Anybody have any info on the building being renovated across 22nd St S from The Battery? A previous BBJ article alluded to it becoming a boutique hotel, but wondered if anyone had any additional info.

Would be nice if Protective Stadium could get an interactive rendering like this at South Alabama

This new industrial development will definitely change the aesthetics of that particular corner. It will be developed at 5th Ave N and 31st street N. The scrap yard will be demolished to make way for the new development. Great news for downtown Birmingham!

I thought it would only be a matter of time before redevelopment jumped the expressway and headed east.

This is an awesome idea for downtown Birmingham, and fundraising should begin immediately to make it a reality! We should definitely let the world know about the world-class medical research that happens in this city!

Really cool idea. This is one of those "nice to have" or "doesn't really make sense" kind of things. But if you look at it from a marketing perspective it's wonderful. It takes some of the attention off the bleak history and shines a light on what's happening today. 600 feet is quite ambitious but it would bring the tallest building designation back to Birmingham.

By the way, The Summit is getting a North Italia!

Cool idea, but too close to the flight path of the airport if sited downtown. I think the FAA has height restrictions for buildings there.

Restrictions are just for the CBD. Anything 1st. Ave South and southward is not restricted.

Right. That's why I said downtown.
