Interesting bit of news here for those folks who follow Memphis happenings. Pinnacle, long based out by the Memphis airport, is going to be taking 12 floors of the One Commerce Square building downtown, one of the most prominent buildings on the Memphis skyline. This building was formerly home to National Bank of Commerce and later SunTrust Bank, both of which had their logo at the top. I hope Pinnacle will do the same with their logo, and I strongly suspect they will. Off the top of my head, I can't think of any airlines (at least in the US) with a downtown HQ location.
From the Memphis Commercial Appeal: Pinnacle officials announced on Wednesday the selection of Main Street over Olive Branch, Miss., and an airport-area office complex where Pinnacle is currently based. The company operates three regional airlines, Pinnacle, Mesaba and Colgan, that haul passengers for mainline carriers such as Delta and Continental.
The news capped an all-out push by public and private sectors that began this summer when it appeared Memphis might lose the headquarters to Mississippi.
