The massive makeover of an old Huntsville stove factory is heating up.
Construction of Stovehouse is now at the mid-way point. WZDX got an exclusive look at how this old factory is transforming into restaurants, offices, event space.
What was once a century old factory is well on its way to becoming a carefully curated, work, play, eat and entertainment complex.
“It’s adaptive reuse. It’s taking an old building and converting it to a new use,” explained Danny Yancey owner of Stovehouse.
Wednesday our cameras got an exclusive tour of the recent additions to the 226,000 square foot Stovehouse development. The Food Garden is the Hub of Stovehouse. It’s where guests can enjoy live music on an outdoor stage, play games and great cuisine.
“We’re going to have a total of nine restaurants, on campus when we’re complete. We’re still really in the first phase of this project, so as we continue to phase the project out, we’re going to have more restaurants coming on line,” said Yancey.
Mazzara’s Italian Kitchen and Pourhouse rooftop wine bar, are expected to open in two weeks. Office and retail space is already being leased at Stovehouse. The complex will also have event venues that can be rented out.
“One is called the Royal, it’s 10,000 sq. ft. space. We’re designing for wedding and corporate events,” he added.
The massive makeover should be complete in 24 months. Once it’s open, Stovehouse is anticipated to heat up west Huntsville.
“I really think it’s going to help on this west side. It’s really needing revitalization. So our mission is to revitalize the west side of town,” Yancey said.
