The HEART OF HUNTSVILLE star had fallen by the late 1980s. The mall continued to decline and was knocked down in 2007. A mixed-use complex was proposed. Known as CONSTELLATION, it is depicted in this rendering. Several hurdles would be encountered before its complete implementation could finally get underway.

Over the years, plans would be drawn up and then scrapped. At least two "Constellation" logos would also be created. Above, we see the final plan for the facility. It will join the Springhill Suites Hotel, which opened, as a first phase of the project, in late 2011. Construction on the second Constellation stage commenced in late 2017.
