Spirit Airlines announced Thursday afternoon it would move its operations control center to Williamson County.
The company will make the move from Florida.
“We are proud that Spirit Airlines has chosen Williamson County as the new home for their operations control center,” Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson said. “We look forward to welcoming them to our community and doing all we can to support their mission-critical work.”
The project represents an investment of $11.3 million and will bring 345 jobs to Tennessee over the next five years. Spirit will relocate more than 240 positions to Tennessee and create 100 additional jobs in Williamson County.
Williamson Inc. officials said the deal only took a matter of weeks after Spirit Airlines came for a site visit in December. The move included work with the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development, Tennessee Valley Authority, Nashville International Airport and Williamson County local leaders.
Spirit Airlines is the first airline to make the county home.

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Over the past decade, the Nashville skyline has changed dramatically as more skyscrapers are added each year, which means more offices and more jobs.
On average, tenants are renting office space around 1,000 square feet at $38 per square foot. That’s $38,000 annually that companies are paying to work in the heart of Music City.
“In the last five to six years, the rent downtown has just exploded,” said Tad Wood, a broker for TenantBase, a company that places businesses in office spaces around Nashville.
Wood said the growth of business in the downtown district has grown significantly.
“Downtown now is so many different segments,” said Wood. “That’s where Amazon is coming, there’s the SoBro district, there’s Church Street, and they all have different flavors. As you go down to where Amazon is coming, you can see it on the horizon, so people are already signing up and getting in line to be in these spaces that won’t be online for another year to year and a half.”
Nashville’s growth is impossible to deny, and experts say it’s just starting.
“I think we’ve got a long growth period in front of us,” said Wood. “These people that have come in, the money that’s come in from out of town, didn’t make a mistake picking here. We’ve got the housing, we’re growing for the future and building all the inventory. It will get filled up.”

Whatever you do, don’t call the collection of six homes along the mile-long driveway on Goshentown Road in Hendersonville a commune. It’s more accurate to say it’s a friends’ compound. Or call it a private, gated subdivision.
Six couples, some of them friends since childhood, moved into their homes beginning last October. More than a year earlier, they purchased 32 acres of farmland and subdivided it into lots of 5 or 6 acres where each couple built their own, privately owned house.
“We’re a group of people who’ve always dreamed of the same thing, the idea of building a community on land where you have your own space off the beaten path,” said Kindle Hughes.
“Each home is their own, and we have built-in friends,” she said.
