Flywheel Brands, Inc. has broken ground on a new 6,000 square foot office building in Hixson. 

The one-acre site is at 2111 Hamill Road, where Flywheel Vice President of Client Development Bart Simpson said his brand marketing agency will develop a modern structure that satisfies the ongoing growth of the company.

“The overall concept of the structure is to embody efficiency and productivity in all aspects,” Mr. Simpson said. “The building itself incorporates several sustainability features to minimize energy and resource consumption.” 

Productivity elements have also been incorporated into the plans, which was designed by River Street Architecture. Several common lounge areas will be positioned to promote collaboration, while a large meeting room will be utilized for team trainings as well as client visits. A multimedia studio will also be constructed to support the company’s continued production of educational and marketing content, including its own podcast.

Near the front entrance, a showroom will display the newest, on-trend promotional products, custom apparel and trade show display elements. Additionally, the design includes a full-size kitchen and hospitality space for team members and guests, and outdoor seating accessible by two garage door partitions.

"Creating a space to support the growth and needs of our team has been the foundation of this project,” Mr. Simpson said. “The greater impact we aim to achieve is an economic development venture that revitalizes an overlooked lot in a high-traffic intersection. By erecting a building that promotes creativity and innovation, we also hope to increase the appeal of Hixson as a place for small business owners to launch their own entrepreneurial endeavors.” 

Construction on the building is slated for this fall with a projected opening in the spring of 2019.

First it was about 2,000, then we were told it’s up to 4,000. We have no way of knowing who’s coming or what their purpose is. NBC and CNN assure us they are seeking sanctuary but how can we know? Neither Honduras or our subjective media in America have been honest with us in the past. So, how do we know why that many people are marching across Central America?   ... (click for more)

About this time last month a 25-year-old kid with a fresh degree in “public policy” left me a phone call hoping to get my views.
