All part of their evolving plan to turn the property into mixed use, town centers. Dave and Busters & Aubrey's are slated for the location of the adjacent Sears Auto Service building. And Cheesecake Factory opens today on the upper lot between Sears and the CBL office building.  A hotel is also planned with additional retail.

More southside development on the way at 33rd & Broad, near the CCS campus. Just to the west on Broad, a new Publix market is planned. The plan was defeated by the planning commission last month due to parking being in front of the building. Neighbors want it behind the building. Now, a revised plan will be coming up for review next month. 

More on Chazen's plan to build 450 residential units and 48,000 sf of retail space.

Love that the city stood it's ground and forced the developer's hand on this.  Having parking in the back may seem like an insignificant and trivial thing, but having a parking lot that lot front the street can really reek havoc on an urban neighborhood.  Maybe the city learned it's lesson from the North Shore Walgreen's.  Ugh... I hate that thing.

That Walgreens is literally the worst thing ever.  Every time I see that thing I imagine what that corner would be like with a nice mixed use development and Walgreens could have still been on the corner.

Agreed completely.  It punches such a huge hole in what is otherwise a solid, vibrant street wall.   Hell, even if it were just a stand alone Walgreen's built up to the street it'd be passable, but ugh... its just ghastly the way it is.

Miken Developing is eyeing  a $40 million project that would include the adaptive reuse of some vacant industrial buildings. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports the project would yield a structure offering residential and retail space within the Scenic City’s fast-changing East Main Street corridor.

Miken has bought the eight-acre site, with an address of  1601 S. Holtzclaw Ave. and that formerly housed a Rock-Tenn facility.

The plan calls for about 120 for-sale residential units and 30,000 square feet of retail space, the Times Free Press reports.

I realize it's a big box with parking, but this has been a controversial project that gained a lot of public comments/input. Folks on top of the mountain want another grocery option (there's a FC on this side & a WalMart on the other). The people in St. Elmo wanted something more urban in design. 

https://www.timesfreepress.com/news/breakingnews/story/2019/may/01/chattanooga-panel-oks-proposed-south-broad-street-publix-plan/493816/

The Chattanooga Board of Zoning Appeals voted 6-0 for a waiver for the project related to parking and access to enable the 32,000-square-foot store to move ahead, barring any technical problem with the city.

A new compromise agreement by the city and the store's developer shifted the supermarket more toward South Broad and put small retail space against the street. Th changes appeared to ease concerns by some people who wanted an urban feel to the project.

I’m glad they fought it and got a better design, wish more people had done the same in North Chatt when Publix was announced.  That area of South Broad is prime for more development.

That's a beautiful building. I'm all for the Bode concept.

From the Soccer Stadium Digest...

Quote

Plans for a Chattanooga Red Wolves‘ stadium project took a step forward Thursday, when East Ridge, TN officials backed tax incentives for the development.

USL League One‘s Red Wolves are set to build a new stadium that will anchor a larger mixed-use development on about 100 acres at Interstate 75 and Interstate 24. The estimated $125 million projected is led by Red Wolves and Utah-based Star Community Builders owner Bob Martino, and calls for a 5,550-seat stadium to highlight a project that includes 400 apartment and condominium units, 375 hotel rooms, 475,000 square feet of commercial space including the stadium, and a mix of walking and nature trails.

The tax plan was described, thusly....

More from the Chattanooga Times Free Press:

The East Ridge City Council voted unanimously for the Border Region Retail Development District state sales tax incentive for the project. That allows the city to recapture the growth in sales tax collections within the zone and then plow those funds back into repaying investments in the area, including the planned $6 million stadium.

The proposed project will receive 97% of the incremental state sales and use tax revenues, while the city will receive 3%, under the city’s plan.

Mayor Brian Williams said the city doesn’t have any costs related to the development, adding it’s not providing land because the nearly 100 acres Martino is buying is private property.

“We receive a 3 percent return of their investment to our city,” he said.

It will be a nice 'soccer specific' stadium, but I'm surprised they feel Chattanooga could support a second soccer team.

We can’t support two teams, it will be interesting if this comes to fruition, Red Wolves attendance is in the 100’s despite what they announce at a match plus there is already questioning about building in a protected wetland, it will be interesting as to how it all works out, but I don’t know anyone wanting to go to East Ridge for anything.  http://www.chattanoogapulse.com/columns/shades-of-green/a-water-management-threat/
