Welcome to Renaissance City Center

Situated on in the beautiful north Alabama region known to locals as The Shoals, Florence has been dubbed “The Renaissance City.” Fittingly, the town has a shopping center bearing the same nickname.

The existing space, formerly a food store, will be demolished to make room for a new structure housing other types of retail. Phase I, including a Hibbett’s and Books-A-Million, will open in late 2011. Phase II, a 54,000 square foot  Publix, will debut in late 2012.

Construction is slated to include an underground storm water retention system with 150,000 cubic feet of retention, a new internal traffic pattern designed for better access to adjoining retail and an upgrade to the roads accessing the property. Onsite infrastructure will include new utilities, landscaping, site lighting and paving.

Join us as we chronicle the development of Florence’s new Renaissance City Center.
