There are several new apartment developments making headway in Williamson County, each hoping to pave its way in how we view and experience modern apartment living, focusing on style and ease.

There are several new apartment developments making headway in Williamson County, each hoping to pave its way in how we view and experience modern apartment living, focusing on style and ease.

Not all of us are ready to buy that first house, or some might be in a transitional period and need a more affordable option. To some, apartment living means limited space, noisy neighbors or a place where the family pet isnt welcome.

With new construction flooding the market, these new complexes offer tenants the comforts of home in ways like never before. Imagine a place you can not only sleep, but also take a cooking class or taste wine with friends, or have lower monthly utility bills due to the sites green design.

Cameron At Franklin Park

At Cameron At Franklin Park, one of Williamson Countys largest new apartment developments, residents will be treated to a sleek and modern comfort strictly designed to make home life great for any occasion.

Developers Spectrum Properties Residential broke ground in July 2013 and hope to complete construction by next April. Overall, the area will house 328 units, of which President of Spectrum Properties and key Cameron developer Steve McClure say will start pre-leasing as early as next week.

Were still under construction and should deliver our first units this fall and were starting pre-leasing as we speak, McClure told the Home Pages. Our trailer should be up and running by next week.

McClure said that for a team of developers, the big challenge was bringing something to the table that hasnt been done before and will make residents see apartment living in a whole new light.

As an apartment developer, with each new project were having to step up our game because of the competition. I think residents are the beneficiaries of that because its a pretty high-end, cool place to live and I think youre going to see more and more people choose to rent because they have great options.

Features inside a unit at Cameron At The Park include a modern flowing layout with lots of open space, large windows inviting in natural light and panel flooring throughout. Kitchens will feature quartz countertops, flat panel cabinetry with subway tile backsplashes, stainless steel appliances and a large basin sink with pull-down faucets. Residents will also be able to choose from two different color pallets and finish options.

Bathrooms will have enclosed showers, soaking tubs and stylish tiling. Each bedroom will also have its own expansive walk-in closet.

Cameron aims to be more than just another complex full of people, offering several outstanding amenities to its residents. The sweeping two-story, 11,000 sq. ft. clubhouse offers several options for exercise, relaxation and a chance to work and mingle with others in the community.

I think our amenity package will help differentiate us. Were going to have an 11,000 sq. ft. clubhouse, two stories with one wall being a two story wall of glass that will overlook the pool-courtyard area, McClure said.

The 2,700 sq. ft. health club features a yoga room, state-of-the art strength-training equipment, free weights and cardio machines, each with its own personal TV monitors.

The saltwater pool surrounded by hammocks and sundeck seating will be a popular hotspot, as well as multiple other outdoor kitchens, a green space courtyard, lounges with fireplaces and grill stations. The clubhouses top-of-the-line catering kitchen will feature wine tastings and wine lockers for personal storage.

A tech lounge will have four iMacs, as well as a professional conference room for meetings. Residents with pets can also use the onsite pet-care area with washing station. For parking, there will be an enclosed, secure parking deck.

Prices and floor plans for Cameron At Franklin Park are still being considered, but will be available when pre-leasing starts. For more information or to set up an appointment, visit Cameron At Franklin parks website, Facebook page, or visit the trailer located at the intersection of Carothers and McEwen.

Obviously, starting next week they should come by the trailer and well have a lot of the finishes that they can look at and touch and feel as well as renderings and some things like that, McClure said. Therell be a leasing trailer they wont be able to miss.

Crescent Cool Springs

Not far off Carothers down Resource Parkway is another Franklin development hoping to bring its unique spin on cutting edge modern living. Crescent Cool Springs will be a 252- unit complex expected to be finished in February, although its first tenants will begin moving in Aug. 15.

We plan on having two buildings per month come up, Leasing Agent Bridgett Holleman said.

The site has also been designed to meet the requirements of the ICC 700 National Green Building Standard and hopes to receive Bronze Level Certification. Requirements include water and energy efficiency, indoor environmental quality and building operation and maintenance.

Amenities offered to Crescent tenants are definitely one of the perks. The clubhouse, which opens next week, will feature a state-of-the-art fitness center and Yoga room, as well as an outdoor saltwater pool and fireplace. A 24-hour contemporary clubroom will have a lounge, a kitchen offering catering and cooking classes and a wine bar with private wine lockers for parties and wine tastings.

There will also be a manual car wash on site. All amenities are provided without extra cost.

Floor plans at Crescent Cool Springs range from one to three bedrooms and are priced between $1235-$2600 per month. If you would like to tour Crescent Cool Springs, hard hat tours are currently being offered Saturdays at 11 a.m. and 3.p.m. For more information and leasing, click here.

District At Seven Springs

Although technically located in Davidson County, District At Seven Springs is another development hoping to bring its eat-play-work atmosphere to Brentwood. Located off Old Hickory Blvd. just behind Target, the complex will house 280 units, which are renting fast.

We started leasing in February and we are at about 90% leased right now. I think we have about 30 left, Community Manager Brooke Skavron said. People have been very receptive. Were getting a lot of people moving in from the Lenox Village-Nolensville area, pretty much anyone that has an apartment in Brentwood, if their lease is up and they can get in, they have tried to get here.

Floor plans include one to two bedroom interior entry units featuring 12-foot high ceilings, granite backsplash and stainless steel hardware, including a stainless steel kitchen table designed by Solomon Builders. Prices range $999-$1650.

The leasing office at District At Seven Springs recently moved from a nearby trailer to a fully furnished space and when complete will feature a library/lounge area and workout room. Step outside onto the sun deck and you can enjoy a relaxing dip in the units saltwater pool, or maybe get together with friends and neighbors around the grilling station or flat screen TVs under the cabana and fire pit.

Its like a Brentwood-style Gulch, Asst. Manager Emily Venezia said. Youre still getting an urban feel, but in this location, as good as Brentwood is, is so hard to find.

Being a resident also has its perks with local business, including nearby Corner Pub, which offers discounts and services for resident living there.

With the different businesses we have, we call them District Deals where we do valet dry cleaning with the cleaners and were working out some stuff with Corner Pub, like we do trivia night there on the patio. Different businesses just give people discounts for living here and its great, especially at Corner Pub you could just walk there and walk home.

District At Seven Springs hopes to open Sept. 1. For more information and leasing, click here.
