If you drove down Pratt Avenue earlier this year, you may have noticed one of the street’s older properties beginning to change. What was once a simple beige building is now a modern office space that houses Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate and its eleven full-time employees!
When searching for a new home, founders Wesley and Richard Crunkleton wanted a spot that would be close to downtown Huntsville’s many amenities, be easily accessible to clientele, provide lots of space for staff, and allow for future growth.
Wesley, a seasoned developer, saw the potential as he drove past the old building on Pratt Avenue.
Outside, the once bland exterior has been updated with a sleek new design that incorporates stylish black-frame store fronts, trex decking installed vertically—wrapping the front of the building—and an entrance tunnel constructed of cedar.
The property allows for easy solo and collaborative work thanks to the addition of several private offices and plenty of room for meetings.
The company moved into the space in late June once construction was completed. Since then, everyone has felt right at home in their new office and has enjoyed its flexibility, atmosphere, and design.
In addition to private offices, there are also two conference rooms, a lobby, spacious lounge area, and kitchen/dining space. One of the most distinctive features stands at the center of the main room—a TV display designed with wood panels that adds an artistic touch to the overall aesthetic.
The conference rooms include sleek technology that connects to control systems via iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. (Thank you to Mozaic Audio Video Integration.) They are also equipped with DIRTT media walls and Gauzy glass for private gatherings.
We are very thankful to be here and we look forward to the many years ahead of serving Huntsville and the surrounding areas from our home base at 300 Pratt Avenue NE.
Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate is thrilled to announce the addition of its newest team member, Walker Purvis. He joined the company earlier this year and has focused his efforts on the leasing and brokerage of office opportunities. A University of Alabama graduate with a consumer sciences degree, Walker has a broad knowledge of the consumer market. He’s excited to bring his past sales experience to Crunkleton.
“Overall, we believe 2021 will be a positive year for commercial real estate and the economy as a whole. We are blessed to live and work in the Huntsville/Madison market and know the future is bright for all of us.” Those were the final words of our annual report in 2020, and I am happy to say we got that one right—despite all the obstacles that were put in the way of the U.S. economy.
