Herman Walldorf Commercial Real Estate last week announced the addition of two new tenants at Southside Centre, the redevelopment project underway at 1700 Broad St. in Chattanooga’s Southside.

Dr. Charles “Chip” Crump and Dr. John Tapp, both internal medicine physicians of Parkridge Medical Group Diagnostic Center (PMGDC), and Dr. Michael C. Patterson, DDS of Chattanooga Family Dental Center will open offices at Southside Centre this summer. 

Operating under the umbrella of Hospital Corporation of America, PMGDC’s Southside location will offer primary care services under Dr. Crump and Dr. Tapp. Both men are currently practicing on the Parkridge Medical Center campus. 

Dr. Patterson’s dental practice will renew its commitment to the Southside in its move to the new facility, which is only a few city blocks from their present location on Chestnut Street.

Benjamin Pitts of Herman Walldorf Commercial Real Estate, along with Jason Lehn, manages leasing at Southside Centre for developer John Straussberger. Pitts helped to secure the two new tenants. “These two practices give the Southside community access to excellent health and dental care and anchor the commercial side of this project,” Straussberger said. “We want this project to be a great example of adaptive reuse for our city. This building was built as a car dealership, Hailey Chevrolet, in 1951, and then ABC Building Supply was here for a number of years. We are turning it into a mix of high-end apartments, offices, and retail.”

Southside Centre has about 9,000 square feet of additional available commercial space. Straussberger said they are working on getting a restaurant into part of that space.

For information regarding leasing opportunities, contact Pitts at (423) 756-2400.
