The Overlook. South Knoxville Near James White Parkway.  Available Late 2024

Machinations, the team who brought The Overlook to downtown, is set to begin construction at the beginning of the year on their latest project, Honeysuckle, located on a hill just off the James White Parkway in south Knoxville. The location allows for easy access to downtown, the Interstate, and the Urban Wilderness, and Ijams, all located within a short walk, bike ride or drive.

Josh and Jessica Wright, owners of Machinations, have focused their company on the use of high quality materials to produce what they call “vertical neighborhoods.” They utilize the public space and movement of people through their buildings to promote connections. This new development is going to be a great addition to the South Knoxville Landscape. Click here for more info.
