Mixed-Use Communities on the Rise South of Nashville
Mixed-use communities are becoming more and more popular, especially in the highly desirable area we serve, just south of Nashville. Mixed-use communities are developments that combine residential, commercial, and industrial spaces so residents can live, work and play without ever leaving the community. The Nashville area is one of the fastest growing in the country, so there is a growing need for places that offer a little bit of everything in one convenient space. Here are two examples we love:
Opened in 2003 in Franklin, WestHaven focuses on livability. It combines beautiful homes and landscaping with convenient shopping and amenities, so residents never have to go far for groceries, appointments or even schools. Large front porches, sidewalks, walkways and parks foster connections between neighbors, and frequent social events hosted within the community create a vibrant community spirit. WestHaven offers new homes, custom homes and previously owned homes to accommodate any homebuyer’s needs.
Also located in Franklin, Berry Farms is similar in concept to WestHaven, except with an additional 3 million square feet of office space, as well as land parcel opportunities. Berry Farms is a bit more spread out. It’s comprised of 600 acres with smaller residential neighborhoods. There are also plenty of retail shops, restaurants, office parks and other commercial spaces. Berry Farms has multiple social events each month including festivals, farmer’s markets and more. The master plan for Berry Farms is still being developed but will include an expanded town center and more residential units, apartments and office space.
These are plans currently being developed in the Nashville area…..
McEwen Northside in Cool Springs
Construction is underway for the $120 million, 45-acre first phase of McEwen Northside, which will bring apartments, offices, a hotel, restaurants, retail spaces and green spaces to Cool Springs. Apartment living will be upscale, with 10-foot ceilings, designer kitchens and bathrooms, elevator access, a fitness center and spa, resort pool and resident club.
Ovation is a mixed-use development in Cool Springs that will have similar features to McEwen Northside. Construction will begin sometime in the summer of 2017. This space is meant to be a big slice of a small-town city, both chic and comfortable.
Nolensville Market Square
A new space is coming to downtown Nolensville! This will be a place where residents can work, shop, dine and relax. The new development will have seven new buildings of residential condos, office and retail space. Keeping in step with the historic flair of downtown, the new space will be pedestrian-friendly. Additionally, it will feature state-of-the-art amenities to enhance Nolensville’s current downtown area. The goal of the development is to bring something new and dynamic, with a nod to the history of Nolensville.
Mixed-use communities provide convenient living in a friendly atmosphere. As the Nashville area continues to grow, we expect to see more and more of these communities being developed, and are excited to show customers all they offer.
