NASHVILLE, TENN. — Velocis, a private equity real estate investment management firm, has recently completed the $15 million renovation of Two Eleven Commerce, a 233,341-square-foot office building located at 211 Commerce St. in downtown Nashville. Velocis purchased the 11-story office tower in spring 2020 with Lincoln Property Co., the third joint venture between the two Dallas-based firms.
Built in 2000, the office building’s renovations include a two-story lobby with a new glass entry portal, contemporary conference center, integrated tenant lounge with indoor/outdoor seating, onsite catering kitchen and a fitness center with full locker rooms and showers. Other improvements throughout the office tower include upgraded and modernized elevators and elevator bays, exterior paint, new windows and a new gateless entry parking system in the building garage.
Additionally, two new tenants are joining Two Eleven Commerce. Recruiting firm IQTalent leased the top three floors (67,000 square feet) and will have building signage, and burger chain Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer is opening a restaurant on the ground level in spring 2023. Sarah Pettigrew, Bill Adair and Ashley Marshall of JLL are the leasing agents at Two Eleven Commerce. About 90,000 square feet is currently available at the office building, including about 15,000 square feet of speculative office suites, according to Velocis.
