Get pumped, Pelham! The former Valley Elementary School off Hwy. 31 is currently being redeveloped by Schrimsher Properties. Although it’s just in the early stages, the project will reportedly include a mix of restaurants and brewpubs, as well as retail, office and entertainment space.

The name—Campus No. 124—is a tribute to the last three digits of Pelham’s zip code.

  • Address: 2408 Pelham Pkwy, Pelham, AL 35124
  • Timeline: Currently under construction, planned to open fall 2020
  • Tenants: TBA. Interested in moving your business in? Learn more here.

The Precedent

This new complex is being renovated to mimic the success of Huntsville’s Campus No. 805. This project was headed up by the same developer, and if we know Birmingham metro residents, a similar venue has a good chance of being a slam-dunk.

Big Things in the Works for Pelham

Located down the road from the Pelham Civic Complex and Oak Mountain State Park, this is a prime area for developers to launch a project of this scale.

They’re not the only ones who think so, either. Campus No. 124 is located just a hop, skip and a jump away from The Canopy at Oak Mountian. This project, announced in summer 2019, is a massive mixed-use development that will include residential dwellings, retail, restaurants and more.

All this action could mean a big win for economic development in Pelham and Shelby County—and that has us saying, “Cheers!”
