Birmingham, Ala. (Aug. 15, 2013) – The Phase III expansion of the Bridge Street Town Centre in Huntsville, Alabama, is underway and includes a new flagship two-level Belk department store, a new parking garage, and approximately 50,000 square feet of additional retail and restaurant buildings. The western portion of the existing lake has been drained and filled in to create the expansion site and a new waterfall feature will be added to define and accentuate the remainder of the lake. Belk and the adjacent new retail buildings will open onto a new “center court” featuring a large green space that can accommodate featured events, displays, and other activities already enjoyed by the Bridge Street patrons.
The new construction will complement the diverse mix of tenants and building types already at Bridge Street, which currently includes nearly 350,000 square feet of retail and restaurant tenants, the Westin Huntsville, the Monaco Pictures theater, and a low-rise office building, as well as 2nd-floor offices in one of the buildings. Dating back to its grand opening in 2007, the centre has undergone continued growth and success, including a 105,000-square-foot power center addition that was also designed by CMH and completed in early 2012. The anxiously awaited completion of this newest phase is expected in fall 2014.
