Housing in Williamson County is truly hot. Often, new housing is a topic at city planning commission meetings and developers literally cannot keep up with demand.
David Logan, president of the Williamson County Association of REALTORS, has said that the only thing holding back the market is supply,”
The hottest spot right now is Nolensville, which has had a 156 percent increase in housing development over the past four years, added Logan. After that comes Spring Hill, which is still developing extremely quickly. Franklin and Brentwood are getting close to fully developed, but there are still subdivisions being built in those cities’ limits.
Here is a list of some of the newest or newsworthy subdivisions going up around the county.
1. Stephens Valley
This development is still in the early stages and local residents have been protesting the $1 billion development. But it gained approval at the County Planning Commission in the Spring and is now in the first stages of development. Recently they ran their plans for road work on Sneed Road by the Highway Commission.
The developer is John Rochford, of Rochford Realty and Construction,the the development is surrounded by the Natchez Trace Parkway. The 850-acre area, called Stephens Valley, would include some 1,400 custom homes, an 85- to- 100 room boutique hotel, room for a restaurant and office and retail space. Development would take place over two decades. Set in northern Williamson and southern Davidson counties, the commercial section would front Highway 100.
The plan has drawn criticism from citizens groups, who argue that the plan’s density is too much, and that it will cause a huge surge in traffic, especially along Sneed Road. Part of the plan calls for Rochford to build the road out to four lanes.
The County Planning Commission approved the concept plan at their May meeting.
