REDEVELOPING WESTSIDE CHATTANOOGA
TN, USA

 

> WATERFRONT
> URBAN REGENERATION

 

The City of Chattanooga commissioned us to define a redevelopment framework for the 570 acres Westside of Chattanooga, TN. Two urban design proposals were developed to address four key issues of the study area: a. US Hwy 27; b. Stormwater management as element of sustainable development; c. Extension of River Park to the Westside and Southside; d. Integrated redevelopment binding industries and small businesses. Two development proposals for College Hill Redevelopment and Riverfront District helped transform the area into a livable neighborhood that offered diverse housing options and a mixed-use, multi-purpose district of affordable housing with ample water view. The plan reestablished a community with coherence and growth capacity. The project won a 2009 American Planning Award.
