I think short term it’s going to be a green space / they will have food trucks there, but long term I imagine it will be a pretty key building or significant project going up in such an important spot.

They did this about 5 months ago..

Saw it from a distance, so I may be off, but it looks like a (short) tower crane is up for the Daniel project in Parkside.

I’m not good at posting pictures, but Creature posted on Instagram an updated rendering to their project on 1st Ave N and 23rd St. Looks better than what I remember. It says one commercial and 12 apartments, feel like that changed as well.

BBJ article related to the building:

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

"With approvals for the facade in hand, a Colorado developer continues to move forward on a boutique residential development along the First Avenue North corridor.

“The Dagny” is a project by Residential Ventures that will bring 12 units along with 2,400 square feet of ground floor restaurant and retail space over three floors at 2216/2218 First Ave. N.

It’s a $4 million project that will include a light shaft into an exterior courtyard in the middle of the building. The units will look out onto the courtyard, which will also be accessible to the restaurant and retail space.

Cam Borges of Residential Ventures said they are looking for a family-owned restaurant concept to move into the commercial space.

The project may wrap up by mid-year if not earlier, said Mike Gibson at Birmingham-based design-build firm Creature.

Gibson said the building is designed with a modern and industrial interpretation of the Art Deco Style, inspired by the Dagny heroine in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, a figure who inherits one of the largest railroad companies in the U.S. at the time."

There is. I would imagine the Foundry apartment project will get a tower crane out soon (they're just using a crawler crane now). Also, there should be multiple cranes at the Protective Stadium site within a month.

Definitely looks better. I think the original plan was condos with larger floor planes & less total units.

Definitely looks much better, found the original design:

Since we will have some condos across the street at Mercantile, I like having 12 apartment units vs 2 condos here as well.
