• Charleston-based real estate developer James Doran Company is preparing 22 home sites for new home construction at Northshore Town Center, a new urban destination and lifestyle center. The company has entered into this first building phase with Knoxville-based builder Mike Stevens Homes to design and construct 270 upscale residences and town homes within a neo-traditional neighborhood to be known as Beau Monde. The homes are configured to maximize interaction with neighbors on front porches, around parks and on interactive nature trails. James Doran Company has recently acquired and will soon start development of The Village at Northshore Town Center. This ‘urban enclave’ is nestled next to the site’s natural five-acre lake and will enhance the urban lifestyle through a mix of urban town homes, residential lakefront condominiums and retail commercial buildings. Town home lots are being sold to qualified builders and retail, office and condominium spaces are currently available. Situated along Pellisippi Parkway and Northshore Drive in West Knoxville, Northshore Town Center is a 155-acre mixed-use development in the heart of one of the most affluent areas of Knoxville. This destination offers 550,000 square feet of retail space, 330,000 square feet of “Class A” office space and 700 residences of single-family homes and townhomes, condominiums and apartments. Northshore Town Center combines retail, office, residential and leisure uses into a real neighborhood environment that is reflective of the popular new urban village style. Tenants will include lifestyle retail anchor, restaurant, specialty, entertainment and service companies.
