Charlotte Avenue development briefs

Just a few tidbits to report on as Charlotte Avenue continues to gain more attention.

New Business

Planet Fitness is in fact taking over the former McKay's Used CDs and Books location across from Krogers on Charlotte Avenue. I have seen no reports of an opening date, but I would assume they'll have their doors open in time for all the folks setting new year's resolutions.

Speedy Cash I think everyone knows where I stand on these predatory establishments...I was hoping that the new building was going to be something a little more reputable than another quick cash place, but sign went up recently confirming. This building is located east of the Kroger on Charlotte in a newly rehabbed building.

Ascend Federal Credit Union is constructing a brand new facility at 1901 Charlotte Avenue. The permit states that the location will have drive thru teller service. No mention of an estimated open date.

KSA Martial Academy recently opened across from Richland Park. For details visit their site here.

Re*store Neighborhood Spa had a soft opening this weekend. A quaint spa offering massage, nail and aesthetic services in a peaceful and relaxing setting. Stay tuned for an upcoming post featuring an interview with the owner of Re*store.

Yet another one of those god-awful check cashing places is going in at the building vacated by Carquest Auto Parts on White Bridge near Charlotte. SMH.

Stumbled upon your blog this evening - as a new resident of Sylvan Heights, really appreciate the efforts here. I'll look forward to reading more !

I just saw an article on Tennessean about Nuvo leaving Charlotte Ave and being replaced with Hattie B's. Love Hattie B's and excited for that, but absolutely hate to see Nuvo go. Would take a Nuvo or Hattie B's over another check cashing joint any day!
