What is the law about how far an establishment that sells liquor has to be from a church? I heard today that one thing that might be holding up this shopping center is that there's a church across the street from where Publix is supposed to go. I do know that this particular church (Mormon) is bursting at the seams and would gladly sell their property to build a new facility somewhere else if it comes to that. The person who told me this seemed to know what he was talking about so I was wondering if it's plausible.

I don't think this is the hold up...it depends on the local municipality....normally codified as 500 ft. Proximity to the LDS church would have been a known item prior to selling Publix on the spot. I wouldn't believe that the developers would purchase the LDS property to further their build.

Are we sure it's less than 500 ft between the church and Publix?

Perhaps so....pretty close...but this wouldn't affect the whole of the development...I would think.

Yeah I'm not sure what the distance is, and that new wine and cheese store downtown is surely closer to First Baptist than Publix will be to the LDS church. The person I talked to seemed to know what he was talking about, though. Maybe he was saying it because he knows the LDS church is going to be very interested in selling their property in the very near future and assumed this was the reason. In one of the renderings, the back of the Publix store was almost directly across the street from the LDS church so it might be too close, I don't know.

I'm sure the developers could've have flip flopped the two anchor tenants had this been this issue...at least one would hope it would not progress as far without considering Publix's alcohol sales.

I don't believe this rumor is accurate. The issues for hurdles and delays have been environmental, TVA, etc.

I don't believe there is any reliable information on this page.....it contradicts the total square footage; as well, stating its available Summer 2015. This website is obviously not maintained.

However, the most reliable information I saw recently was that the property was Off Market...which indicates that it is fully leased. The most recent renderings that were pulled from the East TN developer indicated such with actual tenants being presented in those renderings.

So, basically to sum up...I wouldn't rely upon any information from commercialsearch.com or loopnet.com for that matter....these websites are much like those websites who present the deal of the day and then remain promoting that deal for years to come no matter how far beyond the scope of that particular sale.

Some public notices from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation have been placed at this property inviting the public to make comments through Nov 22 regarding the environmental impact this development will have on the area's wetlands. One of the signs says this development will "impact 2.70 acres of exceptional Tennessee wetlands and 0.56 acres of non-exceptional Tennessee wetlands," whatever that means. The hearing is scheduled for Thursday December 3. The applicant is Browning Development.

I hope this will be just a formality and that dirt can start moving soon after the hearing.
