Jordan & Skala Engineers recently provided MEP engineering design for University Commons at the University of Tennessee. This 12-acre, mixed-use redevelopment project includes retail and dining space, a 49,000-SF Publix grocery store, a 120,000-SF Walmart, and a PetSmart. It, additionally, includes 169,000-SF of cold, dark shell retail, 42,000-SF of white-box retail, and a 295,000-SF structured parking deck located behind the stores.
University Commons is the first urban, multi-level, retail project in Knoxville and is just minutes from the central business district and the University of Tennessee. The $62M development fills a large grocery and retail void in the area and is expected to have a total estimated economic impact of $226M. Additionally, the project is expected to create over 1,500 jobs for the local community.
University Commons held its grand opening on September 25th, 2014, and serves the surrounding Knoxville community, as well as the University of Tennessee.
