It makes sense that the fastest growing county in Tennessee and nation-leader in job growth would have dozens of development deals going on.

It is hard to keep track of them all. But here we are going to give it a go. This post presents 7 ongoing or upcoming projects that will change the face of Williamson County. Especially now that winter is (fingers crossed) gone for good, construction is about to really ramp up.

So after reading this, when you wonder what is that going to be as you pass these places on your commutes and weekend excursions, you will know.

1. Harpeth Square Hotel

revised harpeth squareThis $87 million development includes a boutique hotel and luxury apartments smack dab on the Harpeth in downtown Franklin. The project will be on the mostly-idle first block of Franklin and include a 115-room four star hotel, 155 luxury apartments, about 30,000 square feet of retail space and (who doesn’t like the sound of this?) a 600-space parking garage open to the public.

The complex will sit on much of an entire square block, between First and Second Avenues and Main and Bridge Streets.

The developers, Harpeth Associates LLC hope to complete construction by the end of 2017 or early 2018. Of the 155 apartments, 75 will be two-bedroom and 14 will  be three-bedroom.

Approved in May of 2015, the project nearly did not pass. The Historic Zoning Commission originally voted it down, 3-4, concerned that its size and scope were not quite in line with the historic feel of downtown. However, revised plans to Harpeth Square changed some things in the way of the outside design look, such as a painted and recessed fourth story, but the scale and size remain the same. Its original plans  passed the BOMA unanimously before the HZC put on the brakes and forced  the developers to revise the plans a bit, but construction is set to begin this summer.

The new plans to Harpeth Square changed some things in the way of the outside design look, such as a painted and recessed fourth story, but the scale and size remained the same.
