New residential construction remains steady. Most of the permits issues for new residential construction are for lots within established subdivisions. Some of the projects include Morgan Farms, Taramore, Owl Creek, Glen Abbey, Cromwell, and Whetstone.
The Planning Commission has approved final plats within subdivisions that are currently at various stages of development.
• Reserve at Raintree Forest Subdivision: is working to begin phases 4 through 10 of the 554 acre subdivision. 100 acres on the hilltop within the subdivision have been donated to the Land Trust of Tennessee as a conservation easement.
• Sneed Manor: is one of the newest subdivisions in Brentwood. While small, at only six lots, the lots are larger 3 acres and great lots that are zoned agricultural-residential. To date only 1 home is being constructed.
• Tarabrooke: is a small, 8 lot subdivision off of Split Log Road. Only 1 lot has been issued a construction permit.
• Traditions: is completing Phase 1 of the OSRD plan. Currently 53 of the 127 lots are platted.
• Whetstone: is also nearing completion with all of the 141 lots .
• Witherspoon & Holt Witherspoon: One of the largest subdivisions approved by the Board of Commissioners in recent years is the Witherspoon Subdivision. Witherspoon is continuing to grow with 63 lots remaining out of 154 approved lots.
Hill Center Development Phase 1:

CityPark Development: The CityPark project has been open now for over a year. The property is located off Franklin Road and is currently close to fully leased with a mix of retail, hotel, and office space throughout the property. A weekly farmer's market is a new addition and will be every Thursday in the courtyard in front of the hotel for 13 weeks.

Brentwood Place Shopping Center: Stein Mart is back and in the Brentwood Place Shopping Center after leaving in 2015 when Nordstrom Rack took over their lease. Across the drive aisle, Chick-Fil-A has expanded its kitchen to help with long lunch lines. A second drive thru lane was also added. Due to congestion at certain times, an additional lane was added when entering the shopping center and traffic patterns will be changed to allow for better flow during peak times.
