North Valley will include low and high density housing and space for commercial property on the 130-acre site. Here’s what we know:

IMS Development out of Tuscaloosa purchased 130 acres of prime land in North Huntsville from The University of Alabama in Huntsville Foundation. The property, located at the corner of Highway 255, Highway 53, and Blake Bottom Road, provides easy access to downtown Huntsville, the MidCity district, and the Village of Providence.

North Valley is situated within easy commuting distance to Cummings Research Park and Redstone Arsenal, two of the city’s major employment hubs. It is also near the upcoming Northern Bypass that will eventually connect Highway 53 to Highway 72 near Gurley.

Here are some more details on North Valley:

  • North Valley will add 800 residential units to the area, a mix of low and high-density housing.
  • The plan includes 20 acres of commercial land for development, which can be used for big box retailers, hotels, restaurants, convenience stores and entertainment establishments.
  • North Valley will be completed in phases with the goal of creating a conveniently located suburban haven.

“North Valley is not just a development project; it’s an opportunity to create a thriving community that provides residents with an unparalleled living experience while contributing to the growth and prosperity of North Huntsville.”

H. Jackson Wallace, president and COO-Development at IMS

North Huntsville project similar to Tuscaloosa project

The residential portion of North Valley will be similar to another IMS Development project, Beacon Place Tuscaloosa. Beacon Place includes single-story homes available in one and two bedrooms, with some units available with attached garages.

The idea behind the residential layout is that no one lives above or below you, and the apartments feel much more like a house.

“We saw an area of the city that was underserved and believed we could create a project that would enhance the area and introduce new commercial ventures. There are a lot of possibilities that the commercial lots can accommodate, and we are excited to hear from interested parties.”

Greg Wood, president, and COO-Management at IMS
