It's probably not too far into the future that almost all of those old warehouses / automotive businesses sell out, which will create a nice continuous district from Parkside to the Battery to Pepper Place and Lakeview.

Yeah, I just hope we'll fight to keep the character and soul of our city intact as we grow. We don't want to become bland or sterile like some of these other cities. I would like to see adaptive re-use of some of these old warehouses in the downtown area. They can demolish the plain ones, but the ones with historical charm and character should be integrated into new developments. Let's keep our focus on growing without losing what makes Birmingham unique.

I think it is safe to say this will happen. I think our local developers for the most part have done a nice job of restoring buildings instead of demolishing them.

i really hope those car dealerships move out of downtown due to the increase in development. i realize they bring in a healthy tax base, and i'm not saying i want them out of birmingham, but i hate how many are downtown (especially the one by 20 midtown).

Yeah I mentioned to my wife the other day that I would be shocked if the one by 20 Midtown is still there after the Powell Steam Plant project gets going. It's rough especially being on 20th St, what many hope will be the primary pedestrian corridor through the city.

Southpace Properties just posted on Instagram that the Sherman Industries plant is available for redevelopment. Is Residential Ventures no longer managing that plan?

Looks like a solid project. I would have preferred a small shop instead of the one standalone house that looks kinda strange, but I'm nitpicking at that point.

Interesting item on tomorrow's city council agenda:

A Resolution setting a public hearing January 7, 2020 to consider the
adoption of an Ordinance “TO AMEND THE ZONING DISTRICT MAP
OF THE CITY OF BIRMINGHAM” (Case No. ZAC2019-00038) to
change zone district boundaries from B-3 (Community Business District)
and B-1 (Neighborhood Business District) to MU-D (Mixed-Use
Downtown) in order to construct a new, mixed-use development that
includes hotel, medical office, retail and restaurant uses filed by Corporate
Realty Development, representing the owner, Southern Research Institute,
for the properties located at 817 22nd Street South, 823 22nd Street South,
825 22nd Street South, 2200 9th Avenue South, 2228 9th Avenue South,
832 23rd Street South, 828 23rd Street South, 826 23rd Street South, 824
23rd Street South, 806 23rd Street South and 2206 8th Avenue South

Looks like Southern Research is going to be demolishing some older structures and building a large mixed-use development (hotel, medical office, restaurant/retail) on the block borders by University Blvd, 22nd St S, 23rd St S, and 9th Ave S.

I like the sound of this. The timing is right as well with Southtown redevelopment right around the corner.
