Tenants announced include Flourish Flowers, Archer Paper Goods, F45, Mae Lee’s Boutique and Drop Zone Distilling, as well as an 18-merchant food hall that will include coffee, Italian, Southern and breakfast purveyors, among others. The second phase will also include multiple bars, stages, gathering spaces, a dog park and direct access to the proposed G&O Railway track. The project team behind Kern’s Bakery include Timothy Matin of TMA Real Estate; project designer Joey Staats of Knoxville’s Johnson Architecture; civil engineers Fulghum, MacIndoe and Associates; and project manager Jaron Dowalter of BurWil Construction Co. Phase I was the 310-unit Flagship Kerns apartment community, which is now open and fully occupied, and Phase III is still in the design phase.
