A legal dispute between the City of Knoxville and One Riverwalk Apartments led to a fence blocking the popular pathway.
The City of Knoxville and a private apartment developer have signed a $2.5 million deal to resolve a dispute that closed down part of a pathway along the South Knoxville riverfront near the Henley Bridge. And the deal has been approved by the Knoxville Community Development Corporation, a city spokesperson said.
In lieu of completing those improvements, the developer agreed to pay the city $2.5 million and remove all fencing . The $2.5 million will be used to complete the connection with the CityView Riverwalk.
