Finding a job in today’s world is a whole lot harder than it was back when the economy was strong. Nevertheless, giant corporations are constantly working on new projects in different areas, thereby creating more job positions for the unemployed to fill.
That being said, there’s good news for jobless residents of Nashville - city government officials and company officers of HCA Holdings Inc. recently announced the health care facilities operator’s plans for major expansion within the Davidson County.
Not only that, but the hospital giant’s extension will pave the way for construction on one of Nashville’s highest-profile commercial real estate projects, namely: West End Summit, which measures 900,000 square feet in total.
Moreover, two companies affiliated with HCA, Sarah Cannon Research Institute and Parallon Business Solutions, were reportedly searching for 400,000 square feet of land for the purpose of building office space within the Nashville area.
According to Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, one of the West End Summit’s twin 20-storey towers will be used by Parallon, while Sarah Cannon will be anchoring in another building. Also, the amount of space to be occupied by both companies is relatively massive: Sarah Cannon is going to be occupying approximately 150,000 square feet of its tower, while Parallon will be filling in 350,000 square feet in its building.
The total number of jobs these three companies are bringing to the table adds up to more than 2000 jobs over five years, which is actually one of the biggest creation of jobs in one economic development project in the entire region’s history.
Furthermore, Parallon, a company which handles business operations for health care providers, is relocating roughly 750 jobs to Nashville from the Williamson County, and is currently planning to create another 800 positions before 2017.
As for the Sarah Cannon Research Institute, this company will be creating 200 jobs within a singular office. The cancer and heart research organization reportedly has plans of doubling its work availability by 2017.
The pay offered by these occupations would unquestionably keep residents happy, as jobs boast an average annual salary of $85,000 to $90,000.
