Overview / Comments

Former multi-floor car dealership in the heart of Downtown Chattanooga. Opportunities for mixed-use include retail, restaurant, apartments, hospitality or office. The rooftop has great potential for a bar or other open-air business.

The building is approved to add an additional 4 floors for a total of 8 or use the roof as a 5th floor. Three sides of the building can have the brick removed and floor to ceiling windows added. Currently, the building is a mostly an empty shell.

The first floor has a large roll-up door with a loading dock located inside the building. Ability to have the main entrance on the Market or Broad St. sides of the building.

The property sits 1.5 blocks from the 4th Street exit, overlooking the street where that traffic feeds. The 4th Street exit is one of two exit ramps into Downtown Chattanooga's City Center and is used by most traffic headed to key attractions including the Riverfront, McKenzie Arena, UT-Chattanooga, and downtown tourist sites, hotels, and restaurants.
