When Stone Fort Land Company and Osborne Enterprises, including the Osborne Building
Corporation were both purchased by Bob Corker in early 1999, it constituted the
convergence of two of the oldest and most influential real estate companies in Chattanooga.
When Henry Luken purchased the Corker Portfolio including his management company,
The Corker Group, in January 2006, the name changed to Luken Holdings but the tradition
of unparalleled excellence and commitment to Chattanooga has stayed its course.
The legacy is rich and deeply steeped in Chattanooga history. Under the ownership
of J.T. Lupton and his successors, Stone Fort Land Company played a key role in
the commercial development of downtown Chattanooga. Its history can be traced back
to 1886; making is one of the oldest, if not the oldest, continually operating companies
in Chattanooga. The company also pioneered the concept of the industrial park and
developed the city’s first, along Amnicola Highway. In partnership with L&N Railroad,
the company developed the old downtown rail station, now the location of the Krystal
and Tallan Buildings. Like Stone Fort Land Company, Osborne was also responsible
for promoting substantial economic growth for Chattanooga through several significant
commercial developments. Founded in 1936 by Weldon F. Osborne, the company’s first
focus was home building. However, the 1949 construction of Osborne Shopping Center
in East Ridge not only constituted the company’s transition into commercial real
estate; it was the first shopping center in the state of Tennessee. Much as the
Stone Fort Land Company and Osborne Building Corporation were committed to developments
that would foster greater economic opportunity for Chattanooga, Luken Holdings is
also dedicated to continuing each company’s history of positive growth and the long
tradition of commercial and economic development established by each company over
the past century.
