Boyle Snags Hotels for Cool Springs Sites

– Nashville Business Journal –

Boyle Investment Co. has been given the nod to get started on the next phase of its Meridian Cool Springs development, which is composed of 40 acres conveniently located off of Interstate 65 in Cool Springs.

The City of Franklin Planning Commission has approved the developer’s plans to build a Courtyard by Marriott and Residence Inn on part of the 40-acre site. The two hotels will contain 171,421 square feet of hotel space within 250 rooms. Construction will begin later this summer and will be completed next year. The project is a joint venture between Boyle and Chartwell Hospitality.

Also in the works is a 66,210-square-foot, three-story Class A office building, which is a joint venture between Boyle and Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. Construction is slated to begin this summer with delivery in the spring.

Boyle is also scheduled to start on a 15,283-square foot specialty retail building, a 50,000-square foot office building and a 19,200-square foot mixed-use building with retail on the ground floor and office above this summer.

Meridian will be anchored by the 175,000-square foot Community Health Systems Inc. headquarters, which is scheduled for completion in December.

Boyle is active in retail, office, and mixed-use developments throughout Middle Tennessee. The company recently bought The Crossings retail center in Nashville, and is also the developer for Berry Farms, a 600-acre mixed-use community at the Interstate 65/Goose Creek Bypass Interchange.
