Southern Land has tweaked its plans for the southern edge of its McEwen development in Franklin. The new layout for Southside at McEwen comprises three retail buildings between the nearly completed Whole Foods store (far left in the image below) and the McEwen office building. The larger buildings will be 19,000 square feet each, the smaller restaurant building will be about 7,000 square feet. Southern Land's previous plans had called for a hotel and some residential units in that area.
“Sustainability is important to Vanderbilt University,” said VUMC’s Director of Facility Planning Cyril Stewart. “At One Hundred Oaks we saw the opportunity for a project that repurposed an existing building that had fallen into disuse to better serve our patients, create a high quality environment for our employees, and to continue to improve this great neighborhood,” he said.VUMC is now in the early stages of planning its second outpatient medical office development. The Cool Springs project could eventually reach 500,000 square feet in size and cost $200 million.
The store features an extensive selection of typically hand-crafted designs offered primarily in sterling silver and 14k gold, and in various sizes and gemstones. The CoolSprings Galleria location will be open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
