Boyle Investment Company officials ceremonially broke ground Thursday on that company’s Berry Farms development in the Goose Creek area.
Originally approved in January 2008, the project was given approval by Franklin officials to construct more than 600 homes and more than 1 million square feet of retail and office space.
Boyle Investment officials said recently that the groundbreaking was strategically timed and included such factors as the improvement of the economy in Middle Tennessee and Williamson County and the expansion of I –65. The 604-acre mixed-use development is slated to offer a range of homes, services and office options.
Phase 1 includes 11 commercial lots with approximately 70,000 square feet of retail on 22.62 acres, and the Residences of Berry Farms, a swath of 53 residential lots.
Grading has been going on at the site, west of I-65, for several weeks
