The northshore town center

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, The Neighborhood at Northshore Town Center offers a lifestyle unlike any other in East Tennessee. Designed with a hometown feel in mind, the town center prioritizes connectivity, with sidewalks and front porches encouraging residents to interact and forge lasting bonds. Rear-access homes ensure that the streets remain quiet and uncluttered, while expansive front porches beckon neighbors to socialize and enjoy the outdoors.

In the evenings, the neighborhood comes alive as residents spill out onto sidewalks and community gathering spots, embracing the spirit of camaraderie and togetherness. Whether it’s a leisurely stroll, a bike ride, or a golf cart trip, there’s always something to discover along the tree-lined paths. From locally-owned grills to Mexican restaurants and craft beer markets, the town center offers an array of dining and entertainment options, ensuring that every outing is an adventure.
