Looks like UAB may be looking to grow up and not out.

Agreed.

I'm betting that it's just another effect of Railroad Park and Regions Field. Suddenly, the real estate in that part of town has become much more valuable. Before, it was the owners of B- and C-Class warehouses just waiting for UAB to buy them. Now with all the demand, UAB can't be confident of being the top bidder, let alone the only suitor.

The Towne House and the Worrell Building are easily the 2 most significant. Not that I have a particular attachment to either, but both definitely stand out in their surroundings.

I think the Towne House is 9 stories... anyone know what the tallest building ever demolished in Birmingham is?

The original Tutwiler Hotel. It was 13 stories.

There was also the Parliament House Hotel on 20th St that was imploded about 10 years ago. I believe that was 11 stories.

Affordable apartments set for vacant downtown Birmingham high-rise

This is the Stonewall / American Life / Martin Building on the eastern edge of downtown (very prominent from 280).

Another vacant building coming back to life. Now if we could just stop our "newer" buildings (AT&T, Regions) from losing tenants....

Downtown Birmingham probably has the greatest potential of any in the Southeast. There are some great projects taking place down there. Once the freeways are finished it will be impressive. The last 5 years have seen a major change for the good.

Along with the new stadium, remodel bjcc entire area, makeover of the Sheraton, uptown district phase 2, complete street initative, the BRT lines, the smart city program, and uab continuous expansion is putting the city in an overall better position.

I'm glad to see more affordable apartments in the downtown area.
