The statue is owned by the Berry Family and has been loaned to Liberty Tower for display in the lobby by Jim Berry, president and managing partner of Liberty Tower LLC. Chattanooga's Statue of Liberty replica will become a landmark and lasting memorial. Cast from the original 1878 mold, by decree of the French government, only 12 such statues can be made and this Lady Liberty is the third of four that currently exist.
“We are honored to have the opportunity to share a unique replica of this incredible national monument with our community,” said Berry. “This Statue is an ideal cornerstone for our new building and a dramatic example to businesses nationally and globally that Chattanooga is the community for your business to call home.”
Chattanooga's own Lady Liberty will also welcome visitors to the newly renovated and energy efficient Liberty Tower. Located at 605 Chestnut Street, Liberty Tower features 192,000-plus square feet of Class A office space. The structure has also been completely remodeled as a green office building and is pursuing Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification.
In addition to being energy efficient, Liberty Tower will also make a statement in the nighttime sky with its innovative light emitting diode (LED) system that is energy efficient and customizable. The LED “green” lighting can display a rainbow of colors and even animated sequences to be used on special occasions.
Another key renovation for downtown is an elevated and enclosed pedway spanning Sixth Street that connects Liberty Tower with Liberty Garage.
Key tenants include Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, law firm and the accounting firm of Lattimore Black Morgan & Cain occupying more than 5 floors of the 192,000+-square-foot building.
All tenants of Liberty Tower receive complimentary memberships to The Walden Club for private dining functions. In the future Liberty Park will be developed just across Chestnut Street allowing building occupants to enjoy green space within the urban environment.
“Our goal is to have Liberty Tower set the standard for renovated, energy efficient office space in Chattanooga,” said Berry. “With our own Statue of Liberty as a landmark and the amenities and features that matter to business, we believe this building can show the world what a great place to do business Chattanooga is today.”
