500 Hundred Homes Proposed For Mt. Juliet

Posted: Updated:

MT. JULIET, Tenn. – A tremendous amount of growth has come to one Wilson County city.

In recent years, the City of Mt. Juliet has experienced a period of development and growth, particularly, with success of the Providence Market Place. Now, a plan has been proposed to bring 500 new homes to the northern part of town.

With thousands of new homes and businesses being built in the Providence area, there has been concern from those living on the other side of town.

"The north side businesses really struggled a lot since everybody wants to be located near Providence which took off like crazy," said Terry Voyles, a business owner in Mt. Juliet.

Organizes said the new development will be called Nichols Vale and it will be located just off of Lebanon Road. The city manager said homes and townhomes will be priced between $225,000 and $500,000.

"I think there's a little bit of multifamily, but the majority is single family residential," Mt. Juliet City Manager, Kenny Martin said of the proposed homes.

Corleen Cooper recently started a new pet grooming business on Lebanon Road. Until now, she has been relying on foot traffic and word of mouth to get the business off the ground. She said she hopes the new homes will increase her business.

"I'm excited," said Cooper. "I'd love to see more homes and more community support."

The developers of the new homes are Pearl Street Partners from Brentwood and Crescent Communities, based in Charlotte, North Carolina.

"We're excited," said Martin. "They did great work in Franklin and we're welcoming them with open arms and we can't wait for them to get here."

Developers said they hope to get started sometime in 2014. The proposal has been approved by the Mt. Juliet Planning Commission, but City Commissioners still have to approve the plans.
