The Glass Street Commercial Corridor was a booming town center for East Chattanooga in the 50’s and 60’s. Despite its strategic location, today it sits mostly vacant surrounded by the under resourced but rising community of Glass Farm. Join Glass House Collective in cooperation with local artists, innovative partners and the neighborhood’s residents and business owners for an honest and laser focused charrette to revive the corridor. Your fresh take is just the spark we need! Using GHC’s own Next Big Thing urbanism workshop framework, you’ll help craft a phased vision for commercial spaces now under renovation along the historic corridor. The facilitated session will be anchored in the following guiding principles of placekeeping: inclusivity, accountability, phased and catalytic work, and resident-lead equitable development.

Glass House Collective is a non-profit working in an under-resourced community in East Chattanooga to make Glass Street and the surrounding neighborhood cleaner, safer and more inviting by using an artist-led, community-involved planning process while also implementing temporary and permanent projects, to bring about positive community change.
