Site plan approved for auto manufacturer’s 102,000 SF addition

The site plan for a proposed 102,000-square-foot addition to the Comprehensive Logistics building was approved by the Spring Hill Municipal Planning Commission on Monday.
At the commission’s March 28 work session, NorthPoint Development project manager R.J. Agee said the expansion of the facility would accommodate a second auto parts manufacturer coming to Spring Hill. A two-shift operation, the new light manufacturer would include 100 employees per shift.
Although the discussion at Monday’s voting meeting was limited regarding the building addition, Commissioner Charlie Schoenbrodt asked about the planned improvements to Beechcroft Road, where Comprehensive Logistics is located.
According to City Planner Dara Sanders, when the plan for Comprehensive Logistics was first approved in 2014, it included conditions related to street improvements for Beechcroft.
In addition to widening to three lanes with curb and gutter improvements, the plan for Beechcroft also includes the construction of a grade-separated railroad crossing – all as a result of a $1.4 million State Industrial Access grant awarded to NorthPoint Development.
In response to Schoenbrodt’s query on the status of the project, Infrastructure Director Dan Allen responded that it is moving through the right-of-way acquisition phase and construction will follow. Allen added no tracts have been closed on to his knowledge.
“As you’re aware from Duplex, we don’t estimate the timelines,” he said. “We just work very diligently and follow the process as quickly as possible.”
Having received site plan approval for the addition to Comprehensive Logistics, Agee told the planning commission they were prepared to begin work in mid-May and are expecting a six-month buildout.
