Corker tours "The Block" before its opening in November

Posted: Updated:

Senator Bob Corker was in the scenic city Wednesday touring one of downtown Chattanooga's largest re-purposed projects.

"The Block" is Chattanooga's newest outdoor climbing space, located on the side of the old Bijou Theatre.

During Corker's tenure as Chattanooga mayor, he initiated a citizen-based process to take advantage of the outdoor opportunities throughout the region and "The Block" is one he says he's very proud of.

The downtown project costs about 6-million dollars to complete.

Included in "The Block" are Rock-Creek Outfitters and High Point Climbing and Fitness.

It's set to open in November.
