For sale to a business looking to expand or relocate in Franklin: a new 50,000-square-foot building that’s ready to be designed to your needs.

Construction is finishing this month on a shell building on Graham Road, which was built this year with the hope of attracting a new manufacturer to the city.

The building, which was partially funded with tax dollars, was constructed with three loading docks and an overhead garage door, but no floors or interior walls, so it easily can be adapted to meet a company’s needs.

The Johnson County Development Corp. has sent information about the building to 17 companies this year, President and Chief Executive Officer Cheryl Morphew said. Nine of those have visited Franklin to check out the building. And three companies still have the building on their list of site finalists for new locations or expansions, she said.
