Hillside Street Neighborhoods

Hillside Streets Aerial Plan & Block Diagram

Chattanooga’s hillside neighborhoods have different street and block patterns from the valley neighborhoods. Streets follow the contours of the hills and twist and turn up, down and along the hill sides. Uphill and downhill lots are very different with houses located based on access and slope conditions. Each street is unique and can be very picturesque due to the sloping land and varying placement of houses.

Hillside Street neighborhoods include North Chattanooga, Hill City and Riverview.

Hillside Street Example

Hillside streets follow the flow of the topography, making for a loosely connected network of blocks. Houses sit above or below the street depending on the slope, and are set on irregularly-shaped lots. Vehicles are often parked on the street because garage access is difficult.
