Retail center coming to University Avenue

July 23, 2003

Investors have announced the upcoming construction of a new 7,800-square-foot retail center on University Avenue. The center, appropriately, called University and Main, is the first major component of a broader plan to connect Clarksville's historic downtown to Austin Peay.

The project is expected to cost $800,000 and could be completed in six months. Jeff Robinson, owner of the Blackhorse Brewery and a realtor who's worked closely on the project, says he expects the center to house a quick-copy center, a lunch-style restaurant and a coffee shop.

In an article appearing in The Leaf Chronicle, Robinson said he likens the development to Hillsboro Village in Nashville, which has "a nice mix of retail and residential." The Hillsboro area adjoins the campus of Vanderbilt University.

Cumberland Bank and Trust will build its main office in the area as well. The date for the groundbreaking has not been announced.
