Millrook, a city just north of Montgomery, is getting not one but two big developments. The Fields at 17 Springs has opened its first phase, and the Grandview Plaza has broken ground. Here’s what you need to know.
The Fields at 17 Springs in Millbrook
A huge multi-sports facility in Millbrook was announced in July 2020 according to Elmore Autauga News. Since then, the community has been eagerly awaiting its completion.
On Tuesday, August 15, The Fields at 17 Springs held the Phase I ribbon cutting to celebrate its official opening. Here’s what Phase I includes:
- 12 tennis courts
- 12 pickleball courts
- 4 multipurpose turf fields
- 1 grass field
Phase II will include an additional multipurpose field with an event venue and stadium, a competition track and six baseball/softball diamonds. On top of that, there will be an indoor event space called The Fieldhouse.
But it doesn’t stop there. The Marketplace at 17 Springs has an ambitious master plan, featuring a mixed-use development, retail, restaurants, hotels, a conference center and offices adjacent to The Fields at 17 Springs.
The 17 Springs development, located off AL-14 in Millbrook, is the result of collaboration among the City of Millbrook, Elmore County Commission, Grandview Family YMCA, Elmore County Economic Development Authority and the Elmore County Board of Education.
FUN FACT: The name 17 Springs comes from the name of a Millbrook art festival that was held at the YMCA property many years ago.
The new Grandview Plaza in Millbrook
Nearby the new 17 Springs development, a new shopping center is popping up—Grandview Plaza. The new development’s biggest tenant will be a new Publix. According to WFSA, the Publix is expected to open mid-2024. In addition, the shopping center will feature retail space and outparcels.
Grandview Plaza will be located at Kelley Boulevard and AL-14, on the southwest corner.
“This development is one of the many exciting things happening in Millbrook. Grandview Plaza will bring growth, jobs, and overall economic development to Elmore County. ECEDA looks forward to its completion in 2024!”Elmore County Economic Development Authority—posted on Facebook
