Noon Development Breaks Ground On Downtown Commercial Building

Monday, November 13, 2017

Noon Development, LLC and the Plastic Surgery Group broke ground last week on a three-story commercial complex located at the corner of Riverfront Parkway and West M.L. King Boulevard. 901 Riverfront Pkwy will bring more than 33,000 square feet of new commercial space to the downtown area. 

“There is lots of great re-development going on in the city, but nothing like this new commercial space has been offered close to the city center in years,” said Bob Elliott, president of Noon Development. “This area of Riverfront Parkway is booming with new residential and commercial developments. Additionally, more apartments are opening downtown and on the Southside. This type of development activity has really opened the door for a new class of office space to the area.”  

The Plastic Surgery Group & Hayes Hand Center will anchor the building with their new headquarters on the first floor in 2018. 

Dr. Jason Rehm, managing partner for the Plastic Surgery Group and Hayes Hand Center, said, “As our practice continues to grow, we wanted a space that would provide the best location and accessibility for our patients. This exciting new office will also provide designs that allow easy access to new technology and equipment, and continue to provide our patients with the state-of-the-art care from the surgeons Chattanoogans have turned to since 1958.  We’re more than excited about this next chapter in the Group’s history.”   

The project will open in the summer of 2018. The three-story, 33,000 square foot building will provide quick access to I-27, as well as to the rest of downtown. Limited space is still available for lease. Interested parties can contact Mr. Elliott at 531-1330.

The Boss, Claude Ramsey

I try not to overuse the word great, but we lost a great man today, Claude Ramsey. I had the pleasure of serving under him as director of Commercial and Industrial Properties for 14 years while he was the Hamilton County Assessor of Property. He was probably the smartest person I have ever known. He was tough but patient, kind, caring and compassionate. He knew how to get ... (click for more)
