2014 has been a big year here at Crunkleton & Associates. Here are just a few of our proudest moments from 2014!

Crunkleton & Associates Joins “The Avenue” Project Downtown

In June of 2014, Crunkleton & Associates announced their involvement with “The Avenue,” a five-story, mixed-use development that will feature 21,000 square feet of street-level restaurant and retail space downtown. In addition to the retail center, the project will also host 193 loft-style apartments and a large on-site parking garage.
Developer Charlie Sealy stated that he believes the project will be “another game-changer for downtown” and we completely agree!
The first phases of the project are scheduled to open in January 2016, and the entire project should be finished by that April.

Crunkleton & Associates Brings New Dining Options To Huntsville

One of our favorite things that we were able to do this year was help facilitate bringing several brand new dining options to Huntsville as part of the Twickenham Square project!

Asian Rim

This Birmingham-based restaurant specializing in Thai food, sushi, Pan-Asian infused cuisine and American fare announced that it would be joining the tenants at Twickenham Square in August and opened its doors for business on Dec. 5th.
Our favorite thing on the menu?  The sushi, hands down!

Cajun Steamer

From a small roadside stand where he dished up recipes he grew up eating in Louisiana, to his brand new 3,000 square foot restaurant here in Huntsville, owner Jeff Thompson has come a long way with his Birmingham-based eatery.
Cajun Steamer, which is scheduled to open in the next month, will feature classic Cajun cuisine such as gumbo, jambalaya, boudin and étouffée, oysters, crawfish and, of course, Po-boys.
Oh and did we mention homemade beignets!? We’re just a little excited about the beignets.

Taco Mama

Taco Mama added its third northern Alabama, and first Huntsville location to Twickenham Square in the fall of 2014, growing from its Mountain Brook and Tuscaloosa locations and the founders couldn’t be more excited. “To now be joining a community like Huntsville, that has boasted so much growth and positivity over the past decade, our team couldn’t ask for anything more,” commented Will Haver, Taco Mama Owner and Founder.
We love the laid back atmosphere and fast service that is perfect for a quick work lunch as well as the freshly prepared tacos, burritos, nachos and Mexican fare.

Chocolate Martini Bar

Chocolate lovers jumped for joy earlier this fall when we announced the fifth and final restaurant that would be joining the Twickenham Square development: Chocolate Martini Bar.
This swanky eatery will be dishing up a wide range of traditional and “liquid desserts” in addition to a full menu of savory items, each with their own unique chocolaty twist.
And while we’re excited about all the delicious chocolate fare, (I mean who doesn’t like chocolate?) it’s the free chair massages the restaurant plans to offer every Wednesday night to anyone who stops in that has us really excited for them to open their doors in the spring of this year!

Crunkleton & Associates Breaks Ground On Their New Offices!

One of the most exciting things for us here at Crunkleton & Associates this year was the ground breaking for our new offices on October 14th of 2014!
Over the last several years, we have been growing and expanding our roster of talented individuals in order to continually provide the best possible service to our clients. All that growth has been amazing for our business but tough on our personal space.
The new 18,000 square foot office complex we will be joining is part of a unique expansion project for legal firm Maynard Cooper & Gale in Huntsville, AL. The law firm will occupy the entire second floor of the building, and Crunkleton & Associates is excited to be sharing the first floor space with GW Jones Properties.
And the best part? Our new building is right across the street from where we are currently located. How’s that for a convenient move?

Crunkleton & Associates Completes Construction and Fully Leases Legacy Marketplace

Announced in early 2014, Crunkleton & Associates completed work on Legacy Marketplace earlier this year and is excited to announce that it has now fully leased the development. Among the tenants are:

  • Dunkin’ Donuts (This location marked the first Dunkin’ Donuts in southeast Huntsville!)
  • Radio Shack
  • Jimmy Johns
  • Legacy Nails
  • And one more mystery tenant that we will be announcing very soon!

Crunkleton & Associates Expands Valley Bend Shopping Center

2014 also brought us the opportunity to help facilitate the expansion of the Valley Bend shopping center in Jones Valley with addition of Kirkland’s and by creating a larger retail space for Fleet Feet Sports.

Crunkleton & Associates Brokers Two Major Land Deals

Crunkleton & Associates was proud to be a part of two major land deals this year.   One for the site of the new Walmart in Hazel Green and the other for the site of the New Veterans Facility.

Crunkleton & Associates Grows Property Management

This year Crunkleton & Associates surpassed the one million square foot mark for properties managed with the addition of three new properties!

Crunkleton & Associates Gives Back

Among out proudest moments in 2014 are the times when we were able to give back to the community by donating to non-profits or sponsoring community events.  Here are just a few of the organizations we were proud to support in 2014 and hope you may consider supporting in 2015.

  • The Huntsville Museum Of Art
  • Downtown Huntsville Inc.
  • The Autism Society of Alabama
  • The Huntsville Hospital Foundation
  • Second Mile Development
