SOUTH PITTSBURG, Tenn. — A “live, work and play community” will sprout from 40 acres at Interstate 24’s Exit 152 after the property was rezoned Tuesday night, officials said.
Stoneclift Village developer Jay Jenkins says the project planned for the South Pittsburg side of the exit will be a boon for the town and neighboring Kimball, Tenn.
“The plan is to develop it in phases and the first phase will emphasize hotels, restaurants, retail shops, possibly some recreational facilities,” Mr. Jenkins said.
Later phases of Stoneclift Village could include residential housing, professional offices and, once most of the project is compete, an assisted living center, he said.
Louise Wilkey Powell owns Heart Realty in Kimball and is overseeing marketing of the development. The site’s location will be a big draw for business because “it’s very visible from the interstate,” Mrs. Powell said.
