Encore Mid-City

Encore MidCity is an innovative 232-unit multifamily community in a new urbanist setting. Focused on providing the next generation of empty nesters with an attractive alternative to their existing home or more traditional 55+ housing, Encore takes full advantage of the diverse community which surrounds it.

Encore contains four distinct dining components, including a fine dining restaurant featuring produce and fish from a 5,000 sf aquaponic farm on premises adjacent to the kitchen. The restaurants, an art gallery and maker space, and medical office space are fully open to the public. In addition, there is a full suite of wellness offerings and other amenities that are reserved for the residents.

MidCity District is a new $1 billion mixed-use redevelopment in Huntsville, Alabama that will serve as a commercial hub at the epicenter of the 13-county regional trade area. In a region known for STEM jobs and research, this one-of-a-kind, progressive and transformational project sets the stage for continued growth and innovation. Replacing a fortress shopping mall, MidCity is set to become a new social and economic destination at the heart of the Tennessee Valley’s high-tech employment center.

The master plan includes an array of retail, dining and entertainment options. Recreational opportunities include a Top Golf, lakeside activities, fitness centers, a climbing center, bike paths and trails. At its center, a 40-acre public park and 8,500-seat world-class amphitheater will provide a variety of recreation options in addition to shopping and dining. Beyond the public park, a grand event promenade transitions through a series of tree-lined commercial avenues with niche shops, restaurants, a performing arts center and residential-above-retail apartments. MidCity is home to multiple boutique hotels, an additional outdoor performance venue, a neighborhood grocery store, sidewalk cafes, a food hall, and restaurants offering true farm-to-table fare.

Encore is steps away from the town center in the heart of MidCity District. Encore is designed to be welcoming to everyone, while providing private and secure luxury homes for sophisticated leaders in the community. The residents of Encore can take advantage of the extensive MidCity amenities, while Encore’s restaurants, galleries, urgent care center and plaza encourage multigenerational living. The project embraces its vibrant surroundings, offering its residents a lifestyle without compromise.
