The Franklin Planning Commission met at 7 p.m. on Thursday night.
It unanimously approved a site plan for a more than 200,000 square foot building on a 22 acre plot.
The building, which is to be called Vanderbilt Health McEwen and be a general health center, will be 238,547 square feeet.
It will be built by Jeff Hooper, Barge Cauthen and Associates and will be located on the southwest corner of East McEwen Drive and Carothers Parkway.
In other news, the commission approved a development plan for a subdivision at 1126 Liberty Pike. The measure was contested by several citizens who live in the area.
Troy Wilholm, who lives nearby, said that the development will lower neighboring property values, because they are trying to build 5 houses on less than .1 acres of land each. The total area for the land is a little more than .55 acres.
Greg Gamble, speaking for the applicant, said that the property values of the homes, which will cost on average $363,000, was in line with local prices.
The measure passed.
