Century Building

36,000 sf historic redevelopment for office, retail, and luxury residential

The historic Century Building, constructed in 1886, sits on Gay St. at the heart of Knoxville’s entertainment district serves as an anchor property within the National Register of Historic Places listed as the Gay Street Commercial Historic District. Originally consisting of 35 historic buildings mostly built between 1870 – 1940, the district includes buildings along South Gay Street’s 300, 400, 500 and 600 blocks with adjacent buildings on State Street, Church Avenue, and Summit Hill Drive.

Since  its  development in the 1790s, Gay Street has been the center stage of downtown Knoxville’s progression from a commercial wholesaling capital following the Industrial Revolution to today’s vibrant entertainment and residential corridor. Through the hard work of countless individuals, organizations, and local government, and more than $50 million spent on redevelopment projects since 2000, Gay Street  has experienced a complete transformation  from  its  ghost  town  atmosphere  of  the  1970’s.

Henry & Wallace is pleased to call the Century Building home as of February 2014. The mixed-use development houses traditional offices and restaurant or retail space. The interior design was created by Henry & Wallace professionals with space planning and architecture by Knoxville architecture firm C3 Studio.
