Franklin, Greenwood officials hope to capitalize on available downtown space

When a Greenwood attorney bought his downtown building five years ago, he saw potential on the second floor that was in need of remodeling.

Now, R. Lee Money’s Main Street building is home to seven small offices, which are almost always leased by local professionals, including a mental health specialist, bookkeeper and insurance agents.

And in Franklin, attorney Steve Huddleston makes about $2,000 per month off of apartments above his office on Jefferson Street. The five apartments are often rented by Franklin College students, and he thinks even more residents will become interested in living downtown as the city continues to make improvements, such as replacing sidewalks, and attracts new shops and businesses and possibly a grocery store.
