Developer Scott Sohr lives in the greater Nashville, Tennessee area, where he has been an integral part of some major land development projects. The property acquisitions of Scott Sohr aren’t limited to the middle Tennessee area, however. The developer has properties throughout the Southeastern U.S.
Among these are two properties in Knoxville, a city in East Tennessee known for both industry and the popular University of Tennessee. Knoxville is in a beautiful part of the country, Scott Sohr points out, with close proximity to the Smoky Mountains. Scott Sohr says that the area provides convenient access to a range of shops, restaurants, and other amenities, making it a great place to live.
Scott Sohr and his partners most recently purchased property in the Farragut area just outside of Knoxville. As Scott Sohr explains, his firm acquired lots in a residential community called Cabot Ridge. The plans are to place homes on these lots within the next two years, says Scott Sohr. The subdivision is currently called Homes of Rockford Lane, which was originally planned as a full development. However, when the real estate market experienced troubles in 2008, development was halted with ten lots remaining.
Scott Sohr believes his firm can complete development of the final ten lots quickly, thanks to a partnership with McCamy Construction, a local company that overlaps designing and building to save time. McCamy Construction is recognized for beautifully designed houses, so Scott Sohr and his team are excited about the partnership.
According to Scott Sohr, the Homes of Rockford Lane will be similar in style to the adjacent Villas of Ridgepath Lane, but with smaller floor plans. Scott Sohr stresses that each floor plan will be over 2600 square feet with all of the luxuries homeowners expect in a Cabot Ridge home. The homes will feature stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, Scott Sohr describes, with open floor plans and hardwood floors.
The Knoxville real estate market has been hit by hard times like the rest of the nation, Scott Sohr reports, although lately building permit requests in the area have increased—a sign things are beginning to improve. In fact, says Scott Sohr, the first Cabot Ridge home completed and sold already with another completing recently. Starting prices for the homes begin at $350,000.
Scott Sohr is a Nashville-based developer with a breadth of experience in healthcare solutions and development.
