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.








3. Ovation

Ovation Cool SpringsOvation is a nearly $1 billion mixed-use development in Cool Springs. Nestled in at the corner of Carothers Parkway and McEwen Drive, it is one of the last pieces of undeveloped land along the so-called Cool Springs corridor. That is, the land along I-65 between Carothers Parkway and Mallory Lane, for the most part, but more narrowly just between Carothers and I-65.

Ovation’s plan envisions 950 residential units, 480,000 square feet of retail space, 1.4 million square feet of “top grade Class A” office space, and two hotels with a combined 450 rooms.

In essence it aims to create an urban environment to live, work and play in within the suburban Cool Springs.

The first phase of construction is underway, with the 392-apartment Uptown at ovation complex, aimed at young professionals.

There are a slew of developers coming in, they include: Highwoods Properties [office] (Raleigh, N.C.); Thomas Enterprises [retail] (Atlanta); Bristol Development Group [multifamily] (Franklin); SouthStar LLC (Franklin). Although SouthStar started the ball rolling it has recently been selling off its interests- basically saying the size and scope of the development grew beyond its grasp.

Two confirmed tenants include Pinstripes, which signed a 15-year lease, and Kinnucan’s, a specialty outfitter based in Alabama.

Developers are working on cementing construction loans and full-scale building could begin this summer.
