Hill Realty sets meetings to discuss Brentwood site future

H.G. Hill Realty Company announced today its will host meetings on April 3 and April 10 to seek Brentwood residents' input regarding the future development of the company's property on Franklin Road.

Both meetings will be held from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the auditorium of the Tennessee Baptist Convention building located at 5001 Maryland Way.

The Nashville-based developer originally wanted to team with GBT Realty to reinvent the site — last home to Murray Ohio and the TBC — with a large-scale mixed-use project. To span 17 acres and be called The Streets of Brentwood (read here), the proposed project met with some strong citizen push-back and was scrapped (read here). 

In a release, Hill Realty officials said the two meetings will be held as part of an analysis of development options for the site, which anchors the southwest corner of the Maryland Way and Franklin Road intersection.

The company will not be presenting development plans during the sessions, according to the release. Rather, Hill officials will “engage in a dialogue with interested citizens to help guide and inform internal planning.”

The meetings will not replace the formal process required by the City of Brentwood planning department and zoning code, the release notes.

Hill purchased the TBC site in late 2013 (read more here). It already owned the former Murray Ohio land.
