Mitsubishi will occupy about 40,000 square feet of office space in McEwen Northside, a 45-acre, mixed-use development in the heart of Cool Springs near McEwen Drive. The car company will be located on the sixth and seventh floors of 4015 Aspen Grove Drive, Franklin, and is expected to move into the office in spring 2020, according to a new release from the company.
The automaker announced its move to Franklin from Cypress, California, earlier this year and has set up temporary offices in Mallory Green, located near the McEwen Northside development. The company is expected to create 150 jobs in the area, with 50 new employees already hired, according to Mitsubishi. A public announcement of the new office was made during Williamson Inc.’s Annual Celebration event Nov. 19.
“Our move to Tennessee marks the most visible part of the broad and substantive reinvention of every aspect of our business that is underway at Mitsubishi Motors North America,” MMNA President and CEO Fred Diaz said in a statement. “While we cannot wait to move to our permanent home, there is so much ‘great’ happening around the company now and in the near future. With a brave new leadership team, new-look dealerships and all-new vehicles, the future is indeed bright for Mitsubishi Motors.”
Additional tenants in McEwen Northside include Springhill Suites, Perry’s Steakhouse, Tiff’s Treats and Williamson Inc., which announced in April it would be moving its offices from Meridian Boulevard in 2020. The development will also feature multifamily living and additional restaurant and office space. McEwen Northside is being developed by Boyle Investment Co.
