2 More North Chattanooga Building Projects Set

Tuesday, June 6, 2017

The Planning Commission next Monday will hear two more building projects in rapidly-growing North Chattanooga.

Vernon Judge and Kenneth Kirklen want to develop property they own on the south corner of the intersection of Black Street and W. Bell Avenue.

There are some steep slopes on the site, but developers have increasingly been placing new units on hilly lots.

The RPA staff said Black Street is near commercial and Bell Avenue includes residential. The recommendation is"Deny E-CX-3 Urban Edge Commercial Mixed-Use Zone for 630 West Bell Avenue and approve E-CX-3 Urban Edge Commercial Mixed-Use Zone for 604 Black Street."

Development is also planned at 721 N. Market St.

The request is from Uno Terra/Gabe Thomas.

Collier Construction is planning two-story and three-story single-family dwellings.
