The developers of the 260-acre parcel of undeveloped property in Hendersonville, Tennessee, approached Lose & Associates, Inc. in 2003 to help create their vision of the largest project in the history of the city. Their vision included a 12-year phased plan to include a major lifestyle center, outparcels, offices and offices with residential above, retail, commercial and both multi-family and single-family homes.
The re-zoning and P.U.D. approval process with the City of Hendersonville was unique in that no GSC P.U.D. that included residential has ever been presented and approved. No project of this magnitude had been presented heretofore to span a period of 12 years. Provisions were created to address specific designs and alterations as each parcel was developed, without having to approve the entire plan a the outset. This was accomplished through close communication with the city’s planning director and staff. A set of complete design standards was prepared as part of the submittal packages. The master plan included provisions for a future light rail station, a new city library, a new city park and connections to Veterans Park. Developers of the lifestyle center, Continental Properties of Columbus, Ohio, began construction in late 2006.
Working closely with our civil engineering division, our traffic planning consultants developed a long-term plan of new and expanded streets in and around the development along with an improved exit ramp from Vietnam Veterans Boulevard for the city. Lose & Associates, Inc. provided bydrological, geotechnical and archaeological reports through subconsultants and grading, stormwater and erosion, utility (including sewer, water, electrical, communications and cable), detention and vertical and horizontal alignment of roads in-house. Our staff
also conductied negotiations with CSX for a railroad crossing. Consultation with Hendersonville’s planners directed several of the roadway alignments to connect with planned new roadway improvements by the City.
