Former TreeTop Family Adventure site purchased by Capstone EAT LLC

Capstone EAT LLC, a subsidiary of Capstone Real Estate Investments LLC, bought the nearly six-acre property at 1017 Dunnavant Valley Road in Chelsea earlier this month for $1.5 million, according to the Birmingham Business Journal. Until 2020, the site was home to TreeTop Family Adventure, a long-running family amusement park with a go-kart track, laser tag, mini-golf and more.

Now the new owners – Mike Mouron of Capstone Real Estate Investments LLC and Nick Pihakis of Pihakis Restaurant Group – plan to develop the property as a dining space for several popular Birmingham restaurants.

Rodney Scott’s BBQ, Little Donkey and Hero Donuts arrive in Chelsea

As reported by the Birmingham Business Journal, the first section of the property includes an 18,500 square foot building that will eventually house Rodney Scott’s BBQ, Little Donkey and a communal bar. In the adjacent second section of the property, a 2,353 square foot building will house Hero Donuts. Finally, the development will include a communal outdoor dining area.

According to Capstone Real Estate Investment, LLC, the project will start within the next two to three months and should be completed within a year.
