The two-lot property of 1112 Belvidere Drive sold to builder Jason Bockman of Twin Team Properties after one day on the market in April, 2013. He has plans to demolish the home and build two in its place, which the neighborhood asserts is against the RS10 zoning designation fought for and obtained in 2005 by the residents of the College Park area. We have received conflicting answers both for and against our position from the zoning departments for Nashville and our councilman, Sean McGuire (who does support our position but is concerned about the conflicting reports as well). Some zoning officials say the builder can not do what he has planned, but that they can not stop a demo permit, they can only stop him when he tries to pull permits to build two homes. Other zoning officials say the 1112 property (on lots 16 and 17) are "non-conforming lots," platted out long before the 2005 rezoning, and therefore two homes can be built (one on each lot), covering not more than 40% of each lot, and up to 3 stories high.
