The Manager of Pinnacle Retail, LLC., Jason Jones plans to make the shopping center a community center, according to the Trussville Tribune.
He wants to make the area exactly what the Trussville community and surrounding areas want.
“We want to turn one of those outparcels into a community event space where we can host you know, Movies on the Lawn, and Yoga, and different things to make it a place where people can come and use it and have a place to go.”Jason Jones, Manager of Pinnacle Retail, LLC.
Jones hopes to have more restaurants like a steakhouse or seafood shack, as well as an empty space for first responders to relax, eat and take a break.
Renovations and projects are already in the works including:

- Upgrading all light to LED
