Where People Connect

Kern's Bakery is a 16-acre mixed-use destination situated along Chapman Highway in the New South Waterfront District just over the Henley Street Bridge from downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee Campus.

Inclusive of a transformation of the nationally-registered historic Kern's Bakery building, this multi-phase development calls for fully-furnished one- and- two bedroom apartments, retail, restaurants, workspaces, entertainment and a hotel. This destination serves as the trailhead for the 30-mile G&O Trail and connects downtown to Knoxville's Urban Wilderness, 50 miles of trails and greenways.

Led by Brantley Basinger and Alex Dominguez, principals of Mallory & Evans Partners, LLC, Kern's Bakery is one of the first development deals in the nation to close in an opportunity zone. The financial investment by Ozone Capital Management, LLC into the multi-family community and to redevelop this historic site will stimulate economic activity and job creation in the South Knoxville market.
