While driving along Columbia Avenue in Franklin, it is hard to miss the several construction sites.

We took a closer look and found out what is going on.




Affordable Housing on Granbury

image (3)On an entire block, a little bit north of the library, SouthLand Construction is building 65 units of 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedroom homes. Spearheaded by the Franklin Housing Authority (FHA), the just-off-Columbia Ave construction site should be almost complete near the end of the summer. It is part of the FHA’s ongoing project to redevelop affordable housing. The Reddick Senior Residence, adjacent to the new site, was one of its first updated projects.

The streets bounding the site are: Strahl, Reddick, Carter and Granbury.
