Agency weighs building proposals

Two developers have made similar proposals to turn a vacant downtown Franklin building into at least 20 small offices which tend to attract attorneys, insurance brokers or real estate agents.

The courthouse is just a block away, the city has a low amount of vacant office space and both developers also have plans to encourage more entrepreneurs and start-up businesses. Both expect the office building would fill up quickly and stay full.

Now the Franklin Development Corp., an organization that was created and funded by the city with tax dollars, will decide which proposal to approve and help pay for.
