‘Upscale commercial development’ planned for Deerfoot Parkway
By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — An “upscale commercial development” is planned for the corners of Deerfoot Parkway and Husky Parkway in Trussville, according to the land’s owner.
Moore Oil Company president and CEO Ron Moore said nothing is finalized about the future use of the land, which is being cleared.
“We are talking to several national tenants,” Moore said.
Moore said there have been no “deep, serious talks” on the direction of the development.
“There’s a lot of work yet to do there,” he said.
Milam and Company has a permit for clearing the land and for site prep, said Trussville City Clerk Lynn Porter. Porter said a “guess” of the acreage being cleared is about eight acres.
Moore said he hopes the site work, including excavation and drainage, is complete early this spring. He said by the time all the land is cleared, it will likely cover close to 14 acres.
Moore said he is cooperating with NorthPark Baptist Church and Deerfoot Baptist Church, both of which bookend the land that’s being cleared. He said both have been “extremely pleasant to deal with and be neighbors with.”
Moore said Trussville officials have all been helpful so far in the process.
“It’s such a pleasure to deal with Trussville,” he said. “(Mayor) Gene Melton has been outstanding to deal with and his interest in the integrity of the development and the growth of Trussville is just noteworthy.”
