Encore Mid-City

Encore Mid-City

Encore Mid City is a 240-unit Independent Living community in a new urbanist setting. Focused on providing the next generation of seniors with an attractive alternative to their existing home or more standard senior housing, it takes full advantage of the diverse community which surrounds it.

It 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. Residents can dine at any of the venues using a declining balance account which comes with their rental unit. The restaurants and an art gallery and maker space are fully open to the public, as well. In addition, there is also a full suite of wellness offerings and other amenities that are reserved for the residents.

MidCity Huntsville is a new $350 million brownfield redevelopment that will serve as a commercial hub. 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 vacant indoor shopping mall, MidCity is set to become a new social and economic destination for the region. 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 38-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 east through a series of tree-lined commercial avenues with niche shops, restaurants, a performing arts center and residential-above-retail apartments. The area is home to a boutique hotel, an additional outdoor performance venue, sidewalk cafes, a food hall, and restaurants offering true farm-to-table fare. Encore is steps away in the MidCity Residential District. Encore was designed to be welcoming to the community while providing a safe and secure home for seniors. Seniors can take advantage of the extensive MidCity amenities, while Encore’s restaurants, galleries, medical center and plaza encourage multigenerational activity. The project embraces its lively surroundings, selling that convenience as a feature.
