Metro Birmingham Projects List

Recommended Posts


I can definitely see that. Nice little place to meet up before and after races. The classic car museum would complement the Barber museum nicely. I can see this as possibly being more economical. Although it still would fit in downtown over freestanding or attached to a shopping center.

The New York Times indicates that the diner will be part of a planned entertainment district near the Talladega Superspeedway.

Well, construction on the expansion of the Childrens' Hospital of Alabama will began in mere weeks. The 750,000 square-foot expansion will increase the number of bed to 332, and expansion for nearly 100 more beds. Also the hospital will be LEED-standards with walkways and skybridges connecting to the new UAB Womens' and Infants Hospital along with the original Childrens' Hospital structure.

This project makes me happy. I love to see new projects being built close to downtown, and I think this will be a great addition to the central part of out metro. I wonder what the actual retail will be...from what is explained, I am thinking that it is going to be completely different from what we already have here.

Plans for a $40 million, 260-unit residential development in the Lakeview District were approved yesterday by the Birmingham Design Review Committee. The Metropolitan Apartments project will fill almost an entire block on 7th Avenue between 29th and 30th Streets. Construction is set to begin this spring and finish in 2017.

 

It seems like forever since the little Rocky's Pizza building was torn down on that corner. Great to see this kind of quality infill going in there.

 

Construction to begin in spring on $40 million Metropolitan Apartments in Lakeview

I recently drove through Birmingham and I was pleased to see that the I-22 interchange was complete and open for usage.  It has been a couple years since I drove through, I know it's been open a while.  It's great to see the interstate system continue to expand and connect cities.

this proposal certainly came out of nowhere... i'll remain cautiously optimistic:

New $250m skyscraper, The Block, proposed for 2nd Ave N Birmingham

200814_The-Block_Renderings_3-scaled.jpg

development website:

https://theblock.live/

this would have the tallest occupiable floor in the state (i believe the RSA Tower in mobile, with its spire, would still be taller though)
