BlueCross subsidiary leases space

A subsidiary of BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has leased 25,000 square feet of office space near the Mall at Green Hills with plans for 100 employees.
The new lease would boost occupancy of the Green Hills Office Building — owned by developer John Rochford's Battleship Partners — to 100 percent.

Most new hires will be associate care coordinators with medical backgrounds and care coordinator assistants to handle clerical tasks for CHOICES, the state's long-term care program.

BlueCross is one of the three managed-care companies with contracts to handle long-term care needs of beneficiaries on TennCare.

Last year, a lease under which Vanderbilt University Medical Center said it would take up 70,000 square feet of space in the same building was among Nashville's biggest lease signings for 2009.

In recent months, restaurant Table 3 has become a building tenant.

Rochford also is key owner of the nearby Green Hills Commons Building that in recent months added causal dining eatery Yolo and a nail salon.
