In a chase it may keep the flue gasses higher and give a little better protection in the case of a chimney fire. The other thing that I like about the full refit listed below is that when you are done, you know exactly how it is built.

I replaced the old pipe with triple wall inside the chase and where the old metal fireplace was located I did some re-framing and tile work and built a hearth for my new wood stove. Now it is an attractive traditional wood stove set up. My calculations at the time were that it was roughly the same price as a specialized insert and would provide better heat and a simpler system.

Keeping the flue warmer will reduce creosote and also probably improve the draft.
