An entity affiliated with Nashville-based Regent Homes — known for its Lenox Village development — will break ground Thursday on Burkitt Ridge, a large-scale mixed-use project in South Davidson County.

To be located not quite one mile east of the intersection of Burkitt and Nolensville roads, the development will offer 800 residential units — including townhomes and single-family homes — as well as restaurant and retail spaces, according to David McGowan, Regent Homes' president.

The first phase will include two 51-unit buildings and one eight-unit building, with a collective 220 residences, all one-bedroom and one-bedroom-flex-space. To carry a price tag of $32 million to $34 million, the buildings will offer elevator access for the units. McGowan will undertake the project via Burkitt Ridge Apartments LLC. Memphis-based Orion is providing financing.

McGowan said the company donated to Metro land for both a fire station site and an elementary school. In addition, the company will have installed a traffic light for Burkett Road and Westcott Lane, with Westcott to continue into Burkitt Ridge.

Relatedly, Regent Homes also developed the sites of Burkitt Place, Burkitt Village and Burkitt Springs. It also developed the aforementioned Lenox Village, which is located nearby off Nolensville Road.

"Burkitt Ridge Community is exceptionally well located in the South Davidson County/Nolensville area, minutes from Concord Road with direct access to Franklin and Brentwood," McGowan emailed the Post. "Burkitt Ridge is an 800-home 'surban' community that features a mix of urban-designed [buildings] in a suburban [setting]."
