Planned Karns Valley Business Park


Karns Valley Business Park (KVBP) will feature three to four development-ready sites on 66 acres with convenient access to ORNL and McGhee Tyson Airport

The park is located in East Tennessee’s economic sweet spot, surrounded by East Tennessee’s highest concentration of technology-based companies, population and skilled workforce. It is centrally located between Oak National Lab (15 minutes) and McGhee Tyson Airport (20 minutes), downtown Knoxville (20 minutes) and the I-40/75 split (15 minutes).

With the imminent completion of Karns Valley Drive by the summer of 2018, KVBP will have near direct access to Oak Ridge Highway to the north. To the south, WestBridge Business Park provides access Hardin Valley Road and Pellissippi Parkway/I-140.

KVBP will be developed as a small, exceptionally attractive and desirable business park that will aid in the recruitment of companies and employees. A paved perimeter walking trail for exercise and recreational use by both business park employees and nearby residents is planned. Development standards will be in place to ensure superb overall quality in building and site design with abundant amounts of landscaping throughout.

Utility Overview

KVBP will be served by existing utilities that are either nearby or already on the business park property. Lenoir City Utilities Board maintains a large electric substation immediately adjacent to the site with sufficient capacity to power the park. West Knox Utilities District (WKUD) has 24” and 30” water trunklines running through the perimeter of the development, and nearby sanitary sewer line will soon connect to a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant under construction along Melton Hill Lake. Natural gas is provided via an 8” main that will be extended into the business park. KVBP will be well positioned to meet most any business’ utility needs.
