Work has begun on the demolition of the former Brooks motel and business offices on Governors Drive.
A mixed-use development, including a 100-room hotel, is planned for the site near the I-565 interchange.
The property, some 13 acres of land on Governors Drive near the intersections with 13th and 14th streets, will be developed by The Beach Company, a Charleston, S.C.-based development company.
The development will feature multiple buildings totaling approximately 26,000 square feet of office, retail and dining space in addition to 260 multifamily units, 14 townhomes and a 100-key hotel.
The planned project will complement the nearby Stovehouse development and will feature pedestrian walkways between them.
“This community addition will help continue the momentum of growth along Governors Drive through increased walkability and connectivity,” said Ned Miller, development manager with The Beach Company. “The project was thoughtfully designed to enhance the experience of the growing number of residents and businesses expanding to Huntsville’s flourishing Westside.”
