Pinnacle to Open Belle Meade Office
Pinnacle Financial Partners plans to start construction at the end of April for a full-service banking location in the Hill Center at Belle Meade. The two-story, 6,600 square foot facility is scheduled to open in October 2009 at 4328 Harding Pike.
Designed by Hastings Architecture Associates, Pinnacle Belle Meade will continue Pinnacle’s distinctive contemporary architectural style. Phipps Construction is the general contractor.
Plans call for two drive-through banking lanes and a drive-up automated teller machine (ATM). The interior space will include client service areas, nine offices, two conference rooms as well as Pinnacle signature design elements, a water wall and the Pinnacle Learning Center for meetings, workshops and use by community groups.
“The new office will provide Pinnacle clients added convenience in Belle Meade, a key part of the Nashville market,” said Robert A. McCabe, Pinnacle chairman. “The Hill Center at Belle Meade is in the heart of the community, and we’re eager to serve both business and consumer clients from this prime location.”
In addition to building three new offices in Middle Tennessee and two in Knoxville this year, Pinnacle will add approximately 70 associates to its workforce. By the end of the year Pinnacle plans to have 35 locations and nearly 800 associates.
