Stadium Trace Village to be Developed in Hoover, Alabama
Stadium Trace Village, a Medical and Retail Center serving the City of Hoover as well as the Greater Hoover/Birmingham, Alabama trade markets, is now under development.
The property will draw a level flow of visitors by offering best-in-category operators among its tenants, including a world-renowned medical center and a market known worldwide and in Alabama (except now it will be closer) for their farm-fresh assortment of organic produce and quality grocery items. The property will also offer experiential stores, restaurants and properly located hotels that may accommodate the community’s visitors for events at the Met Sports Stadium (Home to the SEC Baseball Tournament) and Finley Sports Complex and Convention Center as well as the regionally acclaimed Hoover High School.
The property’s visibility and easy accessibility start with the location providing nearly 1500’ of frontage along I459 (exit 10) and over 2000’ of frontage on Highway 150 (John Hawkins Parkway). The property is then bordered by Stadium Trace Parkway to the east. The grading and infrastructure plans are designed to enhance the natural visibility and access with improved roadways, including traffic signals with additional dedicated turning lanes allowing for easy access for Hoover residents and workers and especially for residents and commuters to Trace Crossings.
Several of the country’s finest developers have worked to provide conceptual plans for a renewed Stadium Trace Parkway entranceway. Improvements to Stadium Trace Parkway will benefit local residents, and any temporary power lines will be moved to permanent locations that will be away from Stadium Trace Parkway. Landscape designs will incorporate the transplanting of native trees along with new specimen trees that will thrive with proper spacing and coordinate with the planned entranceway designs. The trees will shelter winding sidewalks and dedicated paths connecting to a city-designed bicycle plan.
Projected opening date for the development is fourth quarter 2018.
