Warehouse, retail and restaurant space, located in a section of the Dodds Avenue area of Chattanooga that's undergoing rapid change, is on the market.

The site at 1811 Dodds Ave. offers large open spaces, according to Jonathan Campbell of Keller Williams Realty.

With a sale price of $1.49 million, the 21,000-square-foot location includes a retail or office area facing Dodds Avenue. The downstairs warehouse has been converted into entertainment space with a new kitchen, including an updated electrical system, the real estate broker says.

A pair of new roll-up doors add versatility in terms of the kind of businesses which could occupy the space, according to Campbell. The site offers an upgraded sprinkler system while downstairs has been treated with fireproof foam.

The tract backs up to Mill Town, a large, mixed-use development taking shape in East Chattanooga on the site of the former Standard-Coosa-Thatcher mills. S-C-T was a yarn and thread maker that began in 1892 and ultimately shut down in the 1980s.

That planned $160 million residential and commercial development sits on 37 acres. The aim is to build more than 350 new single-family homes and apartment units and convert 300,000 square feet of an abandoned factory into office, retail and residential use.
