A Chattanooga developer is looking at building nearly 100 new residential units off East Main Street near Montague Park in a third proposed complex in the area.

"Everything was planned to work together, sidewalks, green space, taking advantage of Montague Park and the Sculpture Fields," said developer Kevin Boehm.

EAD Holdings, a Boehm entity, won rezoning Monday on two tracts owned by Chattanooga Boiler and Tank Co. when the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission agreed to the requested zoning change for the new residences.

One tract located at 1690 Fagan St. and on the 1000 block of East 16th Street would hold 50 townhouses and 18 multi-family units, according to plans. An adjacent parcel at 1024 E. Main St. will have 31 townhouses, plans show.

Units there are expected to range from $300,000 to $500,000 each, Boehm said.
