Publix on Harding Road

The Tennessean has confirmed that developers are planning to build a Publix grocery store where the Belle Meade H.G. Hill store and other properties now stand. Construction, including demolition of the current buildings, is expected to start sometime in January.

This news is also part of a larger effort to upgrade the area around White Bridge Road and Harding Place through new roads, sidewalks and pedestrian trails. (I know discussions about these improvements have been somewhat controversial, but I am not aware of the current details.)

The Tennessean story reports that the H.G. Hill store on the site closed in July. (I missed that along the way.)

    I am extremely excited about Publix coming into our area and I'm equally excited that Costco is coming to Charlotte Ave. Both businesses excel at customer service and corporate responsibility.

    We are happy that a Publix is coming to the broader neighborhood. Great store! Also, it will be great to see such a prominant intersection get a face lift.
