A new parking garage in downtown Knoxville is seeing its first signs of progress. Crews have begun demolition on the building across the street from the Market Square Garage on Walnut.

Crews will tear down the building and eventually build a new parking garage that will hold 1,100 spaces. The garage will feature retail space on the ground floor.

Construction is expected to last eight months to a year.
