The Maclellan – Urban Apartment Living at the Heart of the Chattanooga’s Renaissance
Make a list of Southern cities that are well-known for urban development and revitalization and you’re sure to find Chattanooga, Tennessee at the top. The city is high on Arlington’s property management list as well with our featured downtown apartment community The Maclellan, which recently participated in River City’s “Downtown Living Tour” showcasing the apartments stylish, unique floor plans and amenities.
The May 18 tour allowed guests to see close up the benefits of urban living and enjoy some sweet deals on local eateries in the area. The Maclellan leasing team dressed the part for the after-work event wearing attire reminiscent of the roaring twenties, when the property was first developed. “The Maclellan tour showcased our model and amenity spaces with the highlight being a moonshine tasting paired with a custom cupcakes,” says Amy Hodges, community manager of The Maclellan. “Visitors toured our gorgeous beaux arts lobby area, community room with kitchenette, and our business and fitness center. And, they were amazed to learn that we offer 30 unique floor plans with breathtaking views of the city. The property is one in the growing foothold of historic urban properties that Arlington manages and we’re always excited to show off the one-of—a-kind living that can be had in this unique space.”
“For people who want to live, work and play in an urban environment, we have just the place. In addition to being near so many major employers downtown, we’re close to fabulous local restaurants and Chattanooga nightlife venues, including the Tivoli theatre,” says Hodges. “People also love the fact that we are within walking distance of the Tennessee Aquarium, the Walnut street Bridge, Riverwalk, and the Hunter Museum,” she says.
“One thing I love about our apartment community is that we are in the middle of “Gig-city”, which is a really cool way to say we have the fastest internet available in the nation,” added Hodges. “It’s provided by EPB Fiber Optics and our residents love it, especially those who work from home.”
“The Maclellan is an exclusive collection of 85 apartment homes in a historic setting in downtown Chattanooga. Heritage Land and Development Company based out of Memphis acquired the Maclellan building in July 2015, after it sat vacant for 10 years, with the intent of a multi-million dollar historic renovation, preserving the notable charm and character while providing an opportunity for downtown apartment living,” says Anne Adams, regional manager for Arlington.
She added that most locals recall the building as headquarters of The Provident Life and Accident Insurance Co. The Maclellan, named for the prominent Chattanooga family who ran the insurance company, was completed in 1924. The revitalized building initial move ins began in May 2017.
“At The Maclellan, we’re wild about the providing style and flair in a location that is desirable and unique, just like the great city where we’re located. That’s the Arlington way, said Adams, to provide uncompromised integrity in every property we manage.” “We’re honored to represent this amazing space that hearkens to the past, and has been so thoughtfully reengineered for the future.”
