First transit-oriented development in TN breaks ground

By PATRICK HALL
The Wilson Post

A one-of-a-kind transit-oriented development broke ground yesterday as developers Jack and Rick Bell celebrated the start of construction of Hamilton Springs, which could house residents this time next year.

Rick Bell said the location of the development off Highway 70, across from Richmond Hills subdivision, was once the site of a mineral springs resort almost 100 years ago, where people would travel from Nashville by train.

Today, were brining that spirit back here, with the first transit-oriented development in Tennessee, Bell said.

The mixed-use development is expected to include high-end apartments, businesses, single-family homes and condos. Everything will be centered on the Music City Star commuter train that runs through the development, with a new stop to be constructed in the near future.

The train stop was approved, but we are responsible for building it, Bell said.

The first building within the site will be the Hamilton Station Apartments, consisting of 396 units across from a village square that was designed to mimic Lebanons own historic center.

Three architects from the group tasked with designing the park and museum were on hand to talk to citizens and veterans in attendance about the design and thought processes behind their work.

Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto said the park and museum would be built without using any money from the countys general fund, but instead would come to fruition through donations from residents and businesses.

We are not going to take any taxpayer money to build this, Hutto said.
