HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Crews began demolition on Madison Square Mall on Monday. The process will take up to six months, and then a new mixed use development will be built in its place.

RCP Companies is developing MidCity Huntsville, part of which could be open by the end of this year.  The entire project should be finished by 2021.

MidCity is just one of many “live, work, play” communities taking shape throughout the area. Will these residential “eat, play, do” models be sustainable or will their name be mud?

From CityCentre to Town Madison, we will update you on several of these projects tonight on WHNT News 19 at 10:00 p.m.
