Hamlet (4/14)



  1. April's passenger traffic numbers are out and records continue to be set. April 2008 saw the 13th consecutive month of increasing passenger traffic. Approximately 272,399 passed through BHM during the month of April. From January-April of 2008, over 1 million passengers have come through the gates at BHM... up more than 5% from a year ago.
  2. The passenger numbers for February were released today. During the month of February, BHM saw 235,174 passengers through its gates. That is about a 9% increase from February of 2007.
  3. Today, it was announced that Continental Airlines will be adding 2 new non-stop flights from Birmingham to Cleveland. In a time with such a bad economic outlook and so many bad economic indicators, I find this to be good news that flights are continuing to be added at Birmingham International Airport. In fact, the airport continues to grow at a pretty steady rate and has set numerous records in terms of passenger traffic over the last year or so. Hopefully they'll get going on the new expansion/modernization of the terminal.
  4. Here's the developer's website for "The Forge" http://www.performaentertainment.com/birmingham.htm
  5. Work began today removing old cobblestone from the Railroad Park site. The cobblestone will be stored and later used in the park development. But this is big news because this is the first tangible sign of construction beginning. Hopefully it won't be too much longer before full construction begins.
  6. January 2008 numbers... 234,931 passengers passed through Birmingham International Airport. That's a 4.5% increase from January 2007. Looks like we're on pace for another record-breaking year at the airport. Now if only we could get the expansion/modernization plan underway.
  7. Any news on this and a construction timeline?
  8. Every little bit helps. Looking forward to seeing what Langford can do with this city over the next few years.
  9. Birmingham International set a new record for passenger traffic in a year. Over the course of 2007, approximately 3,222,689 passengers came through Birmingham International Airport. That bests the old record (set in 2005) by about 100,000. Keep it growing!
  10. Help out Cooper Green They're giving away a free MRI... Cooper Green is currently 7th but has a ways to go to move into 1st. Help them out. They could really use it. Keep in mind. You can vote once per day per computer. http://www.winanmri.com/index.php?view=popularity
  11. Continental Airlines has announced plans to add two daily nonstop flights from Birmingham to their Cleveland hub.
  12. The Leer Tower sign was lit up tonight
  13. It has been announced that Ruben will open Club 205 in the entertainment district. No other tenants have been confirmed at this time that I know of, but many have been rumored. Performa's CEO is supposed to be in Birmingham next month to announce both a name of the district and the rest of the tenants.
  14. Birmingham International continues to be unusually active. I just came back to Birmingham through there today and it was pretty packed. Also appears they've released their June numbers and air traffic was up 5% in June. From January to June, approximately 1,560,645 have passed through the gates... that's about 50,000 more than the same time last year.
  15. Looks like the Residence Inn proposed for 20th Street near the DoubleTree hotel might actually see some action now. A recent Bizjournal story indicates that Crescent Hotels and Resorts will join the Clarkson Group on the project. Good news I would say. I'm not sure if this is what had been holding up the project, but now that a hotel development company in particular has joined on with the project, I assume there's little doubt now that it will be realized.
