Burnside Neighborhood, a $25 million mixed-use community, will open to the public on Tuesday from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Tours of the apartments and commercial space will be available. The apartments are move-in ready, and the restaurant and commercial space are expected to be open later this year.
The community is located at the Andrews Paper Box Company site at 2100 Rossville Ave.
Jazz band Dexter Bell and Friends will perform live music at the open house. Complimentary refreshments, including various drinks and snacks, will be available and attendees will have an opportunity to win door prizes from local Chattanooga businesses.
Burnside is offering a “look and lease'' special for future apartment residents. Those who tour can receive up to one month of free rent; some limitations apply.
The 33 apartments offer unique, industrial living space with exposed brick walls, modern kitchens, comfortable common areas and access to the rooftop deck. There is additional storage space available for residents to lease.
The building includes 60,000 square feet of retail, commercial, apartments, and restaurant space, as well as a plan for 42 townhomes. The Burnside Development is a partnership between SEI Ventures of TN, LLC and GreenTech Homes.
Number Ten Steakhouse will open a Chattanooga location and anchor the mixed-use development. The restaurant’s flagship location is in Great Barrington, Ma., and this will be their second location, where they will offer a classic steakhouse experience at an affordable price. The menu will be unique to Chattanooga, with a focus on regional and sustainable ingredients.
The development of a full community will revitalize an overlooked corner of the Southside.
“We already have people moving into these apartments,” said investor DeDe Engsberg. “People are very interested in the historic location and beautiful living spaces. These apartments will not last long.”
The site is named after Oliver Burnside (O. B.) Andrews, who built the original factory buildings in 1912. The project draws on its industrial past, blending exposed brick with natural light to create a unique visual experience. Two of the original buildings will be used in the new development of the commercial space and apartments.
GreenTech Homes will build 42 townhomes with a variety of floorplans and include both 2-story and 3-story homes. They will range in size from 1,800 to 2,200 square feet. The area will focus on shared green space, outdoor living, multiple porches for every home and modern design.
“Right now, there is an incredible demand for homes,” said Jeremy Fitzsimmons, sales manager at GreenTech Homes. “These townhomes have the advantage of being close to downtown where there are hundreds of places to eat, shop and explore. Burnside will also have Number Ten Steakhouse, a community restaurant that makes it convenient for residents to walk a few steps to enjoy food and drinks.”
SEI Ventures is leading the design and development of the project. Financing for the project is through Renasant Bank in Atlanta. Croxall Construction is the general contractor, and Tom Bartoo of Method Architecture is the architect of record on the project. Learn more about Burnside at burnsidetn.com.
