A new retail development will break ground this spring in Hoover.

Texas-based Altera Development and Birmingham's Economic Development Strategies America are developing The Village at Brock's Gap on 12 acres near Brock's Gap and Stadium Parkway.

Information from Altera Development said The Village at Brock's Gap would be modeled after high-end neighborhood lifestyle centers like ones in Mountain Brook and Vestavia Hills. The development will include O'Henry's Coffees, The Pointe Dance Arts, The Whole Scoop Ice Cream, CakEffect, Tre Luna Restaurant, and Polished Nails & Spa. More tenants will be announced in coming weeks.

According to a press release, Johnson Kreis is the contractor, Gozalez-Strength is the civil engineer, and architects will be Paul Chapel of Paul Chapel and Associates and Fred Keith of AG Gaston Design.

The Village at Brock's Gap will be adjacent to Hoover High School, Trace Crossings Elementary and Bumpus Middle School and close to several large residential developments that are in the works.

SRS Real Estate's Ward Neely is helping lease the new center.

The development is expected to open in the first quarter of 2018.
