Richard E. Dover and Family Pride Corporation Plan Senior Living at Old Knoxville High

Tennessee entrepreneur Richard E. Dover and Family Pride Corporation completed the purchase of the historic Knoxville High School building in October 2014. In the spring of 2015, the building is going to have a whole different look.

Family Pride Corporation has plans to restore the building and transform the location into a collection of senior living apartments, reports Richard E. Dover. As an experienced developer of historic buildings, Dover understands the complexities of this type of project and knows how to complete the task with efficiency and creativity.

The historic Knoxville High School building will also feature a half-dozen studio apartments created for the benefit of working artists in the local community. These artists will be able to live and work in comfortable surroundings while creating works that appeal to the entire community.

The purchase price of the historic Knoxville High School building was $500,000, according to Richard E. Dover of Family Pride Corporation. The organization expects to spend an estimated $14 million to modify the building and complete the upcoming renovations.

As the general manager of Family Pride Corporation, Richard E. Dover has focused his attention on historic preservation through modern means. He intends to meet all LEED environmental standards with the new building. A number of exciting amenities are in the plans as well: transportation, nursing staff, housekeeping and spa services.

As a tribute to the original site, Richard E. Dover and Family Pride Corporation are organizing a museum to share the rich history of this location and the local community as a whole. The alumni association of Knoxville High School has offered their support and services, with a series of rotating exhibits and programs to be held throughout the year.

The historic Knoxville High School building is one of the most prominent sites included on the National Register of Historical Places.
