Knoxville, Tenn. — Campus Advantage is currently developing its newest project, The Knox, which will serve students attending the University of Tennessee beginning in fall 2016.

Pinecrest Partners is providing equity for the 101-unit, 382-bed community. Located at 1505 Clinch Ave., the location puts residents less than 100 feet from the University of Tennessee campus.

The Knox will feature three-, four- and five-bedroom apartments. The community consists of two buildings, a five-level building and a six‐level building, and features two levels of gated garage parking and nine floors of residential space. Amenities will include a cyber cafe, computer bar, lounge room with fireplace and large-screen televisions and fitness center, as well as an outdoor green roof with grills, water features, hammocks and a theater area.

Each fully furnished apartment features a 42-inch television in its living room, wood-style flooring in the common areas, an in-unit washer and dryer, high-end finishes, stainless steel appliances and cable and high-speed Internet. 

Campus Advantage worked closely with the Historic Preservation Office at the City of Knoxville, as well as the Historic Fort Sanders Neighborhood Association, to design a project that will be beneficial for the neighborhood and the campus alike.

Ronnie Macejewski, senior vice president of development of Campus Advantage, is leading the development efforts. The general contractor is FaverGray, and the architect is Kelly Grossman.
