Thunder Enterprises has finalized the purchase of Riverton, a 200-acre property along the Tennessee River in north Chattanooga. The owners plan to create home sites with dense lots that will offer residents views of the Tennessee River and Lookout Mountain.

Approximately 400 homes will be built on the property, signaling a $300 million investment in the area.

Thunder Enterprises has employed Canin Associates, an Orlando, Florida-based firm that specializes in urban planning, landscape and architecture, to assist with the Riverton building plan. Canin has planned and designed communities across the country.

“The Riverton site is exceptional, with rolling topography and outstanding views of the river,” says Brian Canin, president of Canin. “The community will be anchored by an intimately scaled village center energized by an elegantly landscaped public square.”

Additional amenities will include a wellness center, working spaces and walking trails.

Thunder Enterprises will share its plans for the community within the coming months.
