This is obviously good news. I have a very random question. You can see clearly in those pictures the new planters outside at the ticket level. They were covered for the winter. They are still covered and we’re halway through July... little things like that really improve aesthetics and Cleveland just seems to be terrible at maintaining plants and trees. What gives?

I think this is a neat concept. It would be a nice place to grab dinner and a warm summer night.

Nightlife: Central Filling Station food truck park fuels a fun night out



Since early 2018, Central Filling Station has welcomed folks to the Happy Holler area with cold beer, lots of lawn games and plate after plate of delicious food. It’s a spot where you can simultaneously grab a quick bite and soak up the charm that has made Old North Knoxville such a thriving community, all while spending less than you would at most sit-down restaurants. Basically, it’s one of many reasons why I continue to fall more in love with our city.

I initially mistook Central Filling for a lunch spot. It’s easy to do — the convenience and efficiency of food trucks go hand-in-hand with the lunch crowd. Plus, for a group of coworkers who constantly debate about where to go, it’s a minor miracle. The daily rotation of food trucks offers something for everyone. But when I finally stopped by for dinner and drinks, I realized that the park was an equally awesome option for a night out.

Historic Cal Johnson building to get facelift after City Council approves PILOT



A historic downtown building and a building with a vacant lot in the Old City both should be getting a facelift soon after the Knoxville City Council unanimously approved two payment in lieu of taxes agreements Tuesday night.

In all, the projects, the Cal Johnson Building downtown and a lot across from the Old Knoxville High School on East Fifth Avenue, will uplift two segments of town and save the owners of the buildings an estimated $809,000 and $508,000 respectively.

Growing business: Neighborhood farm launching in Knoxville

Jeffry Turnmire has grown a backyard garden for all 14 years he’s lived in the 1300 block of Francis Road in Westavia Woods, but four years ago his field got a lot larger.

Now his ambition for the land has too: it’s Knoxville’s first residential “market garden,” a step up from a roadside produce stand.

Non-Ohio Projects & Construction / Knoxville: Development and News

I did a search and didn't see a Knoxville thread so I started one. I was raised in East Tennessee and worked in Knoxville for a couple summers when I was younger. I still have family that live and work down there so I like to keep up on the news. I've never posted much on this site (even under my old username) so if I'm getting the format for posting news articles wrong then please let me know so that I can fix it.

The West Town Mall seems to be adjusting a little better than a lot of mall across the country.

West Town Mall updates for new generation; Regal opens Cinebarre theater with restaurant, bar

West Town Mall is dressed up for a new generation of customers.

The results of 10 months’ renovation were on display Thursday afternoon, as mall officials and guests touted West Town’s multi-generational appeal. Mall Manager Robert O’Grady said shoppers tell him they came to the mall at 7600 Kingston Pike as children, and now bring their own kids.
