Corker tours "The Block" before its opening in November
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.
