Goodall Homes has offered to donate 16 acres to Lebanon for a new city park that would be a public-private partnership.

Lebanon would contribute $1 million to develop the park on land at Cairo Bend Road and Highway 70, Mayor Bernie Ash said. The city has the money already appropriated, according to Ash.

Goodall Homes will begin site work on the park this winter, with hopes to open in the summer of 2020, according to the city.

Walking trails, a playground, open green space and nature areas are in the initial plans for the park. More amenities could be phased in and may include pavilions and bathrooms, according to the city.

The 5 story, 3.2 million sq. ft. "Project Sam" warehouse for Mt. Juliet (which is most likely an Amazon distribution center) could end up employing upwards of 2,000 people, not the 1,000 previously mentioned.  More details on the 80 acre site are to be discussed at Mt. Juliet's next City Commission Meeting on Oct. 28th, when the developers hope to get final approval.

Strawberry Alley Ale Works, Clarksville:
 

Glad to see bars and restaurants doing good up there.  Former Mayor Johnny Piper had a vision for that stretch of Legion Street (now Strawberry Alley).   Was a massive undertaking burying all of the overhead utilities but it turned out real nice.  Some of those businesses have/had rooms and coolers under the road.....making use of the old coal shutes from back in the day.

Now, will this serve as a Convention Center too?  Needs a decent hotel nearby and the 40 year old Roadway Inn won't suffice.  Clarksville's population is approaching 200,000 people.  It maybe too small before it's even built....

That's a nice little project, but too bad they can't wrap that parking garage with residential. But I guess the area is too compact.

This project could usher in a redevelopment of Second street and Riverside drive (which used to be the busiest intersection in the state)  .  I can imagine many possibilities for the nearby Two Rivers Mall too.

On a (somewhat) related note. I had to drive from Nashville to Knoxville a couple weeks ago and saw a tower crane at Lebanon's main exit (where the food court is). At first I thought that's where the AMZN warehouse was going then remembered it's going up in Mt. Juliet. So what is going up at that spot?

      In 1965, Karam was the designer of the Beirut City Center, a multi-use complex with an egg-shaped shell housing a cinema, surrounded by towers and at the time the largest shopping mall in the middle east. The outbreak of the civil war in Lebanon in 1975 left the structure damaged beyond repair. Most of the buildings were razed but there have been some efforts to rehabilitate the egg (also nicknamed ‘sabouneh’ or soap by locals) which has survived, and which now occupies an iconic place in the hearts of Lebanese nostalgic for the country’s prewar era.
