The Commons at Dexter Lake LLC has filed a $1.2 million construction loan to build a 10,400-square-foot retail center, dubbed Vieux Carré, at the southwest corner of Germantown Parkway and Dexter Road. Construction started this week.
The development team bought the land from John B. Maxwell Jr., trustee, for $334,541 and filed the construction loan through First Citizens National Bank. Commons at Dexter Lake LLC principal Nancy Waddell signed the trust deed.
The center will sit on a 9-acre parcel west of the Jason’s Deli off Dexter Road. The property is near the Commons at Dexter Lake retail center and the Reserve at Dexter Lake apartments.
A spokesman for the developer said the seven-bay center already has five leases signed. Tenants include a Belle Meade salon, financial planner Martin Hearn, a Crown Trophy store and a florist/gift shop.
Jeff Blackledge is architect for Vieux Carré. KT Construction LLC, whose partners are Scott Turnage and Riley Kail, will be the general contractor. Turnage said the company is “stripping the lot off right now and pushing hard for the first of the year” to complete the center.
“We’re going to go for kind of a hybrid French Quarter style – we’re going to be doing more of a Bourbon Street look,” Turnage said. “It’s going to be a strip center, but we’re going to try to give each space individuality, using depth and height offsets to try to give each space somewhat of a unique appearance.”
More retail space will be coming to the site soon.
