Williamson County: Projects to Watch For in 2016


Williamson County: Projects to Watch For in 2016

Williamson County is the fastest growing county in Tennessee and 17th in the Nation. With all this growth, it is not surprising that there is new development everywhere you turn. Out of all the new projects, here are the top ones guaranteed to change the face of the county, bringing new amenities, jobs and homes.


1. Harpeth Square Hotel:

Construction on this $87 million development is set to begin this summer. The property is made up of a 115-room boutique hotel and 155 luxury apartments located along the Harpeth in downtown Franklin. The property will also include 30,000 square feet of retail space and a large parking garage. The developers, Harpeth Associates LLC, hope to complete the project by late 2017 or early 2018.


2. First Tennessee Building Renovation:

The Franklin square’s First Tennessee Building is beginning its renovation, which will add street level restaurants, additional office space and the county’s first rooftop restaurant. Set to open in Summer 2017, the development will be able to accommodate 500 guests.


3. Hill Center Brentwood:

Opening October 2016, Hill Center Brentwood is a mixed-use development located at the intersection of Franklin Road and Maryland Way. Made up of a variety of shops, restaurants and office space, Hill Center will be the perfect destination for work and play. Strategically placed on Franklin Road, the property is directly adjacent to several other office parks, including Maryland Farms and the new development, CityPark.


4. Berry Farms:

Berry Farms is a 600-acre mixed-use development currently under construction. The project has been in the works for several years now and is going to be located near the intersection of Peytonsville Road and Lewisburg Pike, between Franklin and Spring Hill. The heart of the project is the Town Center. This area will bring 585,000 square feet of office space, 550,000 square feet of retail space and 650 residential units.


5. Ovation:

This nearly $1 billion mixed-use Cool Springs development is slated for one of the last sections of undeveloped land along the “Cool Springs corridor” at the corner of Carothers Parkway and McEwen Drive. The plan is to create 950 residential units, 480,000 square feet of retail space, two hotels and over a million square feet of retail space. The first phase, Uptown, is made up of 392-apartments aimed at young adults.


6. Stephens Valley:

The Stephens Valley development is in its very early stages and would be a two-decade plus project. Developer John Rochford is proposing a nearly $1 billion development surrounded by the Natchez Trace Parkway. The area would include nearly 1,500 custom homes, a boutique hotel, plus restaurant, retail and office space. Local residents are already protesting the project, arguing that it will greatly increase traffic in the area, though part of the plan calls for Snead Road to be expanded to four lanes.


7. Two Farms (Tiger Woods Golf Course):

Thompson’s Station’s 1,229 acres between West Harpeth Road and Coleman Road will become a mixed-use community that will be built around a golf course designed by Tiger Woods. In addition to the golf course, the $150 million development will include about 800 homes and a health center. Construction should begin this Spring, despite recent criticism from local residents.
