Murfreesboro Construction

16 posts in this topic

Does anyone know about these projects? I found it on Bid Clerk

(1) Description: Project Documents (0):

Site work and new construction for a mixed-use center in Murfreesboro. Plans call for the construction of a luxury hotel, along with a 75,000-square-foot conference center that will house a lobby area, meeting rooms and a multi-purpose room.

A firm construction schedule will be established pending approvals. Interested parties may contact the architect

(2) Addition to a museum in Murfreesboro. Design plans call for the construction of a 7,000-square-foot expansion on the second floor of an existing, 18,000-square-foot museum to contain additional exhibition space.

Construction is expected to begin in the fall of 2006. No inquiries are requested at this time.

Clark's Cheesesteak Factory will open a new location next to Mellow Mushroom as well as a new stand alone Starbucks. The paper has made an error though, this will be the fourth Starbucks location. The third will open in January where the old Dairy Queen used to be on Old Fort Parkway.

I would expect a Starbucks at the Avenue as well, but it might be too close to the mall location.

I dont think Starbucks knows what too close means. I would expect the mall location and former dairy queen to coexist....and some of the other Avenues have Starbucks standing alone right beside the ones in the bookstores.

If you go to New York, Boston, or Chicago, there is literally one on every corner. I was in Chicago last month and there were 9 Starbucks within two blocks of my hotel. Of course, we don't have near the density that they do.

That makes sense because the Starbucks coffee stands in bookstores are rarely (if ever) owned and run by Starbucks. Those bookstores just hire their own employees to prepare drinks made with Starbucks coffee. What does truly surprise me though is that they're putting in a Starbucks in the old DQ location. It seems strange to me that they would do that when there are other parts of town that would seem like a better fit for a new Starbucks. They need one near MTSU badly in my opinion, and I think they'd do well to put one there.

So they're not closing the one by Kinko's? I assumed they were moving from that location to the Dairy Queen.

Perhaps they are going to close the other location, that could explain why the Post called the Rutherford location the third Murf location instead of the fourth. They obviously do overlap that much in lots of places though.

They won't be closing the location at Stones River Mall. It's the busiest one but in dire need of a makeover. It's now under new management so you should expect to see a much needed update. The reason they are turning the Dairy Queen into one is because it provides more space and a drive through. It will also have a fireplace, group tables, and computer hookups. All Starbuck's provide a wireless network to T-Mobile as well.

Golden Eagle Monglian Stir-Fry Restaurant will open in April next to The Chop House. Cumberland Bank will also open three branches in Murfreesboro over the next 2 years.

Weston Park is a new retail and residential development close to the Three Rivers project. The website below shows renderings of what it will look like when completed. When these two projects are completed residents will have two direct accesses to I-24 and SR-840 because of the new southwest loop and New Salem interchange with I-24.
