Elemi Architects has been signed as the first tenants for the new Southside Center at 1700 Broad St.

Office, restaurant and retail space is available from 1,000 to 20,000 square feet at the center.

There is parking for more than 90 cars.

John Straussberger, owner of Strauss Construction, and the late Porter Yarbrough, a local real estate developer and commercial realtor, partnered to create Southside Center. They purchased the site in 2008 when the development of the Southside was just beginning.

The development occupies a whole square block on Broad Street in the heart of the Southside surrounded by upscale urban development, trendy shops, galleries and restaurants.    

 They had great success in a previous project at 1201 Broad St.  They purchased and refurbished what is now the TVPPA building.  The success of that building was part of the decision to buy 1700 Broad St.

Jill Yarbrough, daughter of Porter Yarbough, said, "Chattanooga has not seen the renaissance of an urban area like this since the 90’s boom in North Chattanooga."
