FirstBank Inks One of the First Big Post-Coronavirus Leases in the Music City

GBT Realty handled the principal tenant for its most up to date office venture in downtown Nashville.

FirstBank will be taking about 52,000 square feet in the ONE22ONE tower, which is set to convey in mid-2022. The lease likewise gives FirstBank essential rights to an extra 50,000 square feet of room in the tower if the firm chooses it needs to grow office space later.

The lease by FirstBank brings preleasing for the tower up to 16%, as indicated by CoStar information.

Be that as it may, there is still a great deal of accessible space in progress across downtown. About portion of the 4.8 million square feet under development is as yet accessible for rent. On the off chance that the entirety of this space conveys without occupants, opening over the urban center could ascend to almost 20%.

Fortunately the vast majority of this pipeline isn’t required to convey until 2021 or later, giving owners and office brokers time to secure tenants before the building comes available.
