COOKEVILLE – January’s biggest real estate deal has cleared the way for a new FedEx Ground Package facility to join the growth surrounding Cookeville’s newest interstate interchange at Tennessee Avenue.
The 48.56 acres at 4676 Tennessee Avenue brought $2.4 million and was purchased by WESTCO SRB LLC and WESTCO SRB II LLC, and all but one of the residential buildings on the property have been removed.
