The O District may additionally serve as a transition between single-family residential areas and more intensely developed commercial or industrial areas within the City of Knoxville.

- Relatively flat sites (less than 10 percent slopes) Along corridors with transit and sidewalks
Mixed Use Regional Center
Downtown Knoxville?s Central Business District is a regional mixed use center.

Mixed Use Urban Corridor
Commercial cores should be created at points (nodes) along these corridors, allowing a vertical mix of uses (for example, shops at ground level and apartments above); such nodes should not be more than four blocks long.
- Corridors should have sidewalks, transit services, street trees and related beautification
- Capable of sustaining on-street parking along corridor or along side streets
