ADPH downtown "campus"

2 posts in this topic

The Alabama Department of Public Health wants to build a $6.5 million campus at the site of the old train repair shed off N. Perry St. City officials eventually plan to build a court complex on other parts of the historic Western Railway property. Apparently the projects will be built around the old railroad facility, which hopefully will one day be restored.

The ADPH development would initially include a two-story, 30,000 sq ft emergency operations center, teaching clinic and conference center. Future plans call for a two-story 40,000 sq ft office building and a 60,000 sq ft state laboratory building. Public park space is included in the design, and work could begin on the project in 2009.

I'm glad that ADPH wants to support downtown development, but the city needs to enforce the SmartCode and demand that this suburban design be changed to one that is worthy of an urban location. This doesn't need to get built as is.
