Public Meeting on Proposed Residential Waterfront Development

Posted: 03/28/2012
A public meeting to discuss a proposed residential waterfront development within the South Knoxville Waterfront District will be held on Wednesday, April 4, at the South Knoxville Elementary School, 801 Sevier Avenue, Knoxville.

The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the school's gymnasium. The proposed 10-acre redevelopment will sit on the former Transmontaige Site (Tank Farm).

John Gumpert, president of Camden Management Partners of Atlanta, GA, will be discussing his proposal to construct a 219- unit residential development located on the edge of the Island Home Park neighborhood. The development would also include a riverwalk, boat access, and new streetscape designs - including a roundabout at the Island Home Avenue and Maplewood Drive intersection.

During the public meeting, Mr. Gumpert will present his preliminary design to South Knoxville residents and provide an opportunity for neighborhood residents and stakeholders to offer their input and suggestion on the proposal.
