Karns Valley Business Park

Karns Valley Business Park (KVBP) features four to five development-ready sites on 80 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 Ridge National Lab (15 minutes) and McGhee Tyson Airport (20 minutes), downtown Knoxville (20 minutes) and the I-40/75 split (15 minutes).

Karns Valley Drive provides direct access to Oak Ridge Highway to the north, and to the south through WestBridge Business Park, provides rear access to Hardin Valley Road and Pellissippi Parkway/I-140.

KVBP was 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 provides opportunity for exercise and recreational use by both business park employees and nearby residents. Development standards will ensure superb overall quality in building and site design with abundant amounts of landscaping throughout.

Utility Overview

KVBP is being served by all available utilities. 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 the sanitary sewer goes to a state-of-the-art wastewater treatment plant 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.
