Hill Realty unveils vision for prominent Brentwood corner

Five office buildings, two garages planned for 17-acre site

Developer Jimmy Granbery on Thursday evening presented his preliminary plans to redevelop the high-profile, 17-acre property at Franklin Road and Maryland Way in Brentwood, unveiling a vision that draws a lot from his (locally) pioneering Hill Center at Green Hills.

H.G. Hill Realty's plans call for five office buildings that will have a combined 450,000 square feet of space as well as 150,000 square feet of retail space and two garages that will hold a total of at least 1,200 cars. As with the company's Green Hills project, which is anchored by a Whole Foods store, the Brentwood plan features a narrow through road lined by shops and restaurants.

In the sketch below, structures colored blue are slated to be office building while pink is retail and white represents parking garages. The striped areas represented ground-floor retail in either an office building or a garage. The plan calls for about 40 percent less square footage than the Streets of Brentwood project Hill Realty and GBT Realty proposed in the fall of 2012. Unlike that vision, it also features no residential component.

Granbery and his team — the designers are Brentwood-based Thomas Miller & Partners and Cooper Carry Architects out of Atlanta — plan to submit their detailed plan to Brentwood officials today. If things move forward without hiccups, construction of a first phase — featuring accounting firm LBMC's new headquarters — will be complete in the second half of 2016.
