Thanks for the update pics! Almost as exciting as all of the projects happening is the excitement of them being finished and all the people it will bring to the various areas. Density is slowly coming!

Thanks for those pics. I bet we'll see another tower crane go up in the next couple of months at Lakeview Green too. Also starting to see some cranes at the Protective Stadium site.

Also UAB related (don't think it has been posted):

UAB Health System plans to purchase entire block on Southside

https://www.bizjournals.com/birmingh...ire-block.html

"UAB Health System plans to purchase a prominent block on University Boulevard from Southern Research – a purchase that could eventually add to the significant redevelopment activity taking place on Birmingham's Southside.

Authorization for the $10.9 million purchase – $53 per square foot – was approved by the University of Alabama System Board on Friday.

The block is located on University Boulevard between 22nd Street and 23rd Street South. It's adjacent to the Southtown Court public housing development, which is also slated for redevelopment, and just a few blocks from Five Points South, where two 17-story multifamily projects are currently in the works.

The purchase will give UAB Health System an entire city block for future redevelopment and use. The property is also located between UAB and Ascension St. Vincent's Birmingham. As we've recently reported, the two entities are pursuing a strategic alliance that would unite two of the largest health systems in Alabama.

According to UAB, the location of the site on the corridor between Ascension St. Vincent's and UAB's campus did make the property more attractive, but the health system would have purchased the property regardless of the pending alliance.

UAB Health System CEO Will Ferniany said the property was primarily purchased because of its proximity to UAB's medical facilities. The 204,000-square-foot block includes a four-story, 28,000-square-foot office building previously used by Southern Research for dry labs and administrative activity. It also includes three structures that will need to be demolished for $500,000.

Ferniany said UAB Health System may use a current building on the site for administrative functions to make space for clinical functions on campus. According to documents presented to the UA System Board, the long-term plan is to demolish all existing structures and redevelop the entire block for the benefit of the health system.

The lot is one that previously drew interest from commercial developers, who considering the site for a project that would include medical office space as well as ground-floor retail, restaurants and a hotel. But ultimately, Southern Research opted to sell the property to UAB Health System – a deal that could add to the concentration of health facilities on the corridor, which also includes a Veterans Affairs clinic."

That's the same block that Corporate Realty had proposed as a mixed-use project with medical office & hotel. I guess they hadn't actually purchased the land.

Developer eyes nine-story parking deck on busy downtown corner:

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

"An existing parking deck in the midst of several high-profile developments downtown may make way for an even bigger one.

Ascent Hospitality Management, the Georgia company behind the Elyton Hotel, is proposing a new nine-story parking deck at the Allright Parking Deck at the corner of First Avenue and 19th Street North. The address is 1901 First Avenue North.

An entity tied to the company purchased the deck in a deal that also included the nearby Brown-Marx Tower in 2018.

Birmingham-based Fifth Dimension Architecture & Interiors is the designer on the new parking deck project.

Developer John Tampa said the plan calls for 850 parking spaces that will accommodate the Elyton, The Yard restaurant in that hotel, and the adjacent Fairfield Inn & Suites, as well as future projects.

Tampa said the new deck would only be open to patrons of the hotels and restaurant at this time. He declined to comment on plans for the future projects at this time."

If the City zoning / Design Review Committee is worth anything, they need to get fully on board on this and make sure this nine story deck actually looks decent with lighting / facade and even push hard that the street level should include retail spots.

Agreed. Building such a big deck tells me the developer plan to get serious soon on the Brown-Marx project.

I think they have been fairly serious, every time I have passed by they are working on it. I think this developer just likes utilizing small crews and taking longer. He did the same thing with the Elyton.

Essentially once Southtown gets razed later in the year to clear the way for multi-use development, it's going to be a great time to own property in the surrounding area.
