The Crash Pad

Greenspaces is developing eco-friendly next-generation homes that could allow residents to never pay an electric bill.  Through solar panels, the homes could produce more energy than the homeowners consume.  The first will be built at 631 Hamilton Avenue on Chattanooga's North Shore.

The Crash Pad isn't exactly what that term might lead you to expect. Located off Main Street on the fashionable south side of the city, The Crash Pad was originally intended as a cheap place for the rock climbers coming to Chattanooga in increasing numbers to stay (relatively cheaply) for a night, but to almost everyone's surprise it attracts as many tourists in the Summer as it does climbers, cyclists and back packers in the Fall and Winter.
