Western Heights


Located just off Keith and Western avenues in Northwest Knoxville, Western Heights is KCDC’s largest affordable housing property with 440 units. It features ample green space for planned activities and events in partnership with local agencies and resources.

A section of the property built in 1939 underwent an extensive renovation in 2019. Updates included new wood-grain vinyl plank flooring, kitchen cabinets and countertops, upgrades to interior plumbing, resurfaced interior walls and energy-efficient LED light fixtures throughout the units. The exteriors feature a historically accurate color palette and silicone moisture sealant.
