Work began today on one of the biggest private projects in the history of downtown Knoxville. The old State Supreme Court site along Henley Street between Cumberland and Church will be the site of 237-unit Class A apartment community. The abandoned court building and adjacent office building will be converted into a hotel. The joint project by Dover Signature Properties and Bristol Development Group will be built by Hardaway Construction. The apartment community will feature amenities such as combined co-working/coffee shop, an outdoor dog park with pet spa, 24-hour package receiving and sending, gift-wrapping and packaging room, a wellness studio for meditation and yoga, a fitness studio, pool, outdoor kitchens, and a media center. The development will also include exterior public art for the appreciation of both residents and the public.
