McClung Warehouse Redevelopment Open House
Open HouseOn November 16, 2023, the City of Knoxville and Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation hosted a public input event at the Standard on West Jackson Avenue. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness of the redevelopment of the McClung Warehouse sites, and to gather input about what the community hopes to see in those spaces. Approximately 300 people participated in the feedback opportunities presented. Through meeting attendance and an online survey following the event, there were multiple methods for participation. This report serves to catalogue both the materials that were on display during the event and the online survey, and summarizes the collective feedback received.

Fire at McClung Warehouses February 7, 2007

In the early morning hours of February 7, 2007 the old Philco Warehouses, also known as the McClung Warehouses, caught fire. Responding units reported what was described as a "firestorm," fiery embers and ash filling the air and endangering surrounding buildings, creating a fire hazard for blocks. Multiple companies responded to the two-alarm fire, battling the blaze that lasted for nearly seven hours. Several firefighters were injured during the fire and Ladder 3 was lost when a wall collapsed and crushed the apparatus.
