The Blog


April has been an exciting month! A few eagerly awaited businesses have opened to the public and construction crews are making plenty of progress at other soon-to-open spaces.

As promised, here are a few updates we’ve collected on developing projects and store openings:

Melt—Construction Update

Things are moving along quickly at the upcoming Melt restaurant space. The construction team has been busy building the bones of the eatery and it’s starting to take shape. It’s expected that Melt will open later this year in early July.

Melt’s newest location will serve the same classic comfort food with a modern twist that made its Avondale spot so popular. Guests can also enjoy a full bar offering cocktails, local Huntsville beers, wine, and liquor.

Melt – Huntsville is now on Instagram and you can follow them for future updates @melthsv!

Now Open—Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard

On April 3rd, Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard opened off Highway 72 in Madison!

Warmer weather is around the corner, and we highly suggest giving Rita’s a try. Our office loves trips to the dessert shop for Blendinis and Gelatis—two of our favorites on the menu. There are also several flavors of Italian ice, soft-serve custard, milkshakes, hand-scooped custard, and custard cakes to choose from.

They even have sugar-free options, so there is definitely something for the whole family. And don’t forget about your coworkers and special events! Rita’s offers catering for picnics, birthdays, and corporate events too.

Be sure to give them a follow on Facebook to show support and see what flavors you can try next.


The Moon Bakeshop—Now Open In Downtown Huntsville

When The Moon Bakeshop quietly announced that its doors would be open for a delicious preview of select menu items, people came flooding in to grab a cookie, scone, or savory egg muffin.

Since its soft opening on April 1st, the bakery has quickly gained a loyal following that can’t wait to grab a coffee and morning breakfast sandwich. (Which, by the way, is a scrumptious tower of house-made focaccia bread, egg soufflé, Colby jack cheese, Dukes & Dijon spread, and bacon jam!)

Expect a cozy, inviting atmosphere with comfy armchairs and seating by the window so you can enjoy the sunshine as you sip a cappuccino.

Check out The Moon Bakeshop on Instagram and Facebook to stay up-to-date on their menu and current hours.

Times Plaza—Construction Update

If you haven’t had a chance to see the progress at Times Plaza while driving down the parkway, you may be surprised. (See photos below!)

We’ve already announced several of the tenants that will be joining the development and their projected opening dates:
