On a Friday afternoon, Doris Daniels and her husband sit on the porch of their house on West Main Street, watching construction across the road.

Demolition began last week on ten luxury flats with underground parking that will eventually take the place of old apartment buildings at 725 West Main Street.

Pricing is from $1.2 to $2.2 million, according to promotional materials.

The homes are being “created for those who know the difference between a Four Seasons and Hampton,” a flyer at the construction site reads.

Homes will range from 2,200 to 4,200 square feet; “large, covered porches” and “high ceilings” are also advertised.

“Only 300 steps from Starbucks,” is printed just above the price.

D9 Development founder Bernie Butler is known throughout the downtown community for creating the Brownstones just north of city hall and office space at 131 Third Ave. North with underground parking.

The name “Arlington” hearkens back to the old hotel on town square, where First Tennessee Bank is currently located.

The Daniels, whose home bears a National Register of Historic Places plaque, don’t particularly mind the new development.

“With the type of people that will move in, they shouldn’t be too loud,” Doris said over the din of construction in the background.

Similar to his Brownstones, Butler said construction on the West Main project will likely take two years.

“Great things don’t go quick,” he said.

“We haven’t started our formal marketing yet, but obviously we have a lot of people interested,” Butler added.

Other features:

  • Elevators from air-conditioned parking garage to living unit
  • Commercial grills and fireplaces on covered patio
  • Landscaped rooftop event space
  • Single-level living
  • Conditioned storage rooms in the garage available for purchase
