Wednesday, August 2, 2017

The Plastic Surgery Group, Chattanooga’s first and largest plastic and reconstructive surgery practice, is relocating its headquarters to the Riverfront Commercial Center planned for the corner of MLK Boulevard and Riverside Drive. The move is scheduled for spring 2018.  

Dr. Jason Rehm, managing partner for the group said, “As our practice continues to grow, we’ve been looking for space that would provide better accessibility for our patients as well as a modern, more aesthetically pleasing space for staff and patients alike to enjoy. We are pleased to be the anchor tenant at Riverfront Commercial Center.” 

The planned development is a three-story, 33,000-square-foot space sitting on a 1.1-acre tract. In addition to river views and convenience to the Riverwalk, the center will provide parking spots as well as office customization. There are approximately 13,000 square feet remaining for lease in the building.  

“We’re very pleased to have the Plastic Surgery Group anchor our planned office building,” said Bob Elliott, president of Noon Development. “There is a significant need in the market for new professional and medical office space. Our strategic location broadens the trade area from an accessibility standpoint to allow our tenants to serve a larger segment of our community.”
