In the market for a green office? Chattanooga’s first LEED certified building is on the market for $2.95 million

Photography by Mike Pare / This three-story structure at 714 Cherry St. was downtown Chattanooga's first LEED-certified building, according to a real estate broker.

What was originally a downtown Chattanooga hotel that was renovated into an office building, and which bills itself as the city's first structure to become Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified, is for sale.

The three-story building at 714 Cherry St. was raised as the Hamilton Hotel in the 1890s, according to commercial real estate broker Chandler Hale of SVN Second Story Real Estate Management.

While the first and second floors are existing office space, the third level could be renovated for use as a luxury condominium, he says.

The asking price is $2.95 million for the site that also has a LEED-certified green roof. The 11,750-square-foot structure includes five parking spaces.

The first floor has seven private offices and a large conference room suitable for an executive team, according to the broker. The second level has more of an open concept with three large open-office areas and a loft overlooking the first floor. The second floor also offers a full kitchen.

The building has a basement, hardwood floors, central heating and air-conditioning, and it sits in an opportunity zone.
