Land Use Winner: Suttree Landing Park, City of Knoxville

Cannon & Cannon is proud to be a part of Suttree Landing Park and would like to congratulate Knox County for this project!

Along the Tennessee River South Waterfront, the City of Knoxville initiated a master plan which redevelops abandoned industrial properties in order to promote commercial, residential and economic revitalization. Previous plans for Suttree Landing Park were proposed to construct an outdoor recreational area where a former industrial brownfield site was located.

Cannon & Cannon, Inc. lead a team of eight consultants to re-initiate the project by providing a constructability report, value-engineered alternatives and construction drawings for the City of Knoxville.  Suttree Landing’s riverwalk, festival lawn, playground area and water access were strategically located to protect environmentally sensitive and archeologically preserved areas.
