About Scott Fish, Developer

Leveraging his company’s resources to redevelop troubled assets, Principal of UP Development Scott Fish has engaged in a multitude of local and regional workout projects over the past 17 years. Operating his company out of Tennessee, Scott Fish worked in close conjunction with the Nashville Predators of the NHL to develop and sustain youth hockey programs in the state. In fulfilling this endeavor, he purchased a declining community ice rink and redeveloped the facility. Scott Fish purchased the 110,000-square-foot building in Franklin, Tennessee, for less than half of its original cost just before it was about to shut down. Securing an expansion of 70,000 square feet, he and his company added basketball and volleyball courts, as well as renovating the existing ice rink. At the time of its purchase, the facility hosted only a smattering of high school teams and games. By the end of Scott Fish’s redevelopment efforts, more than 20 schools held hockey games at the community facility, known today as the A-Game Sportsplex. Currently, Scott Fish and his associates at UP Development are engaged the redevelopment of a 250,000-square-foot retail center in Orange County, Florida. Stalled for five years, this $36-million workout project involves the Branch Banking and Trust Company (BB&T) buyout of Colonial Bank, a former subsidiary of Colonial Bancgroup Inc. Additional works in progress include a relocation of a Toys “R” Us from the Orlando Fashion Square mall and the completion of a 60,000-square-foot Toys “R” Us at Orlando’s Mall at Millenia. Supporting his community through a multitude of venues, Scott Fish has raised money for the officers of the Franklin Police Department and their families, as well as sponsoring the purchase of musical instruments for schoolchildren across the country.
