Spectrum | Emery officials announced today the completion of the exterior framing of the under-construction One Franklin Park in Cool Springs and that the office building will be finished by Sept. 1, 2014.
The Franklin-based development company said in a release it is targeting an Oct. 1, 2014, move-in date for tenants. In addition, Spectrum | Emery released updated renderings (see below).
“This is a great day for our project team, Franklin Park and Cool Springs,” David Wells, vice president of Spectrum | Emery, said in the release. “With One Franklin Park topped off, prospective tenants can now see why this will be the iconic building in our market with unparalleled access and visibility from I-65.”
One Franklin Park, ground for which was broken in August 2012, will represent Cool Springs’ first Class-A office building of 10 stories. The structure, to include 272,720 square feet, will be part of a 71-acre mixed-use corporate complex that will feature five Class A office towers, a 350-unit multi-family apartment community and more than 12 acres of green space.

The owners of CoolSprings Galleria are prepping for an update to the facility. The Tennessean's Kevin Walters reports that on Thursday CBL Associates Properties, Inc., will present to the Franklin Planning Commission details of its planned rehabbing of mall anchor Sears, a move that would represent the first phase of a updating that eventuallywill increase the retail space by more than 70,000 square feet. As Walter reports, CBL this past summer purchased the 116,000-square-foot space home to Sears store with plans to convert the space into new shops. However, Franklin Planning Department records show the company also might resume 2008 plans — scrapped after the recession — to construct free-standing shops adjacent to the mall, according to the morning daily.
