Center On Main Groundbreaking Set Saturday On Main Street; Medical Complex To House 50 Employees

Wednesday, November 28, 2012
A major new development, Center on Main, will break ground on the Southside during MAINx24 on Saturday. County Mayor Jim Coppinger will join Center on Main founders, project developers, Southside community members and MAINx24 event goers in recognizing the occasion, which will take place at noon.

Located at 320 East Main St., the 20,000-square-foot complex,  will house the Center for Integrative Medicine, Center MedSpa, physical therapy, and a multi-purpose room to accommodate yoga, tai chi, and educational seminars. It will be home to approximately 50 employees.

With the expected August 2013 opening, Center on Main will be the largest new construction on Main Street in recent memory.

“There is no doubt, Center on Main will be an impactful and significant addition to the Southside,” said Jon Kinsey, former Chattanooga mayor and principal partner at KPH Development. “When you look at how the business district on Main Street has evolved over the years, since the original Southside plan in the late 1990s, you see an evolution of growth that’s not only good for the Southside – but good for Chattanooga as a whole.”

The building’s founders, Terry and Dr. Jeffrey Jump, have collaborated with Eric Myers of Elemi Architecture, Rob Taylor of CityScape Development, John Straussberger of The Strauss Company, and designer Sara Webb to produce the LEED building that will make its place on Main Street.

 Amanda Carmichael, co-chair of MAINx24, said, “We are thrilled that Center on Main chose MAINx24 as the right time to break ground on their future home. The Southside is a place where neighborhood collaboration and inclusion is important. MAINx24 is an event that celebrates this philosophy and we love that Center on Main shares it as well.”

The groundbreaking is part of MAINx24 and is scheduled at 12 p.m. directly following the EPB Southside Parade. Now in its 6thyear, Mainx24's first event will start at 8:30 a.m. The festival will last a full 24 hours with the final event ending Sunday at 9 a.m.
