In Bristol, TN, developer Steve Johnson of Johnson Commercial Development, unhappy that city officials wanted to study whether or not a tax increment financing incentive was needed to help him redevelop a former Kmart site, dropped those plans and instead will sell the former Kmart property to U-Haul. The sale is expected to close in early 2020. Johnson sought a $1.7 million TIF from Bristol to help finance the $9 million project that would have new retail stores. He was displeased that a study to decide if the project could be completed without a TIF took more than three months. Johnson bought the Kmart site for $2.5 million; U-Haul will use it for indoor and outdoor self-storage, as well as truck rentals. Source: Bristol Herald Courier
