NASHVILLE, TN (September 18, 2014)Middle Tennesseans will finally have a place to buy Tesla brand vehicles. The California-based luxury electric car company, which is one of the hottest luxury brands in the world today, signed a lease at 1641 Westgate Circle, the former location of Five Star Motorcars, in Brentwood. The 12,370 square-foot, former dealership has undergone extensive renovations to house a state-of-the-art showroom and service center for Tesla vehicles. This will be the first retail showroom for the brand in the entire state of Tennessee.

“We enjoyed working with Tesla throughout an extensive real estate search of Middle Tennessee.  The initial requirement for a simple service center facility quickly evolved into a need for a prime retail showroom due to the popularity of the brand,” explained Jerry Miele, a Colliers International broker who represented Tesla Motors along with colleague Radley Hendrixson CCIM.

Landlord representative Allen McDonald CCIM of Baker, Storey, McDonald provided additional insight.  “Tesla has emerged as a cutting edge technology company with a sales trajectory that is exceeding the company’s highest projections. The building in Brentwood was a near perfect fit for Tesla’s retail needs, and should quickly become a regional and state-wide draw to the Cool Springs area”.
