Cummings Cove To Become Part Of Black Creek Mountain Overall Development

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Cummings Cove in Lookout Valley will become part of the Black Creek Mountain development.

Officials said, "Located in the heart of Lookout Valley, the Cummings Cove neighborhood was named for the late Judge Will Cummings, who is credited with construction of the iconic Market Street Bridge, the Chattanooga portion of the historic Dixie Highway and placement of the Chickamauga Lock and Dam.

  His vision for the community he called home was nothing short of remarkable and the neighborhood bearing his names was designed to meet that same visionary thinking.


"The new developers of Cummings Cove and Black Creek Club announced today that the neighborhood is now known as Black Creek Mountain.  They noted that as the neighborhood continues to grow from the ‘cove’ up the side of the mountain, it is time to provide a name that encompasses the rich heritage of the past as it plans for the future.  With Black Creek flowing throughout the neighborhood, it only makes sense that the name should as well.

"The developers of Black Creek Mountain have already started to build on the sense of community that the residents share by adding a package of amenities.  A brand new sports park, nature trails, and dog park are just a few of the amenities added in the past year.  The Black Creek Clubhouse has also been completely renovated and more than tripled in size with a new fitness center; full service restaurant; bar and lounge; men’s grill; private dining; and, golf shop.  The clubhouse will also feature resort-style pools with a water fall that cascades from pool to pool.

"With plans for a general store and options that will allow residents to live above their office or store, the Black Creek Mountain community pays tribute to the visionary thinking of the late Judge Cummings."

Jennifer Francis of Black Creek Mountain Realty said, “We’ve provided great detail to this community which has been recognized as a ‘Top 50 Master Planned Development’ in the country.  As we plan for the future, we will continue to pay great attention to the area’s rich heritage.”  

Ms. Francis said that among the future additions will be The Ridges, 175 lots that will feature Craftsman style bungalows.  The homes will feature high-end appliances, finishes and construction standards that will stand the test of time.  Black Creek homes feature sweeping vistas of Lookout Mountain, Aetna Mountain and Raccoon Mountain.


“As we’ve planned this community, we wanted to make sure that we ‘got it right’,” said Ms. Francis.  “With respect for the area, its history and its people, we’re sure that Black Creek Mountain will continue to set a national standard for many years to come.”
