The Arlington Planning Commission has unanimously approved an amendment for several changes to the $90 million mixed-use Providence Place project on the south side of Milton Wilson Boulevard near Hall Creek Apartments.
The original plans for the 45-acre project owned and developed by The Bank of Bartlett were approved in April 2019. The concept included commercial, office, hospitality and mixed-use buildings with retail on the ground floor and residential above those outlets.
The new additions include 39 townhomes, 25 single-family detached lots and 154 apartments, 60 of those age-restricted units. That results in the commercial space decreasing from 57,000 square feet to 33,000 square feet partly due to market changes since the initial plans were approved two years ago.
In a recent interview with Tonia Howell, Executive Director of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, Howell shared
“Providence Place is a good development for Arlington, and these improvements make it even better. With the recent announcement from Baptist Memorial Healthcare regarding their freestanding emergency room and this planned development, Arlington continues to demonstrate our strength in economic development. I have always said ‘Arlington is Shelby County’s best kept secret…’ well, the secret is out. Arlington is a great place to invest in your business.”
