Nashville and could be a very tangible solution to offering more transit options.

Congratulations and welcome to The Dixie Drip mobile coffee shop with lunch, ice cream and more to the heart of Donelson on Old Lebanon Pike.  Upon moving to The Donelson Plaza area, neighbors have been raving about the great coffee, food and service with a smile.  Be sure to check them out.

Hip Donelson is hosting the second annual support of Small Business Saturday on November 28th.  Shoppers will be given a card to take to all participating businesses to be punched.  Those completed cards will be entered into a drawing for a gift basket with items from participating businesses.
