Pinnacle at Tutwiler Farm
The Colonial Pinnacle at Tutwiler Farm is a 75 acre, 446,000 square-foot, $100 million shopping center in Trussville which opened on October 11, 2006. The center was developed by Colonial Properties Trust on land previously distinguished by a rocky hillside. Nearby is the Promenade at Tutwiler Farm, also developed by Colonial.
Anchor tenants include Belk and JC Penney (who relocated their existing stores from Century Plaza). Other tenants include Best Buy, Ann Taylor Loft, Chico's, Buckle, American Eagle Outfitters, Jos. A. Banks, Children's Place, Justice for Girls, Portrait Innovations, Learning Express, New Balance, Kay Jewelers, and New York & Co. Local retailers are A Rabbit's Tale, Bama Fever/Tiger Pride, and Accessory Heaven. Outparcels include restaurants Logan's Roadhouse, Cajun Steamer, and Red Robin Gourmet Burgers.
Belk operates two separate stores in the complex, their original store, and one they acquired from Parisian, a 2-story structure on the eastern end of the shopping center, which was designed to be the Birmingham-based chain's new prototype. While the center was under construction, Belk acquired Parisian, and is obligated to operate both of their two anchor department stores at the shopping center.
The Courtyard by Marriott Birmingham Trussville hotel is also part of the complex.
In October 2013, the Trussville City Council authorized Mayor Gene Melton to purchase 2 parcels of land from the center's developer for $1.45 million. Trussville plans to construct an extension of Valley Road between Tutwiler Farm subdivision and I-59 into the shopping center at the eastern end on Roosevelt Boulevard.
