The Knox project is a 382 bed, 101-unit, 208,376 square foot student housing community in Knoxville, Tennessee.
The Knox project is a 382-bed, 101-unit, 208,376 square foot student housing community located on approximately 1.65 acres in Knoxville, Tennessee. The project consists of three buildings: a 6-story building (5 stories on 1-story garage podium), a 3-story building and a 3-story parking garage with the first two levels serving as parking and third-level serving as a green roof with an amenity deck.
The 101-unit project consists of 26 three-bedroom/three-bathroom units, 71 four-bedroom/four-bathroom units, and 4 five-bedroom/four-bathroom units. The amenity deck/green roof features natural grass, plush landscaping, hot tubs, grill stations, a fireplace, ample seating, and an outdoor movie theater – all with a view of downtown Knoxville.
Construction is a post-tensioned podium slab with concrete columns supporting a concrete deck for the second floor. Buildings one and three are conventional wood framing which includes wood roof and truss systems. Building two is constructed entirely of cast-in-place concrete.
The exterior of the building consists of brick, stone, Hardie lap siding and stucco. Interior finishes consist of painted drywall, textured walls and ceilings, and a mixture of carpet and faux wood flooring. Wood cabinetry and trim with granite countertops are installed in all kitchen and bath areas.
