There’s a new property on the market in Downtown Huntsville that could soon be the area’s next go-to restaurant, entertainment venue, fitness studio, soft goods retail, or modern office space. This week, we want to hear from YOU about what you’d like to see there!

113 Clinton Avenue W has had an interesting history throughout the years from serving as a wagon depository in the 1920s, Ozburn – Abston Co. in the 1930s, and the location of Miller Appliance from the 1960s to late 1990s. Most recently, it was a home office for a local tech company, and the future of the building looks bright.

Clinton Avenue has become a main retail artery in the Downtown area, housing many of the city’s well-known shops and local haunts. Shops at Clinton Row range from independent jewelry designers to flower shops, gift stores, vintage records, women’s clothing, accessories, and much more. And its garage space sometimes converts into the perfect setting for local bands to play to passersby.

Nearby the property is also The Garage at Clinton Row, a redevelopment project that transformed 15 parking spaces inside a 40-year-old parking deck into retail sites that include women’s clothing, men’s wear, and a consistently busy craft coffee shop. It’s also hard to forget Clinton Avenue’s string lights that dangle overhead and glow at night, making it a beautiful destination for date nights and weekend outings.

But that’s not all that’s on this Downtown avenue. Families flock to the second-floor arcade bar, Pints & Pixels, to indulge in an evening of retro gaming, burgers, cocktails, beer, and chili. And with The Mercantile music venue on the way, the street is only becoming more exciting and vibrant.

Close by, visitors to Huntsville can enjoy a stop at the 127 Holmes Avenue mixed-use development where Moe’s Original Bar B Que serves up Southern goodies like pulled pork, smoked chicken, and ribs.

113 Clinton is in the middle of all the growing action!

Located Near 106 Jefferson Curio By Hilton Hotel

One of the best features of the site is its closeness to the coming Curio by Hilton boutique hotel. Its location puts it in the perfect spot to serve all of the guests staying at the 117-room facility.

People need only to walk out the back door and across the alley to 113 Clinton where the future tenant will be. Imagine a restaurant dishing out delicious Italian or Mexican cuisine when travelers are ready to explore the city. Of course, the possibilities of what could go into the space are endless when it comes to dining and retail. (Feel free to suggest places below!)

However, it could also be a great, unique office space for any business looking to locate itself Downtown on a high-traffic street. Any company that moves in will be close to shopping, dining, retail, and more. Plus, it’s only a block from the Clinton Avenue parking garage, which means plenty of spaces for employees and visitors’ cars. (If you know a business that may be interested, let us know!)

There’s also a plan to activate the alleyway that lies behind the hotel and connects with 113 Clinton. The new, attractive path will be a beautiful walkway that leads directly to Big Spring Park from The Avenue apartments on Jefferson Street. It will cut beside 113 Clinton and behind the Curio, making Downtown even more accessible to pedestrians who are looking to dine, shop, and stroll.

It’s In The Details

A 5,000-square-foot space, 113 Clinton is versatile when it comes to future use. It also has plenty of features already in play that gives it a character all its own and makes it an eye-catching property.

As is, the space embraces exposed-brick accents and an open ceiling that match the popular industrial vibe many business owners are seeking. There’s currently a mix of private office spaces, open space, built-in workstations, and a ready-to-use server room.

However, the interior can easily be fit to match retail concepts as well. There’s plenty of room to create a jaw dropping dining destination, wellness salon/spa, fitness studio, or even an entertainment space for games and family fun. The potential of the space leads to some exciting brainstorming!

What Do You Want To See?

Now that you know a little more about the property, what is it you’d like to see here? Is there a type of restaurant or cuisine you want to see Downtown? What about a Pilates studio or wellness spa? How about clothing or soft goods? An entertainment concept? We’d love to hear your suggestions below.

Obviously, the space is also ideal for an office tenant and we welcome everyone to share this post with businesses and entrepreneurs that you believe would be a perfect fit for busy and convenient Downtown Huntsville.

We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
