Chattanooga's long-vacant Southside lot to be apartments, retail

Posted: Updated:

One of the prime gateways to downtown Chattanooga will be developed as a mixed-use apartment and retail building, according to property owner River City Company.

At the corner of Main and Market Streets, Wise Properties is planning to build a 4-story, $7 million complex of retail stores and rental housing units. The 75,000-square-foot building will include 60 apartment units as well as 10,000 square feet of retail space on the ground level.

Construction should start by the end of the year and will be finished in 2014, developer John Wise said.

"It really completes that street," River City president and CEO Kim White said. "I think it will add a lot to a major gateway."
