What an ugly mess at the corner of Kingston Pike and Admiral Road. I can’t believe the developers got permission to absolutely ransack that corner intersection, cut down all those beautiful hardwoods, redbuds and dogwoods and just leave a mess. And for what: another strip shopping center that will be half empty? Please, enough of this.

I ask the Town of Farragut, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to please put a moratorium in place: no further spec building in the Town of Farragut unless you’ve got 75 percent or more committed tenants in place; otherwise, these are just going to join with the other half-empty retail areas around Town. Much rather have the trees.
