Plans to build one of the largest developments in the history of Knoxville and Knox County are moving forward.

The sale of the old Baptist Hospital in South Knoxville is expected to close next Monday. Developers Blanchard and Calhoun say demolition will start in February.

Plans are for a mixed-use development on the site, that will feature luxury apartments, shops, a hotel and restaurants.
