The Garage Adds Outdoor Speaker System By Mozaic Audio Video

If you visited The Garage at Clinton Row this holiday season, you may have noticed the cheerful Christmas music filling the air while shoppers hopped from store to store.

Crunkleton is happy to share that a new permanent speaker system was recently installed to the exterior of the retail center and will continue to enhance the shopping experience year-round through a sleek, stylish system designed by Mozaic Audio Video Integration.

Michael Johnson, CEO of Mozaic, led the installation and said the new system will give retailers the ability to control music from a variety of sources.

“It’s nice to have the added ambiance while visiting the boutiques,” stated Michael. “Downtown Huntsville has been good to us and being part of The Garage is very rewarding. We hope everyone enjoys the music as they browse the shops.”

Now that the holidays are over, the speakers will tune in to a variety of modern playlists that will help set the tone for a leisurely shopping experience.

“The addition of the new speaker system will help us build the right atmosphere when shopping at The Garage,” explained Wesley Crunkleton, developer of the property. “Music can set the pace for an enjoyable retail experience, and that’s what we strive to deliver.”

Mozaic AV—An eye for design

With 13 years of AV experience already under his belt, Michael envisioned a new way to improve the quality and design of audio/visual installations. After much planning and preparation, he opened Mozaic Audio Video Integration. His background in graphic design allowed him to create one-of-a-kind systems—both aesthetically pleasing and user-friendly.

“Mozaic is made up of specialists from a variety of backgrounds,” explained Michael. “We are a team of artists, craftsmen, and designers that look at projects with a different set of eyes. Our various skillsets help us deliver systems and setups that are simple, elegant, and clean. Don’t get me wrong; we are definitely AV nerds. But we put a different spin on things.”

Overcoming aesthetic challenges

A three-year-old business, Mozaic has had its hands on several major projects downtown, as well as many commercial, residential, and personal assignments. After designing AV systems for Elitaire Boutique and Roosevelt & Company: Gentleman’s Supply, the next step was setting up a sound system for the development as a whole.

“There are always challenges to overcome when designing a new audio video system,” said Michael. “It’s important for us to expand our definition of a job well done. You can’t narrow your focus to only sound or image quality; you have to consider how it works and how people will interact with it. If a system is unreliable or hard to use, whether it sounds or looks good is of little use. Design is not just how something looks and sounds—to quote Steve Jobs, ‘design is how it works.’”

Mozaic creates customized systems that can be completely hidden from view—something that interior designers have expressed thanks for in past projects.

“One of our more recent assignments was the audio/video design for Crunkleton’s office,” said Michael. “In regards to that project, we had several specific parameters we had to work within. The Crunkleton office has a glass panel wall, and the challenge was hiding all of the electronics. In the end, we delivered an impressive setup that works very well with the space.”

Adapting to changing technology

Michael stressed that in order to be successful in the audio/video industry, you have to have knowledge beyond standard equipment. Experts need to understand network solutions, climate control, lighting control, and energy efficiency—all areas that Mozaic has tackled.

“These days, everyone wants to be able to control systems via iPhones, iPads, and Android devices,” assured Michael. “We create systems that connect with those electronics while tailoring the look to each client’s needs.”

Because technology is constantly evolving, the team at Mozaic is always busy learning new methods to stay ahead.

“Changing electronics and tech make things more difficult, yes,” said Michael. “But we love doing the hard work and delivering on the promises we make to our clients. Seeing the customer’s face when we exceed their expectations is why we do what we do.”

A Downtown Transformation Creates Retail Synergy In An Unlikely Location

Our company is passionate about Downtown Huntsville.

Which is why we couldn’t be more excited to announce a brand new adaptive-reuse development for Downtown Huntsville: The Garage At Clinton Row.

Clinton-Row--Garage-4

Over the years, we’ve had the personal pleasure of living and working in the Downtown Huntsville area, partnering with organizations such as Downtown Huntsville Inc. to help sponsor and promote the revitalization of Downtown Huntsville and spearheading the leasing for many major Downtown developments, such as The Avenue, Twickenham Square and the UG White building. This project allows us to take yet another step towards our dream of creating a vibrant and thriving downtown community.

Here’s all the details you need to know about the project:

What Exactly Is The Garage At Clinton Row?

The Garage At Clinton Row is an adaptive reuse development, which will transform a small section of the first floor of the existing Clinton Row parking garage structure into 5-6 retail bays. With UG White and The Clinton Row Project across the street and The Avenue around the corner, it is our vision to create a destination shopping location filled with local and regional boutique retailers, that not only are a good fit for this project, but also for Downtown Huntsville.

Where Will The Garage At Clinton Row Be Located?

The project will utilize the current Clinton Row city parking deck located on Clinton Ave E between Washington St SE and Jefferson St S. Through adaptive reuse, the project will transform the front section of the parking deck on the first floor.

When Will The Garage At Clinton Row Be Completed?

Construction is planned to start early this spring with the hope of opening the shops in the fall of this year.

What Sort Of Impact Will This Project Have On Parking In Downtown Huntsville?

While the project is transforming a section of the first floor of the Clinton Row parking deck into retail bays, the entire project will only remove a total of 15 parking spaces out of the 497 available spaces in the garage, which leaves 482 spaces left for parking.  We have also diligently studied the garage along with city leaders over the last several months and discovered that there are, on average, approximately 200 empty space in the garage on a daily basis, so the removal of 15 spaces should not negatively affect parking in the Downtown area in any way.

What Does This Project Mean For Downtown Huntsville?

To answer this question we spoke with the lead project developer, Wesley Crunkleton, who had this to say about what he believes the project means for the Downtown Huntsville Area:

“Downtown is on a roll right now and it is absolutely critical that we keep that momentum going.

But retail can be complicated, especially in a downtown environment. However, one fact that seems to stand the test of time is that successful retail requires synergy. We cannot just spot place individual retailers throughout downtown and hope that they succeed on their own. If you want to get people out of their cars and on their feet, you have to create an experience for them.

And while we are certainly not the first to bring retail to downtown Huntsville, (retailers and developers such as UG White, The Avenue and The Hudson Family have invested a tremendous amount of time, money and effort in an attempt to create a retail atmosphere in the downtown core) we realized that we needed to create “the glue” that will help these projects stick. Fortunately, the City of Huntsville also believes in this recipe.

It is our belief that, with the addition of The Garage at Clinton Row, we have helped create the synergy needed to allow retail to succeed in downtown Huntsville.”  -Wesley Crunkleton

Who Is Behind The Project?

Clinton Row Partners, LLC is led by Wesley Crunkleton along with two local business men, Mark Harbarger and Graham Burgess, all three of whom have a passion for the Downtown Huntsville area, and helping to empower creative ways to encourage downtown’s continued growth and development.

The City of Huntsville’s partnership on this development was also absolutely integral to bringing such a creative idea to reality. We also have to thank Chad Emerson and the entire DHI team for their assistance in helping bring this project to fruition.

Where Can I Get More Information On Leasing Space In The Development For My Local/Regional Business?

While we are already in negotiations with several local and regional retailers, there are still a few spots open in the development. Potential tenants are welcome to visit the development’s website: www.shopclintonrow.com to get more information and to fill out a tenant application.  Or you can give us a call at 256-536-8809 and speak with our lead leasing agent for the development:  Anusha Alapati.

So Huntsville, what regional and local retailers would you love to see join The Garage at Clinton Row in Downtown Huntsville!? Let us know in the comments below and we’ll do our best to get in contact with them!
