This article reports that Chattanooga, Tennessee, completed its $120 million 21st Century Waterfront Plan in May 2005. Conceived by former mayor Bob Corker, the result of the 35-month effort stretches along 22 miles of Tennessee Rivet shoreline, and includes major road improvements; new and refurbished nature areas; public art; the expansion of several public institutions; and commercial and residential development. No city funds were tapped for the plan. It was driven by $51 million from private donors and $69 million in public monies, such as state and federal grants and a local lodging tax. Other waterfront plan elements include a $30 million addition to the Tennessee Aquarium, a $19.5 million expansion and renovation of the Hunter Museum, and the addition of 150 on-street parking spaces and tree-lined sidewalks. The execution of the waterfront plan has also created residential ripples on several key parcels earlier set aside by project planners. Two condominium projects are set to open soon.
