Expansion into Gallatin – Sumner County
Nashville, Tenn. – On October 11, 2000, the Gallatin Planning Commission has rezoned and approved the site and development plan for Crye-Leike, Realtors to build a real estate branch office in Gallatin, Tenn., Sumner County. The site, approximately one acre, is located at 1184 Nashville Pike (Highway 31), west of the city.
The parcel includes a vacant house that was rezoned for office use. The property was purchased by Harold E. Crye, chief executive officer of Crye-Leike, in April 1999 for $185,000.
Crye plans to add a one-story 1,652 square foot expansion to the existing structure, making the project a total of 3,874 square feet of office space for Crye-Leike’s new Gallatin branch office. Crye’s investment in land and improvements will exceed $350,000.
Dale Bennett of GEDS, Inc. in Gallatin is serving as the principal engineer for the Crye-Leike project with Keith Rosenblum, president of Crye-Leike Commercial & Property Management of Brentwood, Tenn., serving as the developer.
“We are very enthusiastic about the growth in Sumner County. Our Hendersonville office continues to have record sales and is at full agent capacity,” said Tom Kimbrough, vice president and general manager of Crye-Leike of Nashville, Inc. “This new Crye-Leike Gallatin office will allow us to better serve our clients in the area.”
Adding Gallatin to Crye-Leike of Nashville’s list of branch offices will bring the total to 21 in eight counties in Middle Tennessee: Davidson, Maury, Montgomery, Robertson, Rutherford, Sumner, Wilson and Williamson counties.
Crye-Leike Commercial & Property Management is a division of Crye-Leike (www.crye-leike.com), the largest real estate firm in Tennessee and the Mid-South.
