The Costco warehouse store, the Cabela's outdoor megastore and a Hobby Lobby craft store-anchored shopping center in Fort Oglethorpe, Ga., were joint projects between developer Larry Armour and the Catoosa County Economic Development Authority.

Now, that private-public partnership has announced its latest project has its first tenant: The Center for Sports Medicine and Orthopaedics, a Chattanooga-based medical practice with offices in Chattanooga, Cleveland, Hixson and Sequatchie County.

The Center for Sports Medicine will open its newest, 13,000-square-foot facility in what was code-named "Project Jump." It's a 20-acre commercial development that Armour, the county and the city of Ringgold are developing on Battlefield Parkway across from Battlefield Imaging about two miles west of Interstate 75.
