Gulf Shores welcomes Acme Oyster House, unveils Waterway Village development

On Wednesday, Gulf Shores Mayor Robert Craft and members of the City Council officially welcomed Acme Oyster House® and unveiled plans for a development they say will create increased sustainable economic opportunities while helping to restore and revitalize a once thriving area of the city.

Waterway Village will soon begin to take shape along both sides of the Intracoastal Waterway and a unique downtown atmosphere will transform some of Gulf Shores’ most historic real estate. Its pedestrian friendly design will feature quaint streets with tree-lined sidewalks, inviting seating areas, decorative lamp posts and a waterfront boardwalk offering residents and visitors a year-round destination for dining, shopping and entertainment.

According to Acme Oyster House® Director of Business Development, Jeremy DeBlieux, the City’s vision behind Waterway Village served as a major selling point in their decision to bring the restaurant to Gulf Shores.

“We have locations in Louisiana and Destin and knew we wanted something in between. Once we visited Gulf Shores and heard the vision behind Waterway Village, we fell in love,” said DeBlieux. “This area will become an entertainment and dining destination and that’s the business we’re in.”

DeBlieux went on to say, “I’ve never worked with a local government more supportive and committed to bringing new business to a community.”

While the City is committing significant resources to Waterway Village, leaders say the long-term success of the area hinges on the ability to attract private partners.

“We are excited to welcome Acme Oyster House® as the first addition to Waterway Village,” said Craft. “Acme exemplifies the type of partner we are looking for. Their team has shown an unwavering commitment to Gulf Shores and to this project and we couldn’t be happier to have them.”
