  • Project: New Building, The Foundry B & D

Feeling déjà vu? You’re not alone. We previously wrote about The Foundry at Stovehouse when it was announced that Charleston-based The Beach Company had broken ground on two exciting developments in Huntsville—The Range and The Foundry. Now, two of the permits needed for The Foundry to move forward have been approved.

Located to the west of downtown Huntsville, The Foundry is a brand-new mixed-use development in Huntsville. Residents will have easy access to all the fun activities in the area, including The Stovehouse (an old factory transformed into a complex with live music, restaurants and event spaces) and Campus 805 (the home for some of Huntsville’s favorite breweries). Once complete, The Foundry will have 342 multifamily apartments (including 14 rentable townhouses), a restaurant, retail spaces and more.
