A nearly 100-year-old building on Chattanooga's North Shore is on the market with an asking price of $1 million.

The two-story structure at 605 Cherokee Blvd. stands out because of the use of stone to construct the building. The structure dates to about 1925, according to the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Assessor of Property.

The standalone structure has 2,788 square feet of space, says Chattanooga commercial real estate broker Ashley Missel of KW Commercial. It also offers 100 feet of road frontage along Cherokee.

The location is near more than two dozen condominiums which were recently raised by Chattanooga development group Fletcher Bright Co.

The new housing units were raised on the site of the former longtime Nikki's Drive-Inn restaurant as the development group cited the tract's proximity to downtown. Nikki's was an 80-year-old restaurant icon in the Chattanooga area, known for its jumbo fried shrimp and onion rings, when it closed in March 2020 amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the eatery never reopened and Fletcher Bright Co. bought the property.

On the opposite side of 605 Cherokee Blvd., another developer recently built co-living and co-working space under one roof as the Tomorrow Building and Society of Work expanded to the North Shore.

The live-work concept is anchoring a $17 million development called Somer Station on 2.5 acres between Cherokee Boulevard and Somerville Avenue.
