Heritage Walk Residential Community

Chazen is currently providing civil engineering design services for the proposed Heritage Walk – Residential Community, a neo-traditional development project overlooking the Ryall Springs Branch Creek in the City of Chattanooga. The project consists of 200 units of housing, a community center and a variety of recreational amenities. Chazen’s engineers, landscape architects, and planners have worked closely together to foster a design that meets both City, County and owner expectations for this unique development project.

US Pipe and Wheland Foundry Redevelopment

A comprehensive Master Plan was created by Urban Land Associates for the redevelopment of an industrial property known as the US Pipe and Wheland Foundry which encompasses approximately 131-acres in downtown Chattanooga. “Based on sustainable development principles, the plan outlined a mixed-use development which established an urban design framework with blocks, streets, parking, open space and both commercial and residential uses. Located midway along the Tennessee River between the two most visited attractions in Chattanooga; the Downtown Aquarium and Lookout Mountain, the development became an anchor for the revitalization of south Chattanooga and created a new gateway to the city.”

To properly program and plan this redevelopment project, an in depth understanding of both public and private infrastructure was needed. Chazen, in collaboration with other project consultants, completed numerous field reconnaissance studies, public records research, and reviews of information provided by the City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Tennessee Department of Transportation, Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, and Tennessee American Water. With the results of the infrastructure assessment in hand, Chazen coordinated and collaborated with the design team to provide master planning services and support for the overall redevelopment project.

Stephens Valley Preservation Plan

Chazen collaborated with the Land Trust of Tennessee’s design team to prepare and assess various alternative development plans for the Stephens Valley large-scale community. By conserving natural resources and open spaces, the alternative development plans aimed to enhance the quality of life for residents of Stephens Valley while protecting one of the most scenic landscape views from the historic Natchez Trace Parkway.

Franklin Road Academy

Chazen prepared detailed site/civil engineering design services for a new 3-story student center at the heart of the 55-acre campus. The new student center uses dynamic interior and exterior spaces for positive social interaction while providing the school with enhanced venues for academic dining and assembly events.

Holy Trinity Montessori School

Chazen collaborated with the project design team to provide full design, engineering, ecological, environmental, landscape architecture, planning and permitting for a new 12,000 square-foot school located in the City of Nashville, Tennessee. The overall campus layout was based upon the fundamental design principal of “peace, knowledge and faith” with a holistic approach to learning.

Multi-level garden terraces, thousands of feet of retaining walls, box culverts, walking paths, and gathering areas were incorporated into the site design in order to promote different learning aspects into the student’s daily life experience. The site layout avoided wetland resources, maximized buffer areas, and preserved habitat by restricting site disturbance areas and maximizing open space.

 

 

 

Black Creek Residential and Golf Community

Formally known as Cummings Cove Community, Black Creek is a master-planned community combining traditional architecture and mountain views with beautifully landscaped streets and sidewalks. Homeowners enjoy all the luxuries of a master-planned community including nature trials for walking and biking, picnic areas, dog park, and Sports Complex. The Sports Complex hosts a playground, basketball court, junior soccer field, volleyball and pavilions with grilling stations.

In addition to providing detailed site development/civil engineering plans for numerous neighborhoods within this unique community, Chazen prepared a master plan for approximately 1,500-acres along the ridge of Aetna Mountain consisting of 1,000-units of housing, 20,000 square feet of commercial and office development, an inn, a civic building and a variety of recreational amenities. In addition, Chazen provided detailed civil and geotechnical engineering design for a new 10,000 linear foot boulevard roadway that will directly connection this new “top of mountain” community to Black Creek.

46th and Utah Mixed-Use Development

Chazen and a diverse team of consultants worked together to prepare the necessary applications and construction documents for the residential and commercial development located in the Sylvan Park section of Nashville. Chazen advanced this project through the City of Nashville’s Specific Plan (SP) and subdivision process.

This particular project complied with historic and re-development guidelines to qualify for retail and commercial parking reductions. Chazen secured planning, public works, water, sewer, and stormwater permits for the project, as well as provided construction administration throughout the construction process. Chazen designed and incorporated space sensitive green “low impact development” practices to satisfy Nashville’s new stormwater requirements while also meeting the developer’s aesthetic vision for the project.

Clemons Building

Chazen performed a code analysis for a rehabilitation project in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chazen was retained by the redevelopment team to provide a code analysis and feasibility study for the conceptual design of a mixed-use redevelopment in downtown Chattanooga. The building was built in the 1920’s, and the proposed renovations included an extended stay hotel with a rooftop terrace. Chazen worked directly with the architect, performing analysis of the applicable codes, identifying potential issues, and providing options for compliance.
