Governors Drive will soon have more development headed its way with the addition of The Range and The Foundry—two new properties that will usher in more commercial space and a residential component to the neighborhood. Yesterday, city leaders and key players in the project’s creation met to celebrate its official groundbreaking. The event took place at Stovehouse—due to inclement weather—and groups gathered to welcome the newest addition to West Huntsville.
Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate is thrilled to be part of the project and will handle the office and retail leasing for both properties. The sites’ development will be completed by The Beach Company, a group of development experts headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina.
Leaders of the development team said they are excited to be working closely with the City of Huntsville to enhance the vision that began with Danny and Patti Yancey’s Stovehouse revitalization. During the ceremony, The Beach Company’s president and CEO John Darby presented the Yanceys with a $5,000 donation to the Liberty Learning Foundation, a Huntsville-based nonprofit founded by the couple. This gesture of giving is a tradition for The Beach Company because they believe in contributing to the communities they are part of.
Both The Range/The Foundry and Stovehouse will work closely together to create a seamless experience for everyone frequenting the West Huntsville area.
Mayor Tommy Battle also attended the event and commented on his excitement for the project. He said the coming developments will bring more positive change to Huntsville.
Here is a quick look at what’s planned:
The Range & The Foundry
The Range is a new modern office development that will feature approximately 49,000 square feet of Class-A space. Built with comfort in mind, the coming three-story office complex will be adjacent to Stovehouse and its numerous restaurant/entertainment options.
Renderings show that The Range will be a modern steel and glass structure with large windows throughout to enhance natural light. It will also have its own beautiful courtyard on-site with plenty of seating, public wifi, and access to an on-campus café/restaurant that has yet to be named. The Range will help add further connectivity in the West Huntsville neighborhood and maximize the growing entertainment district.
Office users interested in learning more about The Range can contact Eric St. John, CCIM, for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org. It offers a short commute to all of Huntsville’s major areas including Downtown Huntsville, Redstone Arsenal, Cummings Research Park, the medical district, and others. Developers expect the property to be delivered in Q1 2022.
Next to The Range is a planned mixed-use development called The Foundry. This project will include restaurant/retail space, 342 multifamily units, including 14 rentable townhomes. In addition to the retail that is part of the development, future residents of The Foundry will be steps away from Stovehouse and a short walk from nearby Campus 805. Dining and entertainment will always be available, and it will be easy to commute to anywhere in the city.
805 Regal Drive has been home to several Huntsville businesses since its construction in the 1970s. Now, the 12,448 square-foot property is undergoing a major redevelopment to update the site with brand-new storefronts, sleek exterior lighting, paint, signage, updated landscaping, and more. Construction for the project began in May 2021 and is expected to be complete in August.
In October 2020, Iron Tribe Fitness announced it would be making a big move from its original location on Woodson Street to a brand-new facility. The fitness brand’s Huntsville site made plans to relocate to the up-and-coming Lincoln Mill development—an office campus undergoing a major renovation.
