$60M apartment project eyed for Franklin

A Houston-based company is hoping to develop a $60 million 406-unit apartment complex on six acres in Franklin, The Tennessean reports.

Meeks + Partners has the Nichol Mill Lane site under contract, according to the morning daily. The four-story building would include a 674-space parking deck and units renting in a range from about $900 to $2,500 a month, the paper reports.

City of Franklin approval will be needed.

Of note, Meeks + Partners owns Rutledge Hill property that has been linked to a proposed project called City Lights. The company, led by Don Meeks (pictured), was the architect for The Manning luxury condo mid-rise, which was planned for Woodmont Boulevard in the mid-2000s but failed to materialize.

Meeks + Partners also was to have served as the architect for what is now 909 Flats, which Lincoln Property Co. and MetLife Inc. are co-developing on a Hope Gardens site fronting Rosa Parks Boulevard in North Nashville. Niles Bolton Associates replaced Meeks as the architect for the project.
