A Publix will open Wednesday morning in downtown Huntsville, the latest development in the Twickenham Square project.

Twickenham Square is a $100 million project right near Huntsville Hospital, and Wednesday morning's grand opening of the Publix is just the beginning.

In early March, city leaders cut the ribbon on Homewood Suites. Apartments, office space and some new restaurants will also be a part of the Square. The project is really being pegged as a live-work-play development.

Mayor Tommy Battle will attend the Publix grand opening on Wednesday.

With more jobs coming to town, the need for places for people to shop and live will only grow.

In the past six months, over a half dozen companies have announced thousands of new job opportunities in the Rocket City. Remington alone will bring 2,000 jobs to Huntsville. With that type of influx, more grocery stores, places to live, restaurants etcetera will come with it.

The Constellation project is in the works as well. It will also be located close to downtown and is set to feature a hotel, apartment, places to shop and restaurants, so it's easy to see with these new jobs comes a new type of growth in the Rocket City.
