Jax Liquor has been a downtown Chattanooga staple for more than 40 years. The owners of the iconic store decided to reinvest in their great location and capitalize on Tennessee’s evolving alcohol laws by building a new 8,000 sf facility from the ground up.
For better utilization of the lot, the design sited the new building on the corner of Market and 3rd Streets, which enhances the pedestrian experience. It also allowed to retailer to remain open during the construction. The $1.7 million project more than doubled the size of the existing building, which was demolished at the completion of the new facility to create a 23-space parking lot on the side of the building.
