The Center at Deane Hill

Building Area: 393,000 s.f.

Date of Completion: 1996

Type: New Construction

Location: Knoxville, TN

Budget: N/A

Challenge: Design a new retail destination located in west Knoxville.

Solution: Working with a development group from Atlanta, BarberMcMurry provided planning and design services for a retail center adjacent to the region’s largest shopping complex. Located on Deane Hill Drive and adjacent to Kingston Pike in west Knox County, the Center at Deane Hill occupies property which was formerly a private golf course.

The upscale center features a stucco, brick, and stone facade with design elements which reflect a “neighborhood shopping” image on a larger scale. Front door parking is available, but the mass of the complex reflects a smaller more intimate image due to parking islands, the placement of buildings, and landscaping. Major tenants at the center include Bed Bath & Beyond, Old Navy, Petsmart and Kohl’s.
