Crestline Village
Mountain Brook, Alabama

Mountain Brook’s village streetscape project grew out of an appeal by merchants for improvements to remain competitive with other local shopping areas. In 1995, the City hired landscape architects Nimrod Long and Associates to design streetscape improvements for three historic retail villages. Part of the city’s original masterplan from the 1920's, each village has evolved a unique character through distinctive architecture, scale, and shops. The goal of the project, established by the merchants and City Council, was to enhance these existing qualities with improved sidewalks, attractive lighting, better parking, and proposals for appropriate infill development to strengthen the villages’ character.

Each village has a feature area that acts as a village center for surrounding neighborhoods. A clock tower was built as a focal point for the heart of Crestline Village, along with a new plaza at City Hall -- both are popular gathering spots for visitors to Crestline’s many shops and restaurants.
