ABRA Auto Body Headed for Former Harley Site

A real estate investment trust has paid $3.15 million for the former Harley-Davidson motorcycle dealership site in West Nashville and has a vehicle repair company lined up for the space, according to Getahn Wardgward, writing in the Tennessean, and other media reports.

ABRA Auto Body & Glass plans to open its eighth Nashville area location at the 22,000-square-foot building that sits on 2.35 acres at 46th Avenue North and Delaware Avenue. It has a lease with Realty Income Properties, which purchased the property from C&S Properties GP.

The property in The Nations neighborhood off Charlotte Pike was once home to Bost Harley-Davidson, which closed two years ago.

Locally, Brooklyn Park, MN-based ABRA Auto Body & Glass has locations around downtown Nashville, Gallatin, Madison, Lebanon, Franklin, Murfreesboro and Smyrna. The company gained a foothold in the market through acquiring Bradshaw Collision Repair Centers’ locations in Nashville, Gallatin, Madison, Franklin and Murfreesboro.

This summer, private equity firm Palladium Equity Partners LLC sold ABRA to affiliates of fellow private equity firm Hellman & Friedman LLC along with the vehicle repair company’s senior management team.
