The TBC Executive Board was notified Feb. 14 that Franklin Land Associates will not be closing on the sale of the Baptist Center, according to Randy C. Davis, TBC executive director/treasurer.
Davis also received notification on Feb. 15 that Franklin Land Associates had withdrawn their request for a zoning change to the city of Brentwood that had been set for a vote on Feb. 25. Earlier this month, a group called “Preserve Brentwood” launched an effort opposing the building of a 900,000 square-foot development on the Baptist Center site.
