Partners break ground


Partners Development hosted a groundbreaking ceremony at its 11400 Parkside Drive development Thursday, May 19, to commemorate the end of one project and the beginning of the creation of a five-story office building in Farragut.

Ronald Watkins, president of Partners Development, said the ceremony was to commemorate the completion of its three-story office building known as Parkside Plaza II and to have a groundbreaking for Parkside Plaza I, a five-story office building.

“It’s going to be a new building,” said Watkins. “It’s going to be the largest office building in the area.”

Watkins said Parkside Plaza I will be 103,000 square feet and five stories. As with Parkside Plaza II, it will house professional offices. Parkside Plaza II tenants include GIA Endoscopy, University Orthopaedic Surgeons, SEO Rehab, Gastrointestinal Assoc-iates, P.C., Hematology-Oncology Associates, Laboratory Corpo-ration of America, University Radiology at Turkey Creek, Vein Clinics of America, National Neuro L.L.C., and Faculty Internal Medicine.

Watkins said about 75 percent of the new building has already been leased. Tenants include: Sun Coke Company, Regions Bank and Morgan Keegan and Company.

“We still have plenty of room for those who may need office space,” Watkins joked with the crowd at the Thursday groundbreaking. “I’d like to thank John Turley of Turkey Creek Land Partners for talking me into buying this piece of property because I sure couldn’t afford it today.”

Farragut Mayor W. Edward “Eddy” Ford III said he is excited to have this new office in the town.

“I never thought I’d see the day we have a five-story building in Farragut,” he said. “This is a great thing.”
