Germantown bans single-use apartment buildings

GERMANTOWN, Tenn. (WMC) - After months of discussion, the Germantown planning commission has voted to ban standalone, single-use apartments.

This means the only way developers can build apartments in the city is by building a mixed-use development, or apartment buildings that include retail or office space, like the Carrefour at Kirby Woods.
