A New Model for Building Community
In the heart of Chattanooga's Oak Grove neighborhood and anchored by a century-old textile mill, Collier is building a new model for how a community can grow in a place where craft is appreciated. At Mill Town, diversity and sustainability aren’t just buzzwords, their bragging rights and our city's proud industrial past points the way to an equally industrious future.Contact Us
A hundred years ago, the Standard Coosa Thatcher Mill in the heart of Chattanooga’s Oak Grove neighborhood was one of the biggest and busiest textile production facilities in the southeast, an icon of Chattanooga’s manufacturing might. Its closure and abandonment in the early 2000s led to a long period of disinvestment in this once-thriving neighborhood – a neighborhood left behind while the rest of Chattanooga moved forward. In 2019, Collier Construction and its partners purchased the mill and 40 surrounding acres, intent on realizing a vision for a new mixed-use community, informed by both the area’s industrial past and the city’s industrious future. Mill Town's location – close to downtown and many of the city’s most distinct and desirable neighborhoods – is still among its greatest assets, and unique partnerships with local community parnters ensures that price points for many residential units remain within reach for area families. Today, we’re building a new model for how a community can grow. A place where diversity and sustainability aren’t just buzzwords, they’re bragging rights. Where the arts aren’t just for entertainment, they’re for engagement. And where craft is appreciated – in the homes, in the workplaces, and in the lives we build together. The mill itself stands as an enduring testament to what was and what can be again.
