Aspirations to turn a prominent downtown Chattanooga property into a new Hamilton County public school have taken a major step toward reality.
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee has accepted Hamilton County's $10 million bid on its 11-acre Golden Gateway campus, which the company recently put on the market amid a shift toward remote work. The land sits at 401 W. M.L. King Blvd.
“The county put forward a competitive bid and a bold vision for the site,” Roy Vaughn, whose role as chief human resources officer includes oversight of corporate properties and services, said in a news release issued Friday by the company. “We are excited about the future possibilities for Gateway given our history of supporting local education.”
