"Best Condos ANYWHERE - Shame about the Foreclosure"
Jamison Station, across from the multi-purpose building known as "The Factory" on Liberty Pike in Franklin, was itself built as a multi-use building, with the intention of attracting high end retailers or offices for the lower floors, and upmarket residents for the condos on the upper floors, as well as for the large, luxurious townhomes located behind the main building. Unfortunately the developers ran out of money even before the housing crisis, which meant that by the time they needed to borrow, they stood no chance of finance or re-finance. As such, many of the projects, including sculpted, communal gardens and a pool, were never finished. Likewise some of the condos were themselves never completed. However, the ones that were are STUNNING. Solid wood floors, Travertine counter tops, Viking appliances (beautiful, state of the art, no expense spared gourmet kitchens), personal elevators, personal roof-top decks - you name it and it's there. But because parts of the project were never finished and the building not fully occupied, it has a hollow, un-lived-in feel about it that can be a bit unsettling. But all of that may soon be solved as the bank has recently foreclosed on the project and is auctioning off all remaining units and houses. As such there is hope that affluent first-time buyers will be drawn to it or that investors will buy and then manage them as high-end rental properties. Whatever the case, it's the one place I would move today if given the chance. It's close to downtown Franklin - literally seconds - secure and absolutely beautiful.
