The 2018 City People Downtown Home Tour, May 3- 5, will showcase a variety of living options in downtown Knoxville. There’s something for every taste. Homes range from studios to multi-bedrooms, historic to newly-constructed, for young professionals, families and empty-nesters. Buildings on the tour include favorites like the Daylight, the Phoenix, the Arnstein and the Residences at Market Square. New to the tour this year are Mill Place Condos, Medical Arts, the Shamrock Suite in the Burwell Building, Knoxville High and The Daniel.

For the first time, this year will feature an exclusive VIP reception and home tour on Thursday, May 3, in the newly renovated Ely Building for VIP ticket holders. Enjoy music and drinks while viewing before and after photos or speaking with the homeowners about the process of renovating the historic building so they could relocate downtown from West Hills. You’ll have the opportunity to hear the architects from Sanders Pace that made the space worthy of nomination for a 2018 Keep Knoxville Beautiful Orchids Beautification Award. Steve Cotham, manager of the Knox County Public Library’s Calvin M. McClung Historical Collection will speak on the history of the Ely Building and other buildings in the surrounding area.

VIP ticket proceeds will go directly to the non-profit City People’s Small Grants Big Fun program. In 2017, the program funded art wraps, flower boxes, a luminary workshop, landscaping at the YMCA, and Christmas Carolers in the downtown area.

Tickets are $25 in advance, $35 day of event, $75 for VIP reception plus all other home tours
