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.

Williamson ECD pipeline gets smaller, more balanced

The economic development team in Williamson County is in the hunt for more than 30 projects that would bring with them almost 10,700 jobs. Those are solid numbers any way you look at them, but they are down quite a bit from the figures from mid-2013. Also noticeable is that health care projects account for about a third of the potential ECD wins, down from half a year ago.

Major Cool Springs parcel hits market

A major piece of Williamson County property — and likely the last of its size in the general Cool Springs area — has hit the market.

Denver-based Amstar has appointed HFF to market and sell Northside at McEwen, an undeveloped 44.9-acre tract located near CoolSprings Galleria and on the west side of Interstate 65.

The land is zoned to accommodate a mixture of uses, including more than 870,000 square feet of commercial space, 580 residential units and a 150-room hotel.

HFF previously represented Amstar in June when the intermediary sold Southside at McEwen, a high-end grocery center anchored by Whole Foods.

HFF Managing Directors Jim Hamilton and Richard Reid are marketing the tract, for which an asking price has not been set.

“I think that this land will command a premium because this is the last major piece of land for development of scale in Cool Springs and such a tremendous amount of development,” Hamilton said. “This is the last major piece of a major scale.”
