The growing popularity of Brentwood’s Mallory Park business park hit a new high recently with the news that Sonic Automotive Group is under contract to purchase land in the development.
According to officials for commercial real estate services firm Southeast Venture, Sonic Automotive Group has claimed 13.22 acres—which accounts for all remaining Highway 65 frontage in Phase II of Mallory Park—and plans to build a new BMW dealership on the land. This will be in addition to Sonic Automotive Group’s current BMW dealership located at 4040 Armory Oaks Drive in Nashville.
In August 2012, Sonic Automotive Group broke ground on a new 9,178-square-foot Porsche dealership and 32,010-square-foot Audi dealership at 1576 and 1580 Mallory Lane. The new Porsche of Nashville and Audi Nashville are located where Phase I of Mallory Park connects to Phase II.
Sonic Automotive Group’s most recent purchase marks the first purchase within Mallory Park’s Phase II. Infrastructure work for Phase II of began in September 2012, opening up about 35 additional acres for commercial development.
Mallory Park is historically dubbed the ‘Flagpole Property’ for a row of flagpoles that formerly festooned the property along its border with I-65.
“Sonic’s Automotive Group’s continued investment in this project represents the strength of the company’s commitment to this area. By having all of its dealerships in one location, the logistics of helping a potential buyer find his or her perfect car becomes much simpler,” said Wood Caldwell, principal for Southeast Venture, which is representing the landowner, Dickson-based Tennsco.
