The neighbourhood, which is expected to be finished in August 2025, will have a range of studio to five-bedroom units. Each unit will feature a private bathroom, a gourmet kitchen, stainless steel equipment, and quartz countertops. A rooftop pool, study area, pickleball court, fitness facility, and 24,000 square feet of courtyard amenity space are just a few of the community amenities that will be available. Additionally, residents will have use to parking garages, a shuttle bus, grilling areas, and hammock groves.

The Mark Knoxville student accommodation is adjacent to Neyland Stadium, as well as a number of food and shopping options on Cumberland Avenue. Additionally, it is just a short stroll northwest of the University of Tennessee campus. Less than a mile separates the community and campus from downtown Knoxville.

With a record number of properties under construction totalling $4.7 billion and $1.1 billion in development starts, Landmark Properties continues to be one of the nation’s top developers of student housing. The company now has 22 projects in various stages of construction, with the completion of more than 38,762 beds expected between 2023 and 2026.

The Mark Philadelphia, a 909-bed student housing community close to the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University, has been the subject of company announcements since the year’s beginning. With The Standard at Dinkytown, a 1,021-bed student housing development near to the University of Minnesota, Landmark joined the Minnesota market in February. Later in March, the company spent $114.8 million on a 4.5-acre site near the University of Southern California, intended to be a 1,500-bed complex.
