Real Estate Notes: Meridian Cool Springs prepped for restaurants

Boyle Investment Company has started construction on two restaurant buildings in its Meridian Cool Springs development in Williamson County.

Post sister publication The News reports Meridian Cool Springs already offers structures accommodating retail, restaurant, hospitality and offices. The future restaurants will represent the beginning of the next phases of development, which will include office and green space in the area, Boyle said in a news release.

No tenants for the restaurants have been announced.

One building will be 1,400 square feet and the other will be 4,700 square feet. Construction began at 900 Meridian Blvd. (at that street’s intersection with Carothers Boulevard) at the end of September and is expected to be complete by late spring 2024.

Boyle, which operates its offices at Meridian Cool Springs, also has undertaken mixed-use development at Berry Farms, Capitol View and McEwen Northside.

“What we’ve seen in the market is that people — restaurant and retail patrons, office workers and tenants — are seeking the same thing, and that’s community,” Mark Traylor, Boyle director of retail, said. “Whether you’re a guest at a hotel, a restaurant or a spa customer, or you come to work at Meridian every day, we’re creating places where people can have positive experiences.”

The group plans for the green space to include casual furniture, lighting and landscaping elements that invite people to gather day and night. The open space will allow for opportunities like live music, movies and other events according to Grant Kinnett, retail leasing lead at Boyle. Franklin’s Kiser Vogren Design is participating.

The main address of Meridian Cool Springs is 2000 Meridian Blvd.
