Chick-fil-A to break ground next to Camp Jordan

One of the favorite stops for soccer families is coming to the Camp Jordan neighborhood. Chick-fil-A restaurant will break ground at Jordan Crossing this fall. Someone involved with the process tells that Chick-fil-A “is taking internal operator applications for the contract on that location. Seems like a done deal."

This, of course, follows the extreme makeover that began when Bass Pro Shop became the flagship business of the Jordan Crossing development. Site work for a new Hampton Inn is underway as well as a new Firehouse Subs and Dunkin’ Donuts about a 1/3 of a mile away. 

Earlier this month, WRCB-TV reported on a $15 million plan to upgrade the sports complex that would include eight new fields, include artificial turf. Such a development would still need the approval of East Ridge City Council and Hamilton County Commission. But momentum seems to be in favor.

When Camp Jordan floods, artificial turf officials have reportedly determined the turf will hold up. According to The Chattanoogan, “Shaw Industries is interested in building a showcase turf field - at a handsome discount - where they can fly university officials from across the country to see an actual product.”
