Hill Realty gets rezoning for Brentwood project

In a unanimous vote, City of Brentwood Commissioners voted unanimously Monday night to approve H.G. Hill Realty Co.’s request to rezone land on which the development company envisions a mixed-use project.

The company now will submit a detailed site plan for review to the Brentwood Planning Commission by Sept. 2.

The approval will allow the Nashville-based company to pursue its development plans for Hill Center Brentwood, which will include a mix of restaurant and retail space in addition to Class A office space. The combined properties include the former Murray Ohio and the former Tennessee Baptist Convention headquarters sites from its current C-1 zoning to C-2.

In May, Hill Realty announced that accounting and business consulting firm Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain will serve as anchor office tenant, occupying approximately 65,000 square feet of a building that will sit at the high-profile southeast corner of the Franklin Road and Maryland Way intersection.

Hill Realty CEO Jimmy Granbery expressed thanks to commissioners and the community.

“While this has been a very long and arduous process, we feel the time was well spent in meeting with the community and learning more about what they want to see in this new gateway to Maryland Farms, and we are excited to begin the next phase working with the Planning Commission on the final details,” he said in a release.
