(New visuals and timelines announced for transformation of Huntsville’s Historic​ ​Martin​ ​Stove​ ​building on Governors Drive.)

HUNTSVILLE,​ ​Ala.​ ​​–​ ​In September, Stovehouse enticed the public with early sketches of its revitalization plan for the historic Martin Stove building at 3414 Governors Drive. Newly released renderings give an exciting preview of the project. The 200,000-square-foot complex will bring curated restaurant, retail, office and entertainment space to Westside Huntsville’s already burgeoning arts, brewery and cottage-living corridor.

The newest 3D renderings show the bones of the original complex mostly intact, but reveal lush courtyards and open-air alleyways, which were under roof for nearly a century. (continue reading below …)

The “adaptive-reuse” project leverages an ultra-convenient location near I-565, Memorial Parkway and Downtown Huntsville and revives the 1929 building that was once a vibrant community hub.

“From the first time I walked through the huge building, I saw the huge potential,” says Stovehouse Properties owner/developer Danny Yancey. “We’re working with Centric Architecture to preserve the past while building a destination that serves Huntsville today. Where Rome Stove and Martin Stove produced durable goods, we’ll be manufacturing leisure.”

Construction by Joe Still Building Company is moving quickly. By the end of the year, several soon-to-be-announced businesses will move in, and the much-anticipated Food Garden will be operational. The Food Garden (shown facing east, along 9th Street) features innovative restaurants, indoor/outdoor seating, a rooftop wine bar,  family-friendly activities and a dedicated stage for entertainment.

“As a daily destination, we’ll be a go-to for some of Huntsville’s most exciting lunch, dinner, shopping and nightlife,” says Stovehouse’s Steven Jackson. “And the three or four hundred employees on site will be able to balance work, fitness, food and entertainment, without leaving the campus.”

“We already have firm commitments from tenants who will make Stovehouse a unique, high-traffic destination,” says Stovehouse co-developer and leasing agent Wesley Crunkleton of Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group. “Curating the proper tenant mix at Stovehouse is vital, and we are focused on finding the ideal entertainment, retail, restaurant, and office combination to ensure the development thrives.”
