The county is home to some of the top full-service hospitals in the country including one of the only six Level I Trauma Centers in the Tennessee. Known as the "Gig City" as the first city in the nation to offer 10-gigabit internet speeds. Chattanooga has a number of excellent private schools including the Girls Preparatory School, McCallie and Baylor.

The subject property is located at 825 Houston Street and just north of ML King Boulevard in Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee. The subject neighborhood would be considered to be that portion of downtown Chattanooga which is bordered on the north and west by the Tennessee River, on the south by Interstate 24, on the east by Central Avenue. The property is immediately bordered by •North: Scenic City Hostel, and 26 room boutique hostel catering to business travelers, outdoor adventurers and athletes, and extended stay professionals. •South: Barley Taproom featuring craft beer and cocktails and live music •East: Kanku’s Convenience store (no parking, no gas pumps), and UTC Mapp Building (classrooms) and parking. •West: The Coin-Op Video Arcade (video games) and JJ’s Bohemian (Taproom, live music) The subject property is located in a portion of downtown Chattanooga which is has recently been targeted for major redevelopment efforts. M L King Boulevard, which is located just south of the subject, and McCallie Avenue, to the north of the subject, were changed from one-way to two-way streets during recent years. These traffic changes have spurred development in the area of the subject primarily in the form of renovation of older buildings for higher use. Additionally, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga has been in a period of growth for the past several years and is progressing toward M L King Boulevard with the development of new student housing facilities in close proximity to the subject. Future development in the area would be expected to be largely developments connected with or ancillary to the university. Direct access to the subject neighborhood is via the west side of Houston Street with the primary traffic arterials in the area being M L King Boulevard to the south and McCallie Avenue to the north. Access to the neighborhood from other areas is considered to be good due to the proximity of the subject to U.S. Highway 27 to the west and the subsequent access it provides to Interstates 75, 24 and 59. The Chattanooga City Hall is located two blocks south of the subject. University of Tennessee at Chattanooga main campus is located approximately two blocks northeast of the subject. The two major UTC buildings are located directly northeast of the subject. Most of the frontage along M L King Boulevard is commercially developed with many of the commercial properties in the area having living quarters above the storefronts. Most recent developments in the area have been in conjunction with UTC. Following the conversion of M L King and McCallie to two-way traffic, development in the area has increased due to the improved access to properties on either side of the streets. Development by UTC is expected to dominate the area well into the foreseeable future.
