@oasisofjustice

but the main page (and the renderings from the articles) clearly show birmingham.

maybe it was originally slated for montgomery, but they think it might get more financial support here? no clue...
I think they might have confused one city with the other or something. That oasis of justice people. Isn't that a pic of that new social justice museum in mongtomery. I heard the one planned for birmingham has been in the development stages since bell was in office.

no. it's literally the same building if you look closely.

the @oasisofjustice account is the IG page of the Global Forum for Freedom & Justice

the post even says:

At the birthplace of the civil rights movement in Montgomery, Alabama, The Global Institute of Freedom and Justice, designed by Lord Norman Foster, will celebrate the courage of Rosa Parks, the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and the landmark legal decisions of Judge Frank M. Johnson, Jr. Join us as we demonstrate how the arts, faith and technology can be catalysts for social change. We will be the gateway to the new U.S. Civil Rights Trail.

i'm sure there's a reasonable explanation, it's just odd.

I'd bet you're right. Montgomery simply doesn't have the bandwidth for a project like that to work IMO.

This week I also noticed the big old building that was at the corner of University and 20th Street (maybe it was called UAB townhouse) that held Sitar Indian Restaurant on the ground floor had been demolished. Didn't look like anything new was coming out of the ground just yet, but hopefully soon. Also, Sitar is open just a few blocks away in a new spot.

UAB has plans for that location. They just haven't revealed them yet.
