Former TreeTop Family Adventure site purchased by Capstone EAT LLC

According to the Birmingham Business Journal, Capstone EAT LLC—an affiliate of Capstone Real Estate Investments LLC—purchased the nearly six-acre property at 1017 Dunnavant Valley Road in Chelsea earlier this month for $1.5M. Until 2020, the site was home to TreeTop Family Adventure—a longtime family amusement park with a go-cart speedway, laser tag, mini golf and more.

Now, the new owners—Mike Mouron of Capstone Real Estate Investments LLC and Nick Pihakis of Pihakis Restaurant Group—plan to develop the property as restaurant space for several popular Birmingham restaurants.

Rodney Scott’s BBQ, Little Donkey and Hero Doughnuts coming to Chelsea

As reported by the Birmingham Business Journal, the first section of the property includes an 18,500-square-foot building that will eventually house Rodney Scott’s BBQ, Little Donkey and a common bar area. In the adjacent, second section of the property, a 2,353-square-foot building will house Hero Doughnuts. Finally, the development will include a common outdoor dining area.

According to Capstone Real Estate Investment, LLC, the project will kick off in the next two or three months and is expected to be complete after a year.
