Developer Chris Burkhart says, “East Knoxville has been an underutilized area for a long time because of aging businesses and housing. We realized that reclaiming the old rock quarry, annexing adjacent properties and upgrading the entire 25 acres into a thriving local business park would put a welcome new face on Knoxville’s East Gateway.”
Located just four miles from downtown Knoxville, off I-40/Exit 392 (The Knoxville Zoo exit), Rock Pointe Crossing encompasses more than 25 acres of C-6-zoned land (mixed commercial, retail and industrial). With easy access to I-40, I-75, I-81, and Highway 11, and a 90,000+ traffic count, Rock Pointe Crossing is ideally situated to serve the area’s long-standing need for a flourishing, multi-purpose business park.
Burkhart worked with engineers, land planners, architects and the city’s planning commission to consolidate multiple properties with different zoning into one area zoned C-6 (general commercial park district). The planning commission’s flexibility, which arose from their understanding of the importance of revitalizing this long-neglected area, will allow Rock Pointe Crossing to attract the most desirable tenants for the property.
