Major New Retail Project On The North Shore To Include Large Brewery

Thursday, November 17, 2016

A large new brewery, a fitness center and a women's clothing center will be tenants of a major new retail development on the North Shore.

Cardon Smith, vice president of the Fletcher Bright Company, said construction is about to start on the 300 Cherokee project. 

He said, "This will be the conversion of the old Mill and Mine/3M building next to the Business Development Center into a retail project.  This will be a complete renovation of the existing manufacturing building and we will be adding a new surface parking lot with 102 parking spaces for tenants and customers of the project.

"300 Cherokee is anchored by an 8,000-square-foot brewery with tasting room and a bar (Heaven and Ale Brewing Company), a 3,500-square-foot Orangetheory Fitness (2nd Chattanooga location), Merch (women’s clothing store relocating from existing Northshore location) and a Noire Nail Bar. 

"We are over 50 percent leased now and plan on completing the project for tenant turnover by April of 2017. 

"We have a prominent restaurant location available with a mezzanine for lease. 

"Additionally, we are working together with the owner/developer of Signal Mill and planning a pedestrian connection between the Signal Mill project and 300 Cherokee over the railroad track making foot traffic easier between the projects and creating a shortcut for pedestrians between Manufactures Road and Cherokee Boulevard."
