A slice of life for everyone

Kern’s Bakery connects the past with the present, inspiring interaction and engagement between all patrons. Situated on Chapman Highway in the New South Waterfront District, minutes from downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee, this 16-acre innovative mixed-use community is an extension of downtown and the future of South Knoxville’s growth.

The transformation of the iconic 75,000-square foot historic bakery building into a mixed-use community—including apartment homes, a food hall, market, entertainment areas and a brand-name hotel—creates a vibrant destination unmatched in Knoxville.
