LEBANON, Tenn. (WKRN) — A new residential development will be breaking ground in Lebanon, Tennessee at the end of the month.

Burkentine Real Estate Group announced it plans to build a rental townhome community called Legends.

The company purchased just over 17 acres of land on Tater Peeler Road with its plans to build 116-units now approved.

“The Nashville area is a new market for us,” said owner Mike Burkentine, in a news release. “Lebanon in particular has been an area that has seen steady growth.”

According to the city’s Economic Development department, Lebanon has more than 40,000 residents and a 58,000 daytime population, making it the largest city in Wilson County.

Like much of Middle Tennessee, its population continues to increase.

“The city has done a good job attracting new business and investing in the infrastructure
to support it,” said Burkentine.

The group hopes to break ground by the end of May.
