FWBBC to be sold

The Nashville Business Journal is reporting that the Free Will Baptist Bible College (3606 West End Avenue) will sell its campus in Richland-West End to Monument Property, a locally owned residential real estate development company, in May 2007.
The nine-acre West End Avenue Campus will be divided and sold by Monument, according to a release announcing the sale. The company has agreed to talk with neighbors about plans before anything is final.

"There will, however, be individual parcels available almost immediately," said Monument owner Darren Cioffi in the release.

The company's Web site states that "a number of historic homes and many prime building lots on Richland Avenue and West End Avenue will be available."

I'm glad to hear that the company has agreed to talk with neighbors as details develop. This is a major change for the Richland-West End neighborhood. FWBBC President Matt Pinson had the following to say in the college's news release about the sale: “We are pleased with our understanding of the buyer’s intent to develop the site in a manner which is consistent with its residential and historic context.”
