SEVIER CO – Trey Miller, MRED and Brian Tapp, CCIM of NAI Knoxville recently announced the sale of Belle Island Village in Pigeon Forge, TN to LeConte Properties LLC. NAI Knoxville partnered with David F. DeVaney, SIOR, CCIM, and President of NAI Charter in Chattanooga, TN.
Belle Island Village is a 280,000 square foot festival themed retail development that sits on 18.06 acres in between the Pigeon Forge Parkway and Teaster Lane. Belle Island Village sold for $10,500,000 on November 18th, 2011 and NAI Knoxville represented the seller, Regions Bank. Belle Island is approximately 70% complete and is slated for specialty retail shops, a range of restaurants and entertainment venues.
Pigeon Forge is known for its entertainment and attractions which include, Dollywood, Wonder Works, Dixie Stampede and outlet malls.
Brian and Trey were recently hired to market Riverwalk, LLC and Pigeon Falls, LLC which is the remaining 138 acres of undeveloped land that neighbors Belle Island Village and the Pigeon Forge Events Center. This property is strategically located next to the new LeConte Events Center and future Jake Thomas Boulevard Extension which will connect the Parkway with the entrance to Dollywood.
