Stovehouse - 3414 Governors Drive | 10-acre site | Reuse old stove factory | mixed-use: urban food garden, event and entertainment , restaurants, retail, and office space


Recommended Posts

This is one of my favorite (if not, favorite) projects right now going on in Huntsville.  This development site is a 10-acre reuse of the old Martin Stove manufacturing complex located at Governors Drive just a little west of downtown Huntsville ("West Huntsville" I guess would be appropriate identifier; seems it has been given the moniker "Westside" according to an AL.com article; I like West Huntsville better...JMO).


The project currently is under renovation with plans for dining, entertainment, and work spaces:

  • Owner's are Danny and Patti Yancey who form Stove House Properties and have partnered with Crunkleton Real Estate Group
  • City's first urban food garden
  • Wine and coffee bars
  • Chef-driven restaurants
  • Event spaces for rent
  • Several stages for audiences of 100 (more "intimate" shows)
  • Large events for up to 2,500 in a multi-purpose hall
  • Office space

Old stove factory to be reborn as Huntsville's next big entertainment and dining development

This project joins similar reuse projects in the area, notably, Campus 805 and Lowe Mill Arts & Entertainment.  Campus 805 is the 13-acre development at the confluence of Governors Drive, Clinton Ave, and Triana Blvd.  Campus 805 is anchored by the adaptive reuse of an old high/middle school which contains breweries, restaurants, catering, bars, retail and entertainment venues.  This is a really cool development as well.  I'll post a topic on Campus 805 at some point in the future!


Lowe Mill is another really, really cool reuse development.  Just visited last weekend.  Will share my pictures and make a topic on this location as well!  According to their website, Lowe Mill is the largest privately owned arts facility in the US.  The site is the reuse of an old cotton factory and is located on Seminole Dr just south of Governors Dr, north of Bob Wallace Ave, and west of Pinhook Creek and Memorial Parkway.

This is going to be a great development once it's all complete.  I really like how the city is upgrading 4th Ave between the Stovehouse and Campus No. 805 to create a nice walkway between the two.  This area is fast becoming Huntsville's premier entertainment district.  Word is that a  boutique hotel is coming to the space just west of Stovehouse where the old shopping center was recently demolished.  I would expect some sort of condo/townhouse developments in the area soon too.
