“Big City Life, Small Town Living.”
That’s the slogan of the 2014 Best in American Living Community of the Year winner, The Village of Providence in Huntsville, Ala.
From its fountain in the town square to its growing list of award-winning restaurants, fashionable shops and boutiques and other amenities, this development set out to create a neighborhood with both modern conveniences and culture, but also the charm and values of traditional Southern life.
And within walking distance. Developed by Placemaker’s and designed by the world-renowned land planners at the firm Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, Providence provides the things people love about city life, but in a pedestrian-friendly environment.
Providence is also conveniently built proximate to many of the major landmarks that constitute Huntsville’s biggest employers.
But the most important part, the housing itself, is what really sets Providence apart. The options suit every lifestyle—from estate homes, cottages and townhomes to flats, lofts and rental units, in a variety of locations throughout the community. Housing caters to everyone from first-time home buyers to those looking for a place to retire.
Businesses in the Village of Providence accommodate virtually every need a resident could have, from world-class dining options, to internationally recognized hotels and retailers, to everyday essentials, such as pharmacies and medical offices.
Providence continues to build hundreds of new homes, open new restaurants, offer more entertainment, produce record sales by local businesses, and provide an unmatched quality of life.
After ten years, it’s easy to see why so many people call Providence home.
