Chattanooga, TN– Due to downtown Chattanooga and surrounding areas seeing so much new housing, new self storage expansion is taking place in the city block of W Road and Mountain Creek Road. Located at the base of Signal Mountain, Signal Mountain Self Storage has brought in local contractor TG Edwards Construction Company to assist with the construction, which is scheduled to be completed in September. Mountain Creek Grammar School, which was one of the original foundations on the property, will be demolished for the expansion.
Erected in 1910, the history of Mountain Creek Grammar School will live on in the newly expanded storage facility. Having been converted for storage in the late 80s or early 90s, bricks from the original school building will be used to form three of the interior walls of the front office while the school’s original concrete corner will be added to the office. The corner stone reveals pieces of history surrounding the former elementary school, including the builder, architect, and original school board members. In addition to recycling the bricks, the metal and copper will be recycled as well. The renovated facility will see a total of 600 units and will be 19,580 square feet. “We look forward to continuing to service our loyal customers and friends in the Signal Mountain community,” commented Signal Mountain staff.
