NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A new 45,000 sq. foot, $7.1 million dollar armory in Tullahoma will officially open next month, Maj. Gen. Max Haston, Tennessee’s Adjutant General announced on Monday. The ribbon cutting is scheduled for Aug. 4 at 10 a.m.

"We’re particularly proud of this new, state-of-the-art facility.” Haston said, “It brings us to 95 armories in 83 communities across Tennessee.”

The "Tullahoma Readiness Center" is located at 1402 East Carroll Street. It was designed for use by National Guard soldiers of the 30th Troop Command and 1175th Transportation Company.

The Dept. of Military said Tennessee firms were used throughout the planning and construction process, from the architects and engineers to the general contractor and commissioning agent.

The armory features a 2,900-square-foot maintenance training work bay, almost 9,700 square yards of military vehicle parking, and 6,500 square yards of private vehicle parking.
