Laurel Cove -  is one of the largest active residential projects in Middle Tennessee  at 1120 acres and will be on hold indefinitely after the bankrupt Lehman defaulted on its $121 million construction loan for the project.

"We want to assure the public that Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. has no ownership in the project," Philip Jones, president of Tentara Partners, says in a statement to the Nashville Business Journal. "We anticipate a four to five month complicated negotiating process with the Lehman Bankruptcy Trustee."
