How do my guests get into my residence?

While parking on the street, guests will walk down the sidewalk to your front door if you’re on the first level. If on the second level, the guests will call your home from the security panel at each entry foyer and either walk up the stairs or take the elevator to your home.

How to I get into my home from the garage?

There will be two secure, high-speed, commercial hydraulic elevators in the garage that will access the lobby leading to your unit.

Obviously if you buy the extra space, one guest could park in the garage. Any other guests will have to park on West Main as do any other guests who visit the other homes up and down the street.

Who/What is D9 Development?

D9 Development is a company founded and managed by Bernie Butler who has been developing properties in 10 Southern States for 3 decades. The last 15 has been focused mostly on Historic Downtown Franklin with significant projects like The Brownstones at 1st & Church, the 131 Third Avenue North Office Building, 231 Public Square ( the redevelopment of the old First Tn Bank Building on the Square ), 415 Boyd Mill and other special projects around Franklin. Bernie works on only one great project at a time to make sure that not only makes a statement architecturally but becomes a fixture and something enjoyed by generations to come.

Investment

What are the anticipated HOA fees?

As with most residential condominiums that are responsible for everything outside your unit, including the complete HVAC systems, the standard cost for that is set at 0.42 per unit square foot, per month. On a 2,300 square foot unit, the HOA bill would be $966 per month and on a 3,600 square foot unit the HOA fees would be $1,512 per month. We will use that number for year one while we adjust the HOA budget o include only the costs to maintain these luxury homes and environment and to meet the owner’s day-to-day expectations.

Does the HOA fee include my utilities?

No, each unit will pay their own utility bills as each unit is separately metered.

How much is the deposit?

All deposits are non-refundable and will be held in escrow with the Title Company until the closing of your home: 25% of purchase price at contract execution. Then, 25% of purchase price when dry-in is complete and ready for finish out.

Design

What makes The Arlington on West Main so special?

We believed from the start that just because you chose to “downsize” from big house living, you shouldn’t be forced to downsize the way you live your life when you choose to be home.

At The Arlington, the rooms that you will live in day to day will be a similar scale to the amazing homes you’re leaving. The sizes of those rooms ( master suite, kitchen, great room, outdoor living area, pantry, master closets and bathrooms are large so you can live and entertain the way you’ve become accustomed and give up nothing from what you have. The structural steel columns are buried in the walls so you don’t see them. The walls are thick and the doors of your residence are all 8 feet tall solid wood with four heavy duty hinges on each. Your windows are Pella Architectural Series Elite Casement, the structural floors are thick concrete w/sound membrane under the hardwoods and tile floors, the demising walls are actually three walls thick with sound insulation in two of them and the ceiling is concrete with sound insulation under it so you don’t ever worry about hearing any neighbor next door or below you. The fireplaces are wood burning and the openings of those fireplaces are large (48”) so the scale is right to the ceiling height, the hot water heater is actually a recirculating commercial boiler maintained for the whole building that delivers all the hot water you want for those long showers back from the road.

These are the bones that will then allow you, the designer, the architect and the builder to deliver a very unique residential offering that you love waking up to when you’re in town.

What will the guest lobby look like?

There will be two entry foyers/ guest lobbies which will resemble the grand foyer of a home and not, I repeat, NOT a lobby of a normal commercial condo/high-rise. When you walk in, there will be a beautiful set of stairs that go up to the second floor along with an elevator lobby.

Can I change my floor plan?

Every unit can be tweaked a little and we have built in 5 hours of time with our Architects to help you get it like you want it. But that “tweaking” has to be on small things because we are designing around structural columns and codes issues about means of egress pertaining to the way you have to move in and out of the unit. But yes, you can tweak your space to make it feel like the custom home it will be.

Property Management

What does the HOA take care of?

The HOA takes care of management fees, insurance on the main building, the grounds, and everything outside your unit including: the maintenance and replacement of all the mechanical units, the roof, the maintenance of the landscaped grounds, the parking garage, the elevators and entry lobbies, the outside elevations, the outside of the windows, and security system.

As a residence owner, what maintenance am I responsible for?

As an owner, you will be responsible for all of the inside maintenance of your home (including the porches). The only exception to that is your HVAC system, which includes the heating component of the system, which is in your unit. Everything else that is covered outside your specific unit will be the responsibility of the HOA.
