Trail-Oriented Development Proposed For East Nashville Site.

A preliminary site plan application was filed last week to rezone from RS10 to SP zoning for 301 Ben Allen Road and adjacent parcels. The 10-acre property is sandwiched between Dickerson Pike and Ellington Parkway in East Nashville. If approved, the SP would Permit the 245-unit, trail-oriented development currently named Ben Allen Apartments.

It’s also worth noting that this project boasts a Nashville Strong Development Team:

  • Developer: The Clear Blue Company – Franklin, TN
  • Engineer: Alfred Benesch & Company – Nashville TN
  • Architect: EOA- Nashville, TN
  • Landscape Architect: Hawkins Partners – Nashville, TN
