LATEST NEWS ON PROPERTY SALE
In August 2020, the YMCA of Middle Tennessee announced its future plans to sell the Maryland Farms YMCA property as part of a broader “One Brentwood” capital reinvestment strategy for the local community. The Y has reached an agreement to eventually sell the 17-acre property to Highwoods Properties, a North Carolina-based real estate investment trust. The Y and Highwoods expect the property to change hands in 2023.
Facility to remain open until expansion completed
The Maryland Farms Y remains open and we encourage members to visit as they normally would. Per the Y’s agreement with Highwoods, the Maryland Farms Y will remain open until construction on the Brentwood Family YMCA is scheduled to be completed.
Use of sales proceeds
Proceeds from the sale of the Maryland Farms property will be used toward a major renovation and expansion of the Brentwood Family YMCA on Concord Road.
Future of Maryland Farms Tennis Center
The renovation at Concord Road does not include a tennis operation. Unfortunately, it's just not financially feasible for the Y to continue offering tennis. We know it's hard to hear, though, and acknowledge that the tennis program has helped many kids and adults build skills and community in the 20-plus years we've been running it.
While the Maryland Farms Y remains open and operating as usual we're committed to maintaining tennis programming to the fullest extent possible based on tennis staff availability and retention.
Since announcing the eventual sale of the Maryland Farms Y property in August 2020, a group of tennis stakeholders has formed to look into alternative options for a tennis presence in Williamson County. This group has secured a piece of land in Williamson County and continues to explore this option to date.
We're committed to supporting this tennis stakeholder group’s efforts through this transition, and we're continuing to share data, resources, and operational insight with them as solutions are explored.
Impact on other programming
The Y remains committed to serving the Brentwood community, including through programs such as After Breast Cancer, Full Circle and Williamson County Y-CAP. The After Breast Cancer program will continue to operate at the Maryland Farms Y. When the facility is sold and ceases operations, the ABC program will be transferred to the Brentwood Y on Concord Road.
