Boutique Hotel, Condos, Retail-Office Space Downtown
WGNS Radio, February 22, 2018The Murfreesboro City Council met Thursday night (2/22/2018), and it appears that the growing historic district is on the way to getting luxury downtown condos, a boutique hotel along with retail and office space. The council is favoring a proposal by Murfreesboro Development Group, LLC, but the agreement is not finalized until approval is not secured with all facets of the plan. The three principals of the group are Nick and Bob Patel along with Mike Chaudhary. Originally the plans called for three buildings that would be 4 to 6 stories tall, plus the historic almost 200-year old church structure, but Patel indicated that initial demand for space is causing them to change to 8 stories, if needed. He noted that of the approximate 200,000 square feet, 58,000 square feet would be devoted to 55 residential units. The principal in the Murfreesboro Investment Group told WGNS that the hotel size had also been increased from the originally planned 80 rooms to now being 100. The complex would have 456 parking spaces partially below ground level as well as at ground level. In addition, there would be 48 street parking spaces around the complex. The entire development will be located on an entire square block of prime downtown real estate that is bordered by East College, North Church, East Lytle and North Spring Streets. Construction is expected to begin after preliminary steps have been approved. That means approximately 18-months before construction begins. NewsRadio WGNS will keep you informed along the way.
