I noticed they closed the Waffle House just north of Airport on the Parkway already. Haven't even started on the new location farther south.

Any comment on the hullaballoo over the new Walmart on south parkway?

I'm pleased the Aldi in South Huntsville looks like it is almost finished.

Construction on a building, for what I believe will be, for a Duncan Donuts in Jones Valley has begun.

Anybody know what's going to happen to the closed Krystal's building on South Parkway just south of Charlotte Dr?

The closed Hardees building in the Home Depot/Staples shopping center on south parkway just needs to be torn down. I suspect some investment will start happening in that shopping center with the new Grissom moving near there.

From what I have heard, the old waffle house that is now closed down at airport and the parkway is going to be turned into a charging station for electric cars. I believe it's connected to the solar panels that are also there.
