The large-scale development project that was slated for Brentwood by H.G. Hill Realty has been scrapped after much opposition from neighbors and community members.
The development, which we blogged about here, was underway for the 17 acres of land formerly home to the Murray Ohio headquarters building and the nearby Tennessee Baptist Convention Center, on the corner of Franklin Road and Maryland Way.
The development, to be known as The Streets of Brentwood, had been a long-awaited project and had plans to feature more than 970,000 square feet of office space, retail, residential units, a hotel and a movie theater.
Despite receiving zoning approval in mid-November of last year, major concerns regarding traffic the project would create ultimately cast a large shadow over its development.
In a letter send to the Brentwood City Commission last week Friday, Hill Realty CEO said moving forward with the project would be difficult given the volatile situation with the vocal opposition to the project.
What do you think about the project being abandoned? Were you concerned about the traffic it would create, too? Would you like to see a development go up in that area in Brentwood? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
