8-19-15

Warby Parker, the New York City-based eyewear company, appears to be moving toward opening a stand-alone retail store in Nashville.

NEW BUSINESS in EDGEHILL NASHVILLE

A building permit filed today shows $15,000 worth of rehab work to be done for a new tenant, Warby Parker, located in Edgehill Village. A retail store would be another indicator of the $1.2 billion fashion company’s continued interest in Nashville as a place to do business and of the city’s changing retail landscape.

Last fall, Warby Parker announced that it would open a corporate office in Nashville, adding 250 jobs locally. Economic development officials consider the recruitment a coup for the city and a potential game-changer, given the company’s clout and caliber in fashion and tech, as well as its global consumer recognition.

“With any corporate relocation, whether it’s of this caliber or any, I think other companies that are similar to this take notice,” said Courtney Ross, chief economic development officer at the Nashville Chamber of Commerce, at the time.

Though it started as an online, direct-to-consumer brand, Warby Parker has been expanding its brick-and-mortar retail presence, starting with store-in-store displays in like-minded retailers. In Nashville, for example, they currently sell eyeglasses out of 12South’s Imogene + Willie. The company recently raised $100 million to expand stand alone retail locations. According to TechCruch, the company wants to expand from from 12 to 20 retail locations by year’s end.

Nashville-based fast-casual restaurant group Fresh Hospitality is set to expand, again.

The company has the former home of Hillsboro Village mainstay Sunset Grill under contract, with plans to bring three Fresh concepts to the building, said Matt Bodnar, a partner in the company.

The building, located at 2001 Belcourt Ave., is tucked just off Hillsboro Village’s main drag, and offers 6,359 square feet of space, with the option to share 70 parking spots with neighboring Cabana.

Current owner, restaurateur RandyRayburn, bought the building in 1994. After 24 years operating Sunset Grill, Rayburn closed the restaurant this past New Years Eve, and told the Nashville Business Journal in January that he was looking to sell the building. His asking price? A cool $2.69 million. Rayburn bought the building for roughly $450,000.

Bodnar said Fresh anticipates splitting the 6,000 square foot space into three — two roughly the same same square footage and one slightly smaller. The company hasn’t decided which Fresh concepts it would open in Hillsboro Village, but Bodnar said a Juice Bar and a Taziki’s are being considered.
