Forest Cove Apartments, a Housing Trust Group development, has launched pre-leasing of its 120-unit luxury community, which is scheduled to open at 7674 E. Brainerd Road on May 1. With a variety of novel features, Forest Cove is singular in the Chattanooga market offering upscale amenities, lush greenery and park space, garages and a well-developed discount program for renters with local retailers.

“Chattanooga has become a magnet for big employers, entrepreneurs and creative people attracted by its high-speed Internet, so we sought to create a cutting-edge apartment package unlike any other rental community in the area,” said Matthew Rieger, president/CEO of Housing Trust Group, a multi-faceted developer with operations throughout the Southeastern U.S. “We believe Forest Cove will be a pacesetter for apartments in the future. By combining greenery and park space with modern design and technology, we have designed Forest Cove as a retreat in a natural environment, and a place to inspire creativity for the technologically savvy who wish to be productive at home, particularly in Chattanooga’s new entrepreneurial culture.”

Forest Cove Apartments offers one-bedroom units starting at $850/month and two-bedroom units starting at $999/month. This ‘hard-hat’ pricing and introductory reduced deposits now available are only offered to those who pre-lease before the project’s completion.  

Officials said, "Forest Cove’s ‘resort lifestyle living’ amenities include a luxury salt-water swimming pool with a heated Jacuzzi, modern, spacious clubhouse with cutting edge technology with free Wi-Fi throughout, state-of-the-art 24-hour fitness center, yoga studio, ‘carefree valet waste’ system, lush landscape park, playground, leash-free dog park and car care center. Residences include nine-foot vaulted ceilings, granite countertops, high-end stainless steel appliances including microwaves, ceiling fans, spacious closets and private balconies or patios.
