New “live-work” concept coming to Chattanooga’s North Shore
The Chattanooga Times Free Press (CTFP) reports that the Tomorrow Building and Society of Work are joining forces to develop a co-living and co-working space under one roof on Chattanooga’s North Shore.
The article (subscription required) says that the “live-work” concept is anchoring a $17 million, 58,000 square foot development called Somer Station that’s now going up on 2.5 acres between Cherokee Boulevard and Somerville Avenue.
The Tomorrow Building, which already offers 39 studios downtown at Patten Parkway, is adding 22 units at Somer Station, said Tiffanie Robinson, Founder of the apartment living model started six years ago and aimed at providing housing to budding entrepreneurs, innovators and others. The studios will occupy a new three-story addition that will connect with a renovated former Chattanooga Printing & Engraving building.
Kelly Fitzgerald, Society of Work Founder, told the CTFP that the co-working space will also include 60 offices. The organization is also located in the Edney Innovation Center in Downtown Chattanooga.
