Imagine that special neighborhood where people and places are more important than cars. For over a decade, the Village of Providence has set a new standard of living in Huntsville, providing a real, pedestrian friendly neighborhood, in an idyllic, traditional setting. A few short steps away from some of the most beautifully constructed homes and townhomes in the area as well as a variety of award-winning restaurants, fashionable boutiques, retail shops, and local businesses. At the Village of Providence, residents can be right in the middle of the action without even setting foot into their cars.
The 305-acre Village of Providence, designed in a 2002 and completed in 2014, wraps around an existing apartment complex and includes two waterways that form a natural greenway in the midst of the community.
Providence’s village center was built at a greater density and intensity than was originally designed, due to the pent-up, previously undiscovered demand for mixed-use urbanism in the area. The center was originally planned for two-story buildings—but now has up to five stories of mixed-use development. A five-lane suburban artery has been converted to a main street with on-street parking and a center tree-lined median.
An eclectic nightlife, previously unknown in this part of Huntsville, has taken root in the village center, which is now the city’s most vibrant and inclusive entertainment destination. The suburban retrofit also includes one of the most racially diverse elementary schools in the city—a school that draws students from areas surrounding the new village.
Living prices in The Village of Providence begin at $700 per month for apartment living and town home prices begin in the mid 200's with single family properties ranging into the millions. The National Association of Home Builders named The Village of Providence the 2014 Community of the Year.
