South Broad District Study

In 2017, The Chattanooga Design Studio began a planning study of the South Broad District, which includes more than 400 acres just south of Downtown Chattanooga.  The study area included the U.S. Pipe and Wheland Foundry site, S. Broad Street, Southside Gardens, Market Street, and the area around Howard School. The purpose of the study was to develop a realistic, long term vision for the revitalization of the district. This vision was developed through a public-participatory planning process that involved hundreds of people during the summer and fall of 2017. This study document serves as a summary of the process and recommendations that came out of that process.

The draft planning study may be viewed here.
