River Rock

As the urban core of downtown Chattanooga, TN continues to expand along the rapidly developing Riverfront District, this urban infill project transforms two existing surface parking lots into a mixed-use redevelopment offering housing, parking, and commercial spaces. To recall the historic character of the early 20th-century masonry buildings throughout downtown, much of the new construction incorporates a careful combination of brick veneer, cast stone accents, and large window openings.

In accordance with the District’s masterplan, this project sits at a key intersection where the transition in scale moves from a denser downtown core to the residential areas. To fit this scale appropriately, the 162-unit development uses a variety of housing types ranging from studio apartments to three-bedroom townhomes. Four- and five-story mixed-use buildings include 15,000 SF of ground-level retail space with studio, one-, and two-bedroom flats above.

North of the mixed-use buildings, two mid-block alleys divide the city block to allow for pedestrian connections between Walnut and Cherry Streets. Between the alleys, three-story rowhouses on Walnut and Cherry bookend a new precast concrete parking garage. Each rowhouse includes a ground-level flat with a two-story apartment above. Large bays on the upper stories shelter patios and stoops at the street level and help transition the urban scale from the taller City Center to the residential areas north of the site.

Facing 3rd Street, two rows of townhomes include traditional elements such as pitched roofs and large, two-story porches that relate to the residential neighborhood across the street. Private garages for each townhome are accessed from a new alley in the rear. The development features residential amenities such as a club room and fitness center as well as a leasing office.
