Regent Homes, one of Middle Tennessee’s largest locally-owned builders and developers, recently broke ground on its new Burkitt Ridge community located in the South Nashville/Nolensville area of Davidson County, Tennessee.
Burkitt Ridge will be similar to Regent’s highly successful Lenox Village community on south Nolensville Rd. in Nashville.
“Burkitt Ridge will accommodate people in all stages of life,” says Regent Homes owner/president David McGowan, “but we are especially focused on the influx of millennials that are now calling Nashville home. There is definitely a shortage of work-force housing in our area due to all the new businesses moving to town, and we are aiming to accommodate those buyers. Burkitt Ridge will offer them maintenance-free living and homes priced for their lifestyles.”
Burkitt Ridge will offer a mix of 800 condos, townhomes, live/work homes, and single-family homes with prices targeted in the mid $200,000s to the high $300,000s. In the maintenance-free community, all yard and grounds will be maintained by the Homeowners Association so that owners can enjoy more leisure time enjoying the community’s outdoor pavilions, picnic areas, fenced dog park and retail space. Burkitt Ridge will also feature extra-wide sidewalks and decorative street lights and signs.
In addition to the residences, Burkitt Ridge will house retail and office space for businesses such as restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, salons, insurance agents, etc. Regent has also offered the City of Nashville a site for a new fire station.
“Much like Lenox Village, Burkitt Ridge will be a walkable neighborhood where residents can shop, live and be entertained without ever getting into their cars. We are really focusing on surban living – where you have the feel and safety of suburban living with all the amenities of an urban area,” says McGowan.
Burkitt Ridge is located off of Burkitt Rd. near its intersection with south Nolensville Rd. To help alleviate any potential traffic issues, Regent is planning a traffic light at the entrance.
The design team for the community includes architects Smith Gee and Associates and land planners Epps, Anderson, Delk & Associates. Site work is being conducted by Covenant Contractors, and development financing is being provided by Reliant Bank.
