Huntsville, Ala. — Watkins Real Estate Group has signed a 45,600-square-foot lease with Publix Super Markets Inc. to anchor The Pinnacle at Providence, a 59,600-square-foot retail center under development in Huntsville’s Providence neighborhood.
The Atlanta-based retail and multifamily development company acquired the 9.2-acre site in 2016 and recently secured construction financing through BB&T Corp. In addition to Publix, the tenant lineup includes Courtney Murray DDS, Allure Nails Spa and an additional 9,800 square feet of shop space. Watkins is pursuing other retail, dining and service tenants to fill the remaining space. The Pinnacle at Providence is slated for completion in early 2018.
