Master Planning

Five Points Redevelopment


Client: Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC)
Year: Ongoing



Since 2009, KCDC has been working to revitalize the Five Points Community. In 2012, JAI was hired to master plan and design their second phase of infill housing. Seventeen new units were completed in this phase which included two single-level duplex units and two two-story six-plex units all of which were Energy Star Certified. After completion of the infill units, KCDC engaged a team led by JAI and including Lord Aeck Sargent (Urban Collage), The Communities Group, Carol R. Associates (CRJA), Vision Engineering, and Real Property Research Group to develop a master plan for additional public housing sites in that community which included the Lee Williams Senior Complex and Walter P. Taylor Homes developments. The main objective of the master plan was to create a catalytic project on the target public housing sites which would re-energize the surrounding community. The master plan was completed in January of 2014 incorporating numerous housing prototypes and sizes totaling 352 units as well as a new three-story, 90-unit senior housing facility. KCDC is currently seeking funding for the project.
