HUNTSVILLE, Ala (WHNT) - Dirt is being moved at the future Polaris site, and a nearby apartment complex's managers are looking forward to the wave of workers coming to the area.

"We're extremely excited to work with the construction workers and the future employees of Polaris," said Damon Kling, resident manager of Limestone Creek apartments, less than a mile away from the future site.

With a 400+ acre tract of land sitting vacant up the street, the people at Limestone Creek knew something big was coming. Now that Polaris has been announced, along with the accompanying jobs, they couldn't be in a better location.

"We're kind of on the corner of Limestone County, there's not much out here yet," said Kling.

Nearby Greenbrier BBQ, closed after a 2013 kitchen fire, is set to reopen this year -- just in time for the influx and boom of residents and business expected in the area over the next two years.

"We're looking forward to working with Polaris and other businesses coming to the area," said Kling.
