RCP Companies announced the opening of the first phase of The Shops at Merchants Walk located in Huntsville, Alabama. The property features 90,000-sq. ft. of shopping and dining experience, including the only Whole Foods Market in North Alabama along with high-end shopping options. The development extends Parkway Place retail node and connects it to the Central Business District.
“The Shops at Merchants Walk is a catalyst development that connects new retailers to the Huntsville Central Business District, affluent Huntsville neighborhoods, North Alabama’s regional medical hubs and beyond,” states Max Grelier, executive VP for RCP Companies. “It is with great anticipation that we finally welcome Whole Foods to Huntsville. When coupled with other sought-after retailers, the center fills a void for high-end shopping and polished casual dining options that has been long overdue in this area.”
The tenant line-up is nearing completion at 90% occupancy. In addition to the Whole Foods Market, other retailers opening include: lululemon athletica showroom, Farm Burger, Spa Sydell, Mountain High Outfitters, Maki Fresh, Orangetheory Fitness, Local Taco, The Masters Aveda Salon and DressUp Boutique.
