    Are these drawings what the buildings will actually look like? There have been so many different renderings of the “new downtown” over the years of what things will look like that it has been hard to believe we are finally going to get the updates done. I am so excited that I might actually live to see this project done!

    In the past, you’ve often seen several artist renderings of what downtown “could” look like depending on a potential developer’s interest. All of the drawings in today’s stories have been approved by the specific developers of these projects. While design often evolves during the building process and changes are sometimes made out of necessity, these renderings are probably pretty close to the final product.

    That looks nothing like Hoover.

    Jennifer Chinnis Lawley glad you said it first. Hoover has nothing like this aside from maybe the corner that is; The Preserve.

    Pretty sure Ian Maddox is not a lady, and I’d love to hear your reasoning behind this, that is if you actually have an argument.

    Mike, there’s plenty of room for you outside of Hoover and Trussville city limits. Don’t let the door hit ya on your way out.

    My only concern is traffic control and traffic flow to ensure safety of pedestrians. Right now Highway 11 is a parking lot certain times a day. Then other times get out of the way it a raceway.

    They never think about that until it’s too late. All they see is $$$

    Hoping to see these changes come to fruition in my lifetime!

    There will be three ways to enter highway 11, all three with traffic lights. Chalkville Rd will not be alone anymore.

    Once again…please let’s get those awful Serta Mattress signs off the Braden Building now! They look awful.

    Tax revenue is good for the city’s budget until you have to address the additional traffic. I don’t see that being addressed.

    I’m glad to see this moving forward; however, I have deep concerns over traffic. Highway 11/ Main Street cannot hold anymore traffic, especially in train delays and peak times. When the train blocks S Chalkville Road, there is a mosh pit in the turn lane between downtown and Waterson Parkway. Add in trying to get in/out of businesses across traffic and it is a nightmare. It takes hours to relieve traffic. Now we add an entertainment venue in the same area (which I support). The only solution is another bridge over the railroad. Is that planned? Extra roads on the north side of the railroad won’t help this problem without more “smart” traffic lights to sense traffic.

    280 want have nothing on Hwy 11 for long. The Roads need attention before a Damn Brewery.

    Due to the gridlock on Hwy11, when will it be widened to at least a turn lane from Mohawk to Camp Coleman?

    Just wish they would finish something they start.
