Knox Heritage Statement Regarding the January 30th Standard Knitting Mill Fire

While we are lamenting the damage to the Standard Knitting Mill, we have confidence in the plans that the owners have been formulating throughout the pandemic. We have been in touch with them, and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with the developers as they evaluate next steps. We want to thank the Knoxville Police Department and the Knoxville Fire Department for their swift action and for ensuring that no one was injured in the fire.
