Former King's Lodge On The Side Of Missionary Ridge Is Transformed

Tuesday, June 13, 2017

Anyone who drives regularly through the ridge cut on I-24 is familiar with Kings Lodge, the budget motel that stood on the side of Missionary Ridge since 1970. Built just three years after that portion of the interstate was completed, Kings Lodge was once an iconic place for Chattanooga visitors to stay and enjoy the sweeping views of downtown and the mountains.

In recent years, however, it fell into disrepair and became notorious for police raids on drugs and other illegal activity.

This extended stay motel had turned into a makeshift apartment complex that was really run down,” said Heather Everett, property manager for ViaNova Development. “It was basically ready to be condemned. It was sitting on such a terrific location, though, and we saw it as an opportunity for some really great downtown housing."

ViaNova purchased the property and has been transforming it into a modern apartment complex that retains the beautiful views of the city. The first phase is complete, and one-bedroom, one-bath apartments are available for rent.

“We’re all about the view, and every single apartment features a mesmerizing view of downtown, Lookout Mountain, and Signal Mountain,” Ms. Everett said. “It’s beautiful all day long, but it’s absolutely breathtaking at sunset.”

She said, "In addition to stunning vistas, the View at Mission Ridge is just minutes from both downtown and Hamilton Place Mall, making it convenient for daily commutes in either direction. The rent is affordable for young professionals and for students, and it’s close to major employers and schools without being right in the middle of the traffic.”

 The View at Mission Ridge was completely rebuilt, and each apartment now offers vinyl wood floors, stainless steel appliances, walk-in closets, and private patios or decks to take in the scenery. Pets are allowed, and rent includes water and other monthly services. The apartments are also equipped with high-speed Internet and smart laundry facilities.

Within the next 12 months, an outdoor pool and clubhouse will open on the property as well as a fitness facility.
