The Grove is a residential and shopping development under construction at the intersection of Interstate 459 and Alabama Highway 150 in Hoover. The $100 million, 634,000 square foot retail center is expected to open in October 2009.
With the announcement of the sale, it was also announced that Target, Lowe's, Kohl's, and Best Buy would be anchors for the shopping center. Additional tenants announced since then include Books-A-Million and Compass Bank. In February 2009 the developers announced Petco, Chik-Fil-A and Superior Bank as additional tenants.
72 acres has been reserved for residential development, but no definitive plans have been announced.
