NASHVILLE, Tenn., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Music City's most innovative workspace opens Thursday, Aug. 15, cementing East Nashville as the go-to neighborhood for entrepreneurs, startups and small companies.


Center 615 (six one five), at 615 Main St., also sets a new standard for cool work environments with its modern, distinctive decor. Quirky touches throughout highlight owner Christian Paro's fondness for science fiction.

"The future is already here," he says. "What people need in a workplace has evolved way beyond cubicles.

"East Nashville is fun and edgy and Center 615 reflects that," Paro says.

Center 615 includes 37 office suites, from 100 to 2,000 square feet, coworking desks and workstations available for daily, weekly or monthly rental. Tenants have access to additional conference rooms and an event space/art gallery next door at Paro South Creative Suites, and those tenants have access to Center 615's amenities. Videoconferencing and film screening capabilities are available, too.

"We are building a vibrant campus for small companies and creative professionals," Paro says.

In addition to office suites, Center 615 features a rooftop lounge and outdoor event space, plus themed conference rooms, fitness area, break areas with kitchens, and free onsite parking.

Providing space for businesses to collaborate and help each other grow is one of Paro's passions. Already, LiveSchool, an edtech startup, has worked with four other tenants, and Make It Pop Creations, a video production company, has worked with three. Both moved from Paro South into larger spaces.

"Center 615 offers a lot of opportunity to grow," says Kevin Kazlauskas, founder and producer of Make It Pop. "This is an active, engaged working community making a difference in Nashville's economy."

The first phase opened to new tenants in April, and small firms and solopreneurs have been setting up shop since June in Phase 2. The building's west wing remains occupied by Hardaway Construction, which sold 615 Main St. to Paro South LLC in December.

The grand opening celebration begins at 5 p.m., and media representatives can tour the complex throughout the day. Food, drinks and live music follow the ribbon cutting at 5:30 p.m.
