A plan to build multiple buildings that would total more than 1.1 million square feet of office, manufacturing and warehouse space on just over 64 acres in Gallatin is moving forward.
Al. Neyer, a company with multiple building projects in Middle Tennessee, is the applicant for the plan that was presented under the code name Project Bowtie. Gallatin planning commissioners approved the site plan for the property south and east of Airport Road and north of Coles Ferry Road.
The plan approved has four buildings. Two buildings are connected to Project Bowtie, Fenton said.
No user has been disclosed for the two buildings. Al. Neyer didn't not comment on Project Bowtie.
An announcement on Project Bowtie could be made in the coming weeks, Gallatin Economic Development Agency Director James Fenton said.
Building 1 will be just over 416,000 square feet and can be expanded by an additional 303,520 square feet, according to planning documents. Building 2 just over 80,000 square feet with the potential to expand by just over 16,000 square feet.
"I think as soon as an announcement is made there will be some activity out there," Fenton said of potential movement to start construction.
Two additional speculative buildings are approvedat 160,800 square feet and 147,840 square feet respectively. Fenton expects construction to start on those buildings when tenants are confirmed.
The property is vacant and has been used as farm land, planning documents state.
A traffic impact study was conducted, but still under review with the city's engineering division. Changes that include onsite and offsite improvements recommended with the approved traffic study should be reflected on the site plan, planning documents state.
Al. Neyer is a real estate development and design-build company that includes industrial facilities, office and medical buildings, build-to-suit commercial projects, multi-unit residential and urban mixed-use developments.
Al. Neyer projects approved and moving include:
- Two four-story apartment buildings totaling more than 200 units in Hendersonville’s Indian Lake Village area.
- Shoals Way Industrial, a 638,400 SF speculative bulk industrial warehouse in Portland.
- Two industrial buildings approved on Highway 31W in Goodlettsville.
Al. Neyer also has a variety of projects in Wilson County including two industrial buildings that will total 411,150 square feet planned near Murfreesboro Road and Alligood Way and a new 189,350-square-foot National Indoor RV Centers building to store luxury motor coach vehicles for owners at 1640 Old Murfreesboro Road.
