The owners of the Nashville Gymnastics Training Center plan to move to West Davidson County from West Nashville in May.
As of June 2012, the for-profit company has operated approximately 14,000 square feet of leased space in a building at 3317 Charlotte Ave. Justine Bobinger, co-owner of the business with Stephanie Davis, said NGTC will have approximately 21,400 square feet in a new building, currently under construction, located at 104 Centennial Circle in Westport Business Park near John C. Tune Airport. .
Via JJ&K Holdings, Bobinger and Davis acquired in May for $ 475,000 the 3-acre site on which the future structure will be installed.
âThis will be a big move for us,â said Bobinger, adding that her husband Brian Bobinger is heavily involved in the business, the logistics of the move and the construction of the new building.
âThe new space will give us the ability to double our registration, as well as increase our event capacity,â said Bobinger. âAnd we’ll probably add two to three full-time and five part-time positions. It will also allow us to attract a lot of students from areas both north and west of here. “
NGTC offers a monthly enrollment model, with the company currently training 875 students. Last January and February, the number of registrations exceeded 1,000. The company employs 26 full-time and part-time employees.
Lowen + Associates is the architect of the new building (click on the render above to see a larger version), with Wellspring Builders handling the general contractor duties. Both are locally based.
Bobinger said she and Davis were not disclosing the overall cost of undertaking the move and development. A recently issued Metro permit to allow construction of the new building is valued at approximately $ 3.32 million.
Based in Nashville, the installation group will handle the relocation of the company’s specialized equipment.
NGTC offers gymnastics training for people aged 18 months and older. The company runs summer camps, recreational classes, a preschool program, a training team and a full competition program (with 85 students). His first promotion took place in May.
âOne of our goals is to prepare students for participation in college gymnastics,â said Bobinger. âWith this move, we are delighted to be able to better serve the community. “
