Mixed-Use Development Planned for Downtown Huntsville
HUNTSVILLE, AL (WZDX) - The landscape of downtown Huntsville is about to change in a big way as a major development project is announced.
The Constellation Development will sit at the corner of Clinton Avenue and Memorial Parkway. The $178 million project will bring two new hotels, office space, apartments, restaurants, shops and two parking decks to the area.
The development is expected to generate $33 million in revenue each year and employ about 1,800 people.
"This property has so much potential. After 44 plans and 10 architects, we are now seeing the culmination of a plan coming out. A plan that can move us into the future," said Huntsville Mayor Tommy Battle.
Developer Scott McLain says construction is expected to begin sometime next year.
