Nashville Real Estate Briefs: Real estate dispute leads to settlement

Washington Redskins defensive tackle and former Titans player Albert Haynesworth has plenty of people claiming he owes them money, from an ex-wife to an East Tennessee bank to, in the latest dispute, a Nashville engineering firm.
Nashville lawyer David Anthony settled two small-claims lawsuits last week against Haynesworth in Davidson County Circuit Court over about $50,000 in unpaid engineering expenses for subdivisions that were never built.

Roy Dale of Dale & Associates, the plaintiff, said the dispute involved surveying and engineering costs for a proposed townhome development in Madison called Crestview and a project called Old Hickory Corner, a mixed-use residential and retail project that was supposed to be built on 14 acres at Robinson Road and Industrial Drive in Old Hickory.

Haynesworth's attorneys could not be reached for comment.

The football star got a $21 million bonus in April on a $100 million contract.

Building permits trickle in

Summit Medical Center off Old Hickory Boulevard and Central Pike in Nashville is getting a 4,100-square-foot addition to the emergency room and interior renovations by Batten & Shaw Inc.

CJ Advertising, a marketing firm for personal injury lawyers, is rehabbing a building at 300 10th Ave. S. in Nashville for $1.3 million. The firm is currently located nearby in Cummins Station. DWC Construction will do the work.

The old Piedmont Natural Gas Co. building on Mainstream Drive is getting a $628,280 interior rehab by Hardcastle Construction Co. to make a new home for the state Department of General Services, which handles procurement and equipment management for state government. The department is consolidating locations and will move under one roof, with some employees moving in as early as September.

The Baker Donelson law firm offices at 211 Commerce St. downtown will get a $500,000 rehab from the Carter Group LLC.
