(MURFREESBORO) Mayor Shane McFarland was on WGNS last week (11/13/2019), and received a question about a stalled apartment construction project on South Church Street (Shelbyville Highway, 231-South).
He did not know the answer about the complex that is behind Zaxbys, and wanted to check with others for an accurate response.
Murfreesboro Building & Codes Assistant Director Kevin Jones replied, "I reached out to the contractor and touched base with Justin Morgan, one of the developers. He mentioned that they were contacted by a few developers about buying the project to finish it out. While they were entertaining these options for a few months and trying to get it to work out, construction slowed to a crawl. A deal could not be reached, so they are planning to vamp up the pace again to complete the project within the next 6 months or so. Justin stated that we should see work start back gradually over the next few weeks."
