anyone know what happened to Lakeview Green?

after demolition of the school, the site has sat empty for at least a year it feels like. however, the construction fence is still up (although it has taken a beating), and they still have a working website (Lakeview Green | Birmingham, AL).

I'm just guessing, but I imagine since some of the units are condos to be sold that perhaps not very many units have sold as of yet so financing for the project could be in limbo.

Not saying that's the case here, but it wouldn't be the first time a condo project was put on hold until more units were sold to make the project viable.

This doesn’t answer your question, but I feel like in the next 5 years we will (hopefully) see a lot of housing pop up around pepper place. It would be a great location for row houses or mid rise living. Especially with pepper place becoming even more of a destination with bars and restaurant and being so close to downtown.

Several tenants coming to Iron Age Building downtown:

Article lists four companies that are moving in to the office space and says there should be a total of 200 people working there by Thanksgiving. A bridal shop is filling the last ground floor space next to Brick & Tin.

Planning & Zoning Meeting Agenda for 11/13:

PLANNING & ZONING MEETING

Most of it related to the proposed hotel / mixed-use development off the expressway in Redmont Park / Highland Park.

I'm not sure if that one will go through... the neighborhoods seem to be against it, mainly due to height.

Also, some new townhomes planned for Woodlawn (near the newish Woodlawn Station development). That area has redeveloped nicely over the past few years. You can see it when you drive from 1st Ave South out of "downtown" Woodlawn towards I-20.

I think townhomes are beginning to trend in the city, for whatever reasons. I think some are planned for the carraway property, if not mistaken. Also avondale, to I believe or once it was proposed for.

I can see some going up in parkside and pepper place

the scale of townhomes definitely makes sense for areas like avondale, woodlawn, etc... neighborhoods that have a good mix of single family homes but also have a commercial type district.

parkside i think will continue to see more multifamily "mid-rise" type developments. townhomes make sense along rotary trail, but i can't picture them anywhere else in that area.

Rotary Trail and Pepper Place along 1st Ave S are perfect places for more townhouses IMO.

So Newks in Cahaba Village and Inverness surprisingly closed down all of the sudden. Strange. I wonder what will replace them.

Must be terrible management because both places were always packed at lunch.
