Engineering design and civil engineering in Nashville, TN & Nolensville, TN

While its name suggests otherwise, most of the new developments coming to Haley Industrial Drive in Nolensville, TN aren’t industrial.

Instead, one of the few areas zoned for industrial use in Nolensville contains offices, a day care and a church, to name a few. And, the area is developing rapidly.

Buist Richardson, principal of Avison Young, sold the last of four parcels at the business park in May.

“We sold one around 2015, then sold the other three in a short time span of about a year,” said Richardson. “And you could kind of see the momentum starting to build as far as Nolensville, TN is concerned.”

What he found interesting is that the new owners of the parcels are leaning toward more commercial uses instead of industrial.

Why? The growing number of families moving to Nolensville means a greater demand for services such as day cares and recreation, he said.

Property on Haley Industrial Drive isn’t as expensive as those along Nolensville Road, the main artery through the town.

“It’s so expensive on Nolensville Road now, people are looking for alternative sites,” Richardson said.

One of the parcels, sold to Ryan and Shanon Taylor in May for $365,000, will house a 30,000-square-foot indoor soccer complex.

Nolensville Planning Commission approved the development’s site plan in February.

Another parcel is now the site of Ms. Nichole’s Child Care.

In August, Nashville, TN-based Thomas Smith Properties LLC announced plans to build a $4 million, two-building office complex on Haley Industrial Drive, creating 24,000 square feet of Class A office space.

At least two tenants have signed leases to move into the complex once the first phase is completed: Brentwood-based 4UMD, a medical diagnostics company, and Human Capital Professionals.

Real estate broker Kris Blanton owns three pieces of property in Nolensville, TN and said the transition from industrial to commercial tenants is pronounced.

“There’s just a lot of different businesses coming down there. There’s an assisted care home that’s going in,” Blanton said.

Just one property she owns, which houses Saunders Electric, is industrial.

Blanton said she owns a 15-acre parcel in Nolensville, TN that a developer is considering to purchase for a medical building.

“We’re seeing more and more retail (and commercial) uses down there because the demand is there,” Blanton said.
