Real estate investment firm BBCB Investments LLC is seeking zoning approval to redevelop two adjacent properties in Brentwood, Tenn., to a mixed-use site that will include self-storage and an office complex. The proposal for the 4.2-acre site at 255 and 263 Wilson Pike Circle requires a zoning change on just one of the properties to allow self-storage, according to the source.
The plans include demolishing several structures that formerly operated as Bell Construction and Jim Johnson Landscaping Co. The four-story storage facility would feature 100,000 square feet of space. The three-story Bell Office Park would comprise 74,327 square feet of space, the source reported.
The city commission held an informational meeting last week to discuss the project. "After concerns about too much land being zoned to C-3, they submitted a revised application to limit the rezoning to [one] tract, which is about 2 acres," said Kirk Bednar, city manager.
The commission also expressed concern about traffic after reviewing a study of the site and surrounding area. It showed the project would lead to a "significant increase" in the delay for northbound traffic on Wilson Pike Circle, the source reported.
Once built, the office complex would generate 1,300 daily trips to the local roads, the study stated. Changing the traffic-signal timing at the intersection of Wilson Pike Circle and Church Street could help lessen traffic delays. However, a longer green light on Wilson Pike Circle would “negatively affect traffic flow on Church Street and the greater surrounding area,” making it unfeasible, according to planning department notes.
BBCB is hosting a meeting on July 27 with property owners from within 1,000 feet of the project to answer questions, the source reported. In addition, a public hearing is scheduled for Aug. 14. It’ll be followed by a second and final reading of the zoning change on Aug. 28.
