The Bank of Franklin in Franklin, Tennessee, along with the Bank of Green Hills in Nashville and The Bank of Brentwood in Brentwood, is a branch of The Community Bank, Nashville, Tennessee.
Although located beyond the boundries of the downtown historic district, the owner and architect both felt the unique character of Franklin should be maintained and preserved in the bank's design. Owners selected a prominent one acre lot next to the main post office where Oak Meadow Drive and South Royal Oaks Boulevard intersect. Interstate I-65 and U.S. Highway 96 make this a rapidly developing commercial area. Highway 96 is a major access route to Franklin's central business district.
The bank is a two-story, 10,846- square-foot building. The first floor houses the main banking area, officer's offices, teller stations, conference room, work area, vault, lounge, public toilets, elevator lobby, stairs and includes three drive-thru teller stations. The second floor is rentable office space, which will be taken over by the bank as they expand.
A raised ceiling over the banking area is formed by the main entrance, the teller line and two structural columns on each side and features a curved lighting alcove. The offices and two customer service areas are provided an unrestricted view of the bank interior through sandblasted patterned glass. The lobby floor and teller areas are hardwood. Offices are carpeted.
The exterior is wood mold brick with a grape vine joint, fixed one - inch insulated glass windows in white aluminum frames and gable ends of exterior insulation finish systems (EIFS). The roof is a deep red standing seam metal roof, with matching gutters and white downspouts. The original site plan called for a right turn only at the rear of the site at South Royal Oaks Boulevard. However, Franklin Planning Commission would only approve a plan which required a thru lane adjacent to the drive-up stations. The site was already tight due to a maximum size allowed building footprint and a large retention pond at the south corner of the site.
