If you’ve ever driven down Highway 11 through Trussville, you’ve come to a point where everything suddenly starts looking super-cute and with an old-fashioned downtown feel. That’s where the entertainment district is located.

More specifically, the 12-acre site is right at the corner of Highway 11 and Chalkville Road. In addition to familiar favorites like the Three Earred Rabbit and Ferus Artisan Ales (the area’s first new tenant), you’ll also find some new favorites like Cookie Dough Magic and The Filling Station, according to TURNERBATSON’s website.

There will be places for community events, including green spaces

A stage

According to TURNERBATSON’s website:

“The central elements of the new entertainment district are the stage and pavilion. The focal point will be a 27-foot wide LED video wall, which will allow the stage to be used year-round for family movie nights, concert simulcasts and screening sports events. The stage will also host city events and large concert performances for up to 2,500 attendees.”

The pavilion sits right in the middle of the event space and provides much-needed shade for events and eating. Bonus: there will be large fans to keep people cool during Alabama’s sweltering summer heat.

Walkable areas with shopping, restaurants + more
