Chartwell Residential Breaks Ground on their Upscale Build-for-Rent Neighborhood in Gallatin

NASHVILLE, Tenn.--()--Today, Chartwell Residential announced it commenced work on its 40-acre residential community in Gallatin, TN, with construction services provided by Franklin Construction Group. The Chartwell Commons at Green Lea community features 528 housing properties, including multi-family units, townhomes, and single-family homes in one upscale development with an authentic neighborhood ambiance that sets the community apart from standard garden-style communities.

Chartwell Commons at Green Lea offers attractive rental housing options for first-time home seekers, empty nesters, and renters while offering a neighborhood setting that usually can only be achieved through home ownership. Pedestrian sidewalks, lush landscaping design, and decorative lamp posts are features throughout the neighborhood. The primary leasing and community center will offer an expansive interior lounge space, a 24-hour fitness center, and an expansive covered patio with a fireplace overlooking a resort-style pool. A secondary community building offers an interior lounge space for tenant gatherings/party events, a large resort-style pool featuring a splash pad, an exterior lounge and game zones, and a pool-adjacent fire pit. Chartwell Commons at Green Lea will also include a dog park and upgraded playgrounds.

“Chartwell Residential is at the forefront of revitalizing existing real estate while creating the next generation of rental communities in Middle Tennessee. We are meeting the urgent need for new and improved choices with Build-for-Rent communities, a departure from traditional multi-family communities,” says Stephen Walsh, Development Manager at Chartwell Residential. “Chartwell’s decades-long history of developing residential properties in and around Nashville gives us a unique insight into the Middle Tennessee housing market, allowing us to better understand the local community’s real estate needs and successfully deliver upon them.”

Chartwell Commons at Green Lea features 414 multi-family, three-story units in 32 buildings, with 138 attached garages. In addition, it includes 65 townhome units in 10 buildings, offering central units with covered carports and corner unit garages. The 49 single-family units have covered front porches and covered rear decks. The house sizes range from 1,700 to 2,500 square feet in single-story and two-story homes with attached two-car garages. All homes include upgraded appliances. The Leasing Center is scheduled to open in July 2023, with townhomes available to tour beginning in August 2023.

Chartwell Residential has more than $600 million in development projects throughout Middle Tennessee. Franklin Construction Group (FCG), Chartwell’s in-house construction firm, is the general contractor of Chartwell Commons at Green Lea, with more than $360 million in active construction projects.
