Older apartment buildings with historic character also flank UTC, especially closer to Georgia Avenue. In addition, newer homes occupy a best-kept secret pocket neighborhood along Eighth Street.

Northshore
Crossing any of the four bridges connecting downtown with the north bank of the Tennessee River will take you to the fashionable Northshore area.

Crossing any of the four bridges connecting downtown with the north bank of the Tennessee River will take you to the fashionable Northshore area. Running along Frazier Avenue/Cherokee Boulevard and down Manufacturer's Road, the Northshore is the Mecca for dining, shopping and just hanging out among the eclectic mix of tourists and locals you'll find there. The area is home to two large city parks – Coolidge Park with its play fountains and carousel and Renaissance Park with its hillside slide and nature trails. It's also where you'll find the Southern Belle riverboat docked along the shore. Up the hilly streets just north of Frazier is a wealth of newly restored single family 40's style bungalows where many find a convenient, quiet place to live just a walking bridge from downtown.

Riverfront

Taking advantage of Chattanooga's $120 million riverfront redevelopment, many new upscale townhomes, condos and apartments sit within the prime location of Fourth Street to the banks of the Tennessee River. Poised in the epicenter of most of downtown's hotels, restaurants and attractions such as the Tennessee Aquarium, this neighborhood provides the perfect location for walking to a movie, baseball game, museum or simply taking a stroll on the nearby Walnut Street Bridge to the Northshore or along the thirteen-mile Tennessee Riverwalk. The perfect place for visiting tourists or empty nesters and those preferring luxury and convenience where they live, the Riverfront is a jewel in the downtown crown.
