A Place of Connection for Over a Century

We help businesses and nonprofits, big and small, connect with each other effectively by offering a space that fosters community.

The Regas Building is an initiative owned by the Knoxville Leadership Foundation with a mission to be a gathering place for the community. Here nonprofits can work together and learn from each other, local organizations and businesses can host events or meetings using our first-class meeting spaces, and the community can connect in the Vienna Coffee house, all while enjoying a 125 year old historic Knoxville landmark.

Historic Regas

The building that we refer to today as The Regas Building has remained a steady presence in downtown Knoxville for well over a century. Originally much larger at five stories tall, the building has seen Gay Street transform from a railway to a roadway, traffic directing officers replaced by stoplights, and a passionate Regas family grow a small diner into a trademark restaurant.
