Germantown in phase one of new mid-use development

Germantown is on phase one of a mixed-use development in Germantown on Poplar.

“It’ll have an ambiance all its own,” developer Ray Gill said. “It’ll be unlike anything that’s been built so far in our county.

The mixed-use spaces are trending nationally, and Germantown is the next to get one. Germantown City Administrator Patrick Lawton told FOX13 that this mix of residential and retail areas something different than Germantown has done in the past thirty years.

Right now Hilton will have two hotels on the property: Garden Inn and Home2 Suites. There will also be a grill and fine dining restaurant that’s names have yet to be released.

Gill said this could bring younger groups of people to the suburbs.

“The people who have just gotten out of school, the Gen-Xers, they realize some things about how they want to live their life,” he said.

They are currently on phase 1 of the development.
