The Hamilton Springs development began its next chapter Wednesday as officials broke ground on the site’s future commercial center.

“The commercial aspect of this development is another step toward our ultimate vision of providing a community where residents can live, work and shop in a traditionally designed neighborhood while also having the option to utilize transit to access the surrounding region,” said Jack Bell, President of Horn Springs Development, Inc.

The 13,000-square-foot building, owned by Bell and his brother, Rick, will be 60 percent occupied upon completion, with businesses including an expanded Body Kneads, a full-service medical spa owned by Heather Hull and Julie Miller Wilson, will expand to include fitness and nutrition and a healthy deli.

A partnership with Karen Boynton of Serenite’ Fitness will offer personal training and group fitness classes. The move is expected to be complete in early summer, 2017.

Lose & Associates designed the building, which will be located on the east side of Hamilton Station Blvd. Jack W. Bell Builders, Inc. is the contractor.

“Jack and I grew up in this part of the city and we continually strive to make Hamilton Springs an asset for everyone,” said Rick Bell, VP of Horn Springs Development and Lebanon Ward 6 councilor. “This building is another step toward a walkable community for the residents of Hamilton Springs and everyone who lives around it.” 

The Lebanon City Council recently approved a 15-acre park for the development, while the Music City Star train station is also in the planning phase. The Traditions at Hamilton Springs, a 55 and older community, will break ground at a later date.

Hamilton Springs is the first community in Middle Tennessee that has planned, designed and constructed a traditional neighborhood “village” with residences and businesses centered on a train station.
