A cosmopolitan kind of living has come to downtown Franklin.

Lofts with high ceilings and laminate wood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and large, airy rooms would be more fitting in Manhattan than central Indiana.

But developers, city leaders and young professionals have all seen the value of modern housing set in the middle of the city.

For residents looking for a stylish residence, the Lofts @ the Wigwam have created unique living spaces in downtown Franklin, borrowing from the best of the big city. Developers have taken historic buildings throughout the downtown area and turned them into chic apartments steps from entertainment, dining and jobs.

The strategy is just one step — albeit an important one — in establishing downtown areas as the epicenter of city life.

“There’s high demand for these downtown units. There is so much space down here that is not being utilized,” said Ryan Wadsworth, partner of Wadsworth Realty Investment Group, which owns the Wigwam.
