Developers Boyle and Crews plan 180-home project in Collierville

Two well-known local developers are teaming up to bring 180 new homes to Collierville.

A joint venture of Boyle Investment Co. and Crews Realty recently submitted an outline plan for the large neighborhood to the Collierville Planning Commission. The location — just north of Bailey Station Elementary and another recently proposed project — was a no-brainer, Boyle’s Gary Thompson said.

“[Collierville] is one of the hottest places in our metro area,” Thompson said.

To fit the 180 homes onto the 81 acres, the developers are requesting permission to use smaller lots — some as small as narrow as 50 feet wide — than Collierville allows by right. Thompson said this would go unnoticed from the neighborhood’s exterior because he and his partners plan to leave in place many of the property’s large trees and use 100-foot-wide lots on the periphery of the property.

The project is “not anticipated to have any significant impact to the operations of the adjacent roadway network,” a traffic study performed by Kimley-Horn & Associates Inc. reported.
