Melissa Mortimer, historic preservation planner for the Southeast Tennessee Development District, came across the Moore & King Pharmacy building in Chattanooga when it recently went on the market - and she has hopes for what will happen to the building. “I think it could be adaptive reuse for a lot of different commercial options, maybe a really cool retro coffee shop or a frozen yogurt shop. Something of that nature that you could play off the architecture and use that to bring in new life and opportunity for the building,” Mortimer says.
