Virginia Springs Phase II

Construction has begun on Virginia Springs Phase II, located on Virginia Way and Granny White Pike in Brentwood. The Class A office building will be about 111,000 square feet and is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2020, according to Cory Lombardo, marketing coordinator for Highwoods Properties, the building manager for the project.

Hyatt House and Staybridge Suites

Construction is wrapping up on two hotels along Mallory Lane near Spring Creek Drive in Franklin. Hyatt House—a 125-room hotel offering traditional hotel rooms as well as suites with kitchens for extended stays—is accepting reservations beginning Jan. 4. Staybridge Suites is also under construction directly next door; however, a opening date has not yet been announced.


Brentwood police headquarters

The city of Brentwood is building a new police headquarters on Heritage Way near the Williamson County Indoor Sports Complex. The $29 million, 56,000-square-foot building is expected to be complete in early 2021, according to the city. The new headquarters will include an indoor firearms range, an ambulance bay, a community room, an evidence lab, a courtroom and a processing center.

Carothers Crossing West

Groundwork has begun on Carothers Crossing West, a mixed-use center located at the northeast corner of Liberty Pike near Carothers Parkway in Franklin. The 20-acre center, developed by SouthStar, is slated to feature 328 units of multifamily housing, office and retail space and nearly 500 parking spaces. The office and retail spaces are expected to open in late 2020 or early 2021, according to SouthStar. Tenants for Carothers Crossing West have not yet been announced.

Brentwood High School

Williamson County Schools announced in mid-November it has paused work on renovations to Brentwood High School, located along Murray Lane in Brentwood. The district is working to redesign plans after construction bids for the project came in over budget. The school, which added a science, technology, engineering and math building earlier this year, is expected to renovate the campus’ entrance, along with other updates.
