Broad Metro company officials hoisted shovels alongside community leaders to break ground for Village Green at Stadium Trace Village in Hoover.
Village Green, slated to open in 2023, is designed as a family-friendly arts and entertainment district with an amphitheater, pavilion, multi-use bar, outdoor recreation area and spacious lawn.
It’s envisioned as a “single interactive environment that promotes art, culture, sustainability, education and community. Village Green is designed as a community-centric space with the ability to hold larger ticketed events periodically,” Broad Metro said in announcing the project kickoff.
Birmingham-based Broad Metro is the developer, Chambless King Architects is the architect and Gonzalez-Strength & Associates is the landscaper and engineer for the Village Green project.
“This new venue has everyone in the city excited,” says City of Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato. “Hoover is a destination city in Alabama, and Village Green will broaden our citizens’ and visitors’ opportunities for great kid-friendly family entertainment, restaurants and exposure to local artists. Local businesses will benefit from patrons visiting from all over the state.”
