Latest News on New Spring Hill Development Along I-65
Developers of the 700+ acre parcel of land abutting I-65 south of Saturn Parkway came to the Spring Hill Planning Commission business meeting on Monday, April 25, with a plan to annex five additional parcels totaling 427.61 acres. If approved, this would bring the total area of the project to just over 1,100 acres.
All of the land to be annexed is in Maury County except for a small parcel in Williamson County.
Project representatives requested a review of the planned development concept for the mixed-use development proposing industrial, commercial and nature park uses. The images were exhibits for two buildings, but no details were included about tenants or available space.
Phillip Pastan of the Richmond Company of Wilmington, Mass., asked for the annexation proposal, but the Tennessean couldn’t reach him for more details about the project, dubbed “Project Suitcase” in commission papers. of planning.
The annexation application and review of the concept plan is expected to be presented at the next regular meeting of the Planning Commission scheduled for May 9.
The annexation, which was recommended by the planning commission, will be submitted to the college of mayors and aldermen for final approval. If approved, the zoning classification will be designated as AG (agricultural) and the owner will then need to submit an application to rezone the property to allow industrial and commercial uses.
At the November 2021 Council of Mayors and Aldermen meeting, the first two key parcels of land, totaling 717.2 acres – prime real estate fronting I-65 on the east side of the freeway – were unanimously rezoned from C-3 (Commercial Corridor), AG (Agriculture) and TND (Traditional Neighborhood) to I-2 (General Industry).
This rezoning shifted the primarily residential land to allow uses such as light industry, clean manufacturing centers, technology and data centers, and other uses that would occupy large campus-type developments.
