Seems like the metro area has been on a decent jobs announcement/economic development project hot streak over the last couple months even amidst the pandemic.

glad to see this one moving forward:

Arbor Terrace, $200 million multi-use development, set to begin construction this fall at former Trinity Medical Center site

"After sitting vacant for five years, the Birmingham City Council unanimously voted to rezone the former Trinity Medical Center property. With rezoning approved, the 9-figure Arbor Terrace development is moving forward.

The project—announced earlier this year by Birmingham Metro LLC, a Lawrence Kadish and Will Kadish entity—will transform the former Trinity Medical Center into a multi-use campus.

Expect over 300,000 sq. ft. of fully renovated buildings including luxury condos, a corporate campus, restaurants, retail and more.

The development will span 75 acres, extending along Montclair Road from Dan Hudson Drive South to 52nd Street South. Additionally, it will overlook Crestline Village, Mountain Brook and the Highway 280 corridor to the south.

According to WVTM13, the main hospital on the former medical campus will be demolished. The surrounding buildings will then be repurposed and transformed into condominiums and corporate spaces."

birmingham definitely should leverage its position as the center of the "diamond" formed by mercedes, hyundai, honda, and mazda/toyota. i don't know much about auto suppliers, but i assume there is overlap in who they supply to (i.e. not just one manufacturer?)

IMO this project is exactly what Brookwood should have turned into if the developer wasn't by all accounts incompetent.

The site across from LUXE nightclub that was going to be Cookout downtown location seems to have cleared the space to build on it. It was empty lot when I passed by today. Or whether something else is going there. But that was the spot for it's 2nd location.

https://www.bizjournals.com/birmingh...irmingham.html

"As Cook Out prepares to open its first location in Birmingham, the popular North Carolina-based chain has its sights set on another for the Magic City.

According to Jefferson County public records, Cook Out-Birmingham Inc. acquired 2411 Third Ave. S. as well as 301, 311, 327 and 331 24th St. S. in Southside from Mike Trammell for $2.2 million. Cook Out did not immediately respond to request for comment.

Ward Neely, who recently launched Real Estate Property Partners in Birmingham, represented both Trammell and Cook Out. Trammell owns the Mike Trammell Body Shop on Second Avenue South.

Cook Out is expected to demolish both buildings on the 0.84-acre site to make way for a prototypical restaurant space. One side of the property will house the building and some parking while the bulk of the parking will be located across the alley.

If plans for the site go forward, the new restaurant location would add another dining option to the neighborhood which includes Full Moon Bar-B-Que and Sweet Tea restaurant as well as The Fish Market in Southside among others.

As we first reported, Cook Out purchased 281 Lakeshore Parkway last year for its first Birmingham location.

Birmingham residents, including Mayor Randall Woodfin, have been outspoken on social media about the area’s prospects for landing the chain, which is known for its milkshakes, burgers and barbecue."

That site in McCalla is one of two in Jefferson County. The other is on Lakeshore. 13 companies currently at the one in McCalla

Lakeshore location

It was talk years ago of building another one or two parks because the one in McCalla is running out of space.

The county should definitely be thinking about building a new business park. To spread them out geographically, they should probably look in the eastern or northern parts of the county.

I think what drives the explosion of demand out on the western fringe of Birmingham is the intermodal transfer facility in McCalla. That, along with the link up of I-22.

So while I agree with you regarding spreading the wealth, we would need to replicate the same kind of synergy between rail and trucking elsewhere in the county.

Definitely. I would probably put in in Fultondale near the I-22 interchange if there's an available tract of land.

Green Rock renovating historic Second Avenue buildings for corporate HQ

"A growing Birmingham investment firm is renovating historic buildings next to El Barrio for its new home.

Green Rock is renovating two historic Second Avenue North buildings for its new headquarters after acquiring the property from George S. Blair. The Sept. 8 deal went for $1.42 million, or about $59.17 per square foot, according to Jefferson County public records.

Longtime occupants of the buildings, Blair and Storkland Furniture will remain on site for a couple months as they enter a transitional period. Blair told the Birmingham Business Journal the family has not made a final decision but is considering moving the longtime business to a retail location with parking in the suburbs."
