The complex will include a comedy club, 500-capacity music/entertainment venue, retail space and two new restaurants with outdoor patio seating off of Market and 14th streets. The project will also include $1 million to be invested in renovating the hotel rooms in Building One.
“We will bring the building back to its early historical form, showcasing the original architectural elements,” said Jon Kinsey, Managing Partner of the Chattanooga Choo Choo. “By returning the historic building to its original open floor plan, we will honor the past while creating new and exciting attractions in the heart of Chattanooga.”
