To assist people looking to live in Downtown Chattanooga, River City Company has launched www.liveindowntownchattanooga.com, an information and resource tool for apartments and condos in the downtown footprint.
The site was created based on feedback from the 2013 City Center Planning efforts that included over 600 community members participating in various meetings and focus groups. While many people discussed the lack of rental housing in downtown, they also explained how it was difficult to find information on what properties offered rentable residential space and how to get in touch with the appropriate property management group for information.
“As we grow as a city with more and more people interested in living in the urban footprint, it was important for us to create a user friendly and attractive site that made it easy for people to search for housing,” says Kim White, River City Company president and CEO. “It’s another Chattanooga tool that can help us attract people to the area and keep people in the Scenic City.”
In addition to providing more information on finding housing, this tool can provide indirect benefits for retailers and restaurateurs downtown. “The more people we have living downtown, the more potential customers for downtown businesses will
be available within an easy walking or biking distance,” says Blair Mard, River City Company retail recruiter. “Also, increasing the number of downtown residents will be an attractive asset when new retail and restaurant establishments are looking at Downtown Chattanooga as a location option for their business.”
Aimed to be a starting point and information hub for those interested in living downtown, River City Company does not own or operate residential properties. If someone is interested in a listed property, he or she should direct all questions to the contact information included in the individual property listing.
