New Mixed-Use Development:

Arcadia Groundbreaking Ceremony Slated for September 12

HUNTSVILLE, AL Bobo Development Group and Retail Specialists are excited to jointly announce a groundbreaking event for Arcadia, a new mixed-use development in Huntsville. The ceremony will be held on Monday, September 12 at 11 a.m.

“With Huntsville’s current and projected growth, this new project is breaking ground at a perfect time,” said James Bobo, chief executive officer at Bobo Development Group. “Arcadia is coming to the market as Huntsville continues a population boom creating demand for housing. The retail and restaurant amenities that will accompany the residential units at Arcadia are ideal for someone that wants to live and work in a high-end development.”

We’re excited to host this groundbreaking in the Rocket City and it’s a project that our team is really proud of.”

Located in the Cummings Research Park, Arcadia sits directly across from the new Alabama School of Cyber Technology at 4810 Bradford Drive, one of the busiest corners in the area. Once built, Arcadia will stand six stories with 12,000 square feet of office, 7,000 square feet of retail and restaurant, and 250 residential units.

“Breaking ground on Arcadia next month is an exciting time for each member of the team we have assembled for this development,” said Robert Jolly, chief executive officer of Retail Specialists.

“This development will be a significant one for Huntsville and Cummings Research Park. We hope it acts as a catalyst for continued growth in the area.”
