I think this is the fourth or fifth "what's the latest on the third building for 20 Midtown?" but here we are again... Surely with everything else going on at Parkside and UAB this will get moving.

https://www.bizjournals.com/birmingh..._news_headline

"RGS Properties' Dick Schmalz, who is partnering with Scott Bryant of Scott M. Bryant & Co. on 20 Midtown, said the team hopes to be back under construction in two to three months.

Schmalz had told the BBJ back in July that the team had delayed construction because the team was exploring new avenues to finance the third building in the development.

At that point, Schmalz said the team had identified at path forward with a new financing mechanism. Construction will resume once that path is finalized."

i really hope this is true, and this doesn't get delayed even further (or cancelled). seems odd for it to have stopped right in the middle of foundation work. such a high profile site.

Commercial real estate financing is tricky. I can totally see how it would happen.

https://ironcity.ink/neck-of-the-woo...oundup-nov-19/

"Property owner Dr. Ingrid Straeter-Knowlen has requested that the zoning at 2114 10th Ave. S. in Five Points South be changed from B-3, community business district, to MU-H, mixed-use high. The request was filed by Robert Bruner."

I'm not super knowledgeable about zoning, but would this seem to indicate another taller development in Five Points?

I thought that building was slated to be a new vet clinic?

Long BBJ article about the BJCTA:

https://www.bizjournals.com/birmingh..._news_headline

I do think it is now in better hands, but unfortunately BRT won't be ready for the World Games it seems.

"He said the city is currently designing and building the BRT, and once it is complete, the BJCTA will maintain and operate the service. We previously reported the city hoped to have the project complete ahead of the World Games in 2021, but Martin said it likely won’t come online until spring 2022. He said the BJCTA will adjust its MAX service to complement the BRT’s 10-mile alignment from Woodlawn to the CrossPlex."

I don't think we should rush development for the World Games, but it is disappointing that 2 big projects in the city won't be ready for an event they could help with so much.
