Centrally​ ​located​ ​to​ ​many​ ​of​ ​Huntsville’s​ ​major​ ​highlights,​ ​STOVEHOUSE​ ​will​ ​include​ ​the​ ​city’s​ ​first permanent​ ​urban​ ​food​ ​garden,​ ​along​ ​with​ ​gourmet​ ​wine​ ​and​ ​coffee​ ​bars​ ​and​ ​several​ ​chef-driven restaurant​ ​concepts.​ ​In​ ​addition​ ​to​ ​flexible​ ​event​ ​spaces,​ ​STOVEHOUSE​ ​will​ ​have​ ​multiple​ ​stages, which​ ​adjust​ ​to​ ​host​ ​audiences​ ​of​ ​100​ ​for​ ​intimate​ ​shows​ ​and​ ​up​ ​to​ ​2,500 attendees​ for large events​ ​in​ ​its​ ​multi-purpose​ ​hall.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the rich culture of Westside,”​ ​says​ ​property​ ​owner Danny​ ​Yancey. “We’re intentionally building STOVEHOUSE to be a destination that nourishes community. At any given time we’ll have folks relaxing at the rooftop wine bar, eating together in the garden and restaurants, gathering around live music, celebrating life’s big events and playing games on the lawn. They can even choose to work in what we think will be the coolest office space in Huntsville,” he says.

Dating​ ​back​ ​to​ ​1929,​ ​the​ ​factory​ ​was​ ​home​ ​to​ ​both​ ​Rome​ ​and​ ​Martin​ ​stove companies​ ​and​ ​employed​ ​thousands​ ​in​ ​the​ ​surrounding​ ​neighborhoods.​ For the new STOVEHOUSE development, ​owners Danny and​ ​Patti​ ​Yancey chose an adaptive reuse approach—opting to preserve much of the building’s original character while also eliminating the need for total demolition. The result will revive​ a​ ​vibrant community centerpiece​ and add to the revitalization already underway in Westside.

“We’re​ ​excited​ ​to​ ​help bring​ ​this​ ​development​ ​to​ ​life,”​ ​said​ ​Wesley​ ​Crunkleton,​ ​principal​ ​at​ ​Crunkleton and​ ​co-developer​ ​of​ STOVEHOUSE.​ ​“Its​ ​close​ ​proximity​ ​to​ ​downtown,​ ​I-565,​ ​and​ ​Redstone​ ​Arsenal will​ ​make​ ​it​ ​the​ ​ideal​ ​hub​ ​for​ ​businesses,​ ​first-to-Alabama​ ​restaurant​ ​concepts,​ ​new entertainment​ ​and​ ​events.​ ​This​ ​unique​ ​project​ ​is​ ​already​ ​underway,​ ​and​ ​we​ ​plan​ ​to​ ​announce the​ ​first​ ​confirmed​ ​tenant​ ​very soon.”  

Like​ ​the​ ​companies​ ​that​ ​prospered​ ​in​ ​the​ ​location​ ​nearly​ ​a​ ​century​ ​ago,​ ​STOVEHOUSE leverages​ ​local​ ​experts​ ​and​ ​regional​ ​collaborators​ ​to​ ​execute​ ​its​ ​vision.​ ​Huntsville’s​ ​Crunkleton Commercial​ ​Real​ ​Estate​ ​Group,​ ​Nashville-based​ ​Centric​ ​Architecture,​ ​Chattanooga’s​ ​Strauss Company​ ​General​ ​Contractors​, Bank Independent of Huntsville and​ ​Stovehouse​ Marketing​ ​make​ ​up​ ​the​ ​team​ ​of​ ​adaptive​ ​reuse and​ ​authentic​ ​experience​ ​partners​ ​that​ ​will​ ​bring​ ​STOVEHOUSE​ ​to​ ​life​ ​and​ ​solidify​ ​Westside​ ​as​ ​a destination​ ​for​ ​locals​ ​and​ ​tourists​ ​alike.
