20-story landmark tower could go on Alstom site in Chattanooga
A possible 20-story landmark tower in the middle of the former Alstom site is eyed by the tract's owners, who on Monday won rezoning approval from a Chattanooga planning panel.
"It would be like a corporate headquarters," said Jimmy White, president of West End Property LLC. White said his group hasn't landed a company for such a high-rise tower yet, but it's talking with businesses which may be interested.
White and business partner Hiren Desai won the OK of the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission to rezone about 75 percent of the 115-acre parcel off Riverfront Parkway near downtown. The City Council still needs to sign off on the rezoning next month.
