Located at the intersection of U.S. Hwy 278 E and County Road 1616, the Kingfisher subdivision will feature new streets and sidewalks. Community leaders feel that this new neighborhood will serve as a catalyst for more dining and shopping development in the area.
“Cullman County is poised for growth over the next five years, so bringing affordable, quality housing to the market is another way we are able to assist the community with their growth,” said Robert Jolly, founder and CEO of Retail Specialists. “This is our second residential project in Cullman County and is a great example of how we can help in multiple facets of community development – from attracting new retailers, to transforming vacant commercial real estate space, and building new neighborhoods – our team is excited about all of the work happening in the county.”
“With the growth in Cullman County and its proximity to Huntsville and Birmingham, it’s the perfect time to break ground on a new neighborhood,” said Scott Underwood, chief operating officer for Prominence Homes. “Our team is excited to bring high-quality homes to this community.”
The Kingfisher neighborhood is being developed by Retail Specialists, with Sain Associates handling the civil engineering, Meredith Environmental is the site contractor, and Prominence Homes is constructing the new homes.
