The mixed-use structure is being developed by Bobo Development Group, Retail Specialists, and Boaz Ventures. Capstone Building Corporation has started construction on the development, which is designed and engineered by Williams Blackstock Architects.

“With Huntsville’s current and projected growth, this new project is breaking ground at a perfect time. Arcadia is coming to the market as Huntsville continues a population boom creating demand for housing. The retail and restaurant amenities that will accompany the residential units at Arcadia are ideal for someone that wants to live and work in a high-end development.”

James Bobo, chief executive officer at Bobo Development Group

Residential and commercial units are slated for late 2024, according to a statement from Retail Specialists.

“This development will be a significant one for Huntsville and Cummings Research Park. We hope it acts as a catalyst for continued growth in the area.”

Robert Jolly, chief executive officer of Retail Specialists
