Facade Improvement Plans Ready for Pick-up

A welcoming, vibrant commercial district sends a powerful, positive message about a community. Glass House Collective was founded to bring life back to Glass Street and Glass Street back to life. We are working to restore Glass Street’s unique, historic facades—improving storefronts one building at a time to lend a critical sense of place and ownership to the area. We believe that this is an important part of bringing business and investment back to East Chattanooga.

The Facades Improvement Program consists of exterior facades improvements made to three separate buildings on Glass Street in East Chattanooga. The work is divided into three portions with each portion addressing one of the three buildings included in the project. The bid pack ready for pick-up addresses Portion 1.

Portion 1 addresses 2432 glass street. Portion 1 includes partial building demolition, building component removal, salvage, minor roof patching and repair, rain leader construction, aluminum entrances and storefront installation, masonry repair and patching, masonry construction, porcelain tile installation, metal framing, gypsum board installation and finishing, poured-in-place concrete construction, concrete finishing, minor electrical work, exterior painting, lighting installation, and awning installation.
