Tommy Pierce, owner of A+ Storage of Tennessee LLC, is seeking final site-plan approval to build a mixed-use project in Bellevue, Tenn., that will include self-storage. A+ Storage Old Hickory in Bellevue will be the company’s first development in West Nashville, according to the source.
Plans for the 7-acre site at 497 and 501 Old Hickory Blvd., which Pierce owns, include four buildings and 100,000 square feet of storage space. Pierce may sell two 1-acre lots that front Old Hickory Boulevard to retail or mixed-use developers or develop them himself, the source reported.
“We love what's going on in Bellevue. With the growth [moving] west and complete renovation of the Bellevue Mall area, it is really exciting,” Pierce said.
Construction will begin as soon as the site plan is approved and building permits are obtained, the source reported. The $7 million project is expected to be complete in spring 2017.
Founded in 2003, A+ Storage operates seven facilities in Fortress, La Vergne, Mt. Juliet/Providence, Murfreesboro, Nashville, Nolensville and Spring Hill/Columbia, Tenn. In 2014, the company sold five facilities for $33.6 million. The properties were in Clarksville, Franklin, Gallatin, Hendersonville and Hermitage, Tenn.
Two A+ Storage employees—senior vice president of operations Stephanie Tharpe and property manager Ashley Dawn—presented seminars this year at the Inside Self-Storage World Expo in Las Vegas, April 25-28. Tharpe spoke on “Conquering Self-Storage Job Burnout,” while Dawn addressed “The Facts of Self-Storage Life: Things You Need to Know About Being a Facility Manager.” Copies of both presentations are available for purchase at www.insideselfstoragestore.com.
