Nuclear Development was set to purchase the property for over $110 million.

The future of the plant has been in question for decades.

The final date to close on the sale has passed, and TVA informed Nuclear Development late Thursday that the deal was off. An extension was granted by TVA but Nuclear Development officials stated on Friday that TVA would not grant another.

Nuclear Development did not complete the necessary NRC license transfer prior to the closing date as required by the Atomic Energy Act………
