At about 50,000-square-feet, the Brighthouse building was built in 1996 at 1516 Riverside Drive and has been a data and information technology center for a variety of businesses, according to Hudson Commercial LLC. It has several generators and uninterrupted power supply, and it boasts an entire fiber optics loop network on site, including armored fiber.
Potential uses in addition to high-tech are institutional, medical, office and research and development, according to Hudson.
The building has served as a location for businesses run by Chattanooga businessman Carey V. Brown. A former successful used car dealer in Rossville, he has held ownership interest in more than 14 businesses in the technology and Internet pay-day loan sectors.
A separate streaming media firm, st3, previously operated at the site for several years.
