City Center

Thriving City Center

With quaint lofts and historic homes, City Center offers all of the perks of downtown living. Proximity to bustling nightlife, prominent employers, medical care, and major roads makes this a desirable area to live.

 

Downtown Chattanooga boasts living options for a variety of tastes. From townhomes and condominiums to single-family homes and apartments, residences are generally either historic or modern in nature. 

Popular neighborhoods include Walnut Hill, Museum Bluffs, Museum Bluffs Parkview, Loveman’s on Market, Cameron Harbor, Park Place, and the Fort Wood district. Recently built luxury apartments can be found at the Riverwalk at Cameron Harbor.

A hot spot for Chattanooga’s top employers, the City Center is in close proximity to employers such as BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, TVA, Unum, and EPB, as well as prominent medical care facilities such as Erlanger, Parkridge, and CHI Memorial. Also located close by are the Hamilton County and City of Chattanooga governments, Chattanooga State Community College, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and Pilgrim’s Pride.

Residents in the area are close to I-24, I-75, and Highway 27, which allow for quick access to the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport and roads leading to Nashville, Birmingham, Atlanta, and Knoxville.

Students who call City Center home have a wide range of options when it comes to their education. Choices include Girls Preparatory School, Chattanooga Christian School, Baylor School, The Montessori School, McCallie School, and Notre Dame High School. Residents of the area can also easily take advantage of Battle Academy, a magnet school for K-5, as well as Siskin’s Early Learning Center, an educational center for young children with or without developmental disabilities or special needs. See the red pins on the map below.

City Center residents have quick access to top medical facilities such as Erlanger Health System, CHI Memorial, and Parkridge Health System. Those in need of long-term care or rehabilitation will find Kindred Hospital, Encompass Health Rehabilitation Hospital of Chattanooga, and Siskin Hospital for Physical Rehabilitation nearby as well.

There are several small food markets that dot City Center, whereas larger grocery chains – including Whole Foods and Publix – are accessible just across the river in Northshore. See the green pins on the map below.

The Tennessee Aquarium, Hunter Museum of American Art, Creative Discovery Museum, National Medal of Honor Heritage Center, and Tivoli Theatre are just a few of the world-class attractions available to residents and visitors alike. Additionally, the Chattanooga Pinball Museum, iGNiS Glass Studio, and Civil Axe Throwing offer unique, interactive experiences. Nearby, the IMAX Theater and AMC CLASSIC Majestic 12 movie theater show a variety of films.

City Center is no stranger to music festivals, as it plays host to Riverbend, 3 Sisters Bluegrass Festival, Riverfront Nights, and the Nightfall Concert Series every year. The annual Chattanooga Film Festival boasts unique genre cinema, workshops, and parties, while the Chattanooga Motorcar Festival attracts car enthusiasts from all over the Southeast.

Shoppers have their pick when it comes to jewelers, clothing shops, and convenience stores in the area. With places to stay, eat, and shop – including an upscale boutique and florist – City Center’s West Village is a popular destination for date nights or weekend outings.

Cutting-edge eateries, modern coffee shops, lively pubs, and chain restaurants make up City Center’s food and drink scene. Food Truck Alley, the city’s first-ever food truck park, is located on Market Street.

Part venue, part city park, the centrally located Miller Park offers green space, benches, and a community stage. Providing an escape from the bustling city, the Chattanooga Riverwalk spans downtown and can be easily explored by foot or bike.

City Center is the site of AT&T Field, where the Chattanooga Lookouts host minor league baseball matchups. At its Broad Street location, High Point Climbing and Fitness maintains 30,000 square feet of climbing space, including an outside climbing wall overlooking downtown and the Tennessee River. 

Specializing in the visual, culinary, and landscape arts, the Bluff View Art District is an old-world gem. Unique art can be viewed at the Hunter Museum of American Art, River Gallery and River Gallery Sculpture Garden, and Houston Museum of Decorative Arts. A few blocks away, the Bessie Smith Cultural Center preserves and celebrates African American history, and the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Auditorium offers guests the chance to experience performance art.

Did you know?

The Tivoli Theatre, with its dazzling grand lobby, domed ceiling, and crystal chandeliers, was almost demolished in the 1950s due to the rise of television, but it was saved by a grant from Chattanooga’s Benwood Foundation in 1962 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
