Hobbs Building

Hobbs Building — one of Green Hills’ first office structures when it opened in 1975 — has sold for about $16.7 million, according to a Davidson County Register of Deeds document.

Located at 4205 Hillsboro Pike at that street's intersection with Hobbs Road, the three-story building sits on roughly 3.5 acres.

The new owner is a local LLC that involves Bert Mathews, a partner with commercial real estate company Colliers International Nashville, and some silent investors. Colliers handles leasing and management of the building.

The seller was The Allen Company Inc., an affiliated entity with which paid $2,925,000 for the property in 1978, Metro records note.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the modernist building offered a Shoney’s restaurant. It is also known by long-time locals as the former home of the Ohio Valley Conference, an NCAA college athletics league that is now headquartered in Brentwood.

The Post was unable to determine if brokers were involved in the transaction.

My position with Nashville Post has evolved since 2000 when I began work with the now-defunct The City Paper. TCP became a Post sister pub in 2008 (when I began some Post work) and folded in 2013. I have worked mainly with the Post since late 2011.
