{phocagallery view=category|categoryid=22|imageid=120|displayname=0|float=left}Despite councils action, Frankenbach said they continued with Phase I of the center, which will soon feature a Logans Roadhouse and RCC Western Wear.

Phase I is just under 30 acres, Frankenbach said, Logans and RCC Western are a tie for our first tenants.

Lebanon Planning Commission is to consider the site plan for Logans, which will be located on what is to be known as Cumberland Center Boulevard. The entrance to the center is located between Pizza Hut and Arbys on Highway 231, just off Interstate 40.

Planning Commission will also consider approving the Final Plat for Phase I of the Cumberland Center, which includes seven lots. Logans and RCC Western are to fill two of those lots and Frankenbach said they are expecting to have more.

We hope to have some more announcements in the coming months, he said.

Frankenbach said Vastland representatives are attending the International Council of Shopping Centers, or ICSC, trade show in Las Vegas, Nev., to attract more retailers and businesses.

He said the majority of retail and restaurant chains as well as developers attend the conference in Las Vegas, leading to possibly new tenants from a regional and national level coming to Lebanon.

We are actually getting more attention from other regional and some national chains with our Phase I infrastructure now complete, Frankenbach said.

He noted both RCC Western and Logans Roadhouse would be located along the Cumberland Centers 1-mile frontage of I-40. The businesses are expected to open this fall.

Following the ICSC show, Frankenbach said they expect to have more tenants willing to move in, and more buildings ready to start construction. With larger chains beginning to locate within the Center, he said they are also hoping to have smaller shops for local stores as well.

We will only build when we have a deal and we will only make an announcement when our clients are committed, he said.

Also, Vastland recently began advertising the Executive Park at Cumberland Center, a portion of the larger development with 500,000 square feet of office space. Frankenbach said this portion of the Center would be to attract white-collar jobs to the area.

Wed like this to be a magnet for white collar jobs for Lebanon and Wilson County, he said.

As for the proposed events arena, which Craighead previously noted would not be built without funds generated by the creation of an entertainment district, Frankenbach said that arena is still in their plans.

We are still leaving that in our master plan, he said. I think a lot of people realize theres a void in this market for that type of events center with a convention space and hotel.

Lebanon Planning Commission meets at 5 p.m., Tuesday, April 24, in the Town Meeting Hall in the City of Lebanon Administration Building located at 200 N. Castle Heights Ave.
