Construction Update: 16 Emory Place

Thursday, January 11, 2018

The renovation to an existing historic three-story building and construction of a new roof penthouse is in its final stage.  This project was designed with our friends at Smee + Busby Architects.  The existing building is located north of downtown Knoxville and consists of existing multi-wythe brick walls, wood framed floors and two large transverse steel beams near the front of the building at the roof level.  Areas of the building were strengthened with additional wood framing to support a new mezzanine, the new roof platform and the relocated load bearing walls below the roof.  It was determined that the existing steel beams were adequate to support the roof penthouse and a custom steel stair; two features that provide unique character to the existing structure.  Once completed, the first and second floors will be rented office space, while the third floor and roof penthouse will be used as residential space.
