Chattanooga designates innovative district to attract more jobs

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Chattanooga is trying to become the first mid-sized city to designate an innovation district.

The effort is part of Chattanooga's attempt to attract startup companies, technology, and the next generation "innovation economy."

Much like those in larger cities, Chattanooga's innovation district will include a catalytic mix of startup businesses, coffee shops, and restaurants -- all of which will be easily accessible.

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke says the district will brings jobs, talent, and capital to the city.

The district will be anchored by the Edney building, located at the corner of Market and 11 Streets.
