A Mexican restaurant, a potential challenger to the Crossings shopping district, and more homes could be coming to Spring Hill in the not too distant future. The Spring Hill Planning Commission saw multiple projects cross its desk during Monday night’s voting meeting, with some approved, and some just reviewed.

Here is the latest on development projects making their way through the city’s approval process.

Mexican Restaurant and AT&T store / 7,200 square feet retail and restaurant building

Civil Site Design Group has submitted a concept plan for a restaurant and retail building to be located at The Crossings shopping district, in between the Panera Bread and Cracker Barrel. The 7,200-square-foot building would contained a currently undisclosed Mexican restaurant, an AT&T store, and a third, unknown retail business sandwiched in the middle.

During the developer’s previous submission, city staff raised concerns about the buildings orientation, as the front of the businesses did not face Main Street, as required by the city’s design ordinances. Monday night’s meeting saw these concerns addressed.

As this project is only a concept plan, no vote was cast on the project Monday night.

Submitted by Anderson, Delk, Epps & Associates, Brandon Woods is planned housing development sandwiched between I-65 and Port Royal Road, just below Derryberry Lane North. The total development consists of 721 lots, with this being the first and second phases of development, consisting of 65 single family lots.

These first two phases of development span over an area of 24.18 acres, and have plans to include “several open spaces, a walking trail, and several detention ponds,” according to the submitted documents.

The Planning Commission approved the developer’s request Monday night for preliminary plat approval.

Submitted by Civil Site Design Group, this project would see the development of 46.85 acres of residential, commercial and restaurant development, comparable to the Crossings shopping district in size. The project is proposed to be located on the northeastern corner of Port Royal Road and Derryberry Lane, just south of Saturn Parkway.

Concept plan documents show ten separate retail buildings of varying sizes, for a combined size of 280,000 square feet. The largest building will come in at just over 42,000 square feet. For the retail buildings alone, the developer has included 1,122 parking spaces, for a combined total of 2,040 parking spaces for the whole development.

As this project is only a concept plan, no vote was cast on the project Monday night.

This phase will also include the construction of six and eight-foot wide gravel trails, with multiple benches alongside them.
