BIRMINGHAM, AL – Retail Specialists, the premier commercial real estate firm in the Southeast, has announced the groundbreaking for a new residential development, Woodland Trails, in Bessemer, Alabama. The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for March 8 at 10:30 a.m.

Located in the city of Bessemer and Jefferson County at the end of Headrick Road, 159 homes are slated for the Woodland Trails development. Homes are estimated to sell for $269,000 to $299,000. Prominence Homes has been selected as the home builder for the development.

“Bessemer is poised for growth over the next five years, so the Woodland Trails neighborhood will satisfy the growing demand for workforce housing in Jefferson County,” said Robert Jolly, founder and CEO of Retail Specialists.

“A new neighborhood like Woodland Trails will help attract more retail and commercial development in the community.”

The Woodland Trails subdivision will feature new streets and sidewalks and community leaders feel that this new neighborhood will serve as a catalyst for more dining and shopping options in the area.

“Bessemer and West Jefferson County continue to be an area where new businesses and distribution facilities are being built and opened,” said Scott Underwood, chief development officer for Prominence Homes. “Prominence Homes is committed to building affordable, high-quality homes and we look forward to being part of the Bessemer community.”

The Woodland Trails neighborhood is being developed by Retail Specialists, with Sain Associates handling the civil engineering, site work by Carcel & G Construction, financing by First Bank, and construction of new homes by Prominence Homes.

Woodland Trails is one of eight residential developments under construction by Residential Specialists. Developments are located throughout Alabama in Bessemer, Calhoun County, Cullman County, Madison County, and Robertsdale, and one project in Jackson, Mississippi. Developments range in size from 125-285 lots and will be phased over several years.
