A single-family 187 unit residential community apartment development is being proposed for Cahaba Valley Road in the city of Birmingham. The city’s Zoning Advisory Committee is scheduled to hear a rezoning request next week Dec. 15 that may pave the way for the new development. Jim Beatty of Capstone Collegiate Communities
It's multifamily, but won't be traditional apartments. Looks like they're bringing a new style of development that's a mixture of townhomes and single family homes but they're all rental product with common area amenities. So someone that wants to rent could still have the space/privacy of a 3 bedroom house along with amenities like a fitness center & pool.

Isn't the same true of the Summit. Some really smart guy a while back snagged all the good retail real estate. This is why Birmingham has decent tax revenue.

I think they had the opportunity to snag more land to annex back then. I'm younger, so I can't recall how built up the OTM communities like Mountain Brook, Vestavia, Homewood and Hoover was like. I would think they wasn't like today. Wonder if the city was.looking at more, but waited to late or perhaps was and were met with opposition from those outside city limits.

Tim, get out a map. Even the business section of Liberty Park is in Birmingham along with The Summit, Colonnade, and Grandview and Target and about two other major shopping centers on 280. All of Lake Purdy and surrounding land including Barbers Sports/Racing Park and Museum.

The northern limits go to the I 22 interchange and the western limits go to the Walker County line.

With all that , BHM is far from being as gerrymandered as many other major and small cities.

didn't realize there was a tiny sliver of property behind the old sherman site (between it and I-65). also didn't realize the sherman site had been put back on the market after the zoning change. sounds like the developer may now sit on it and wait for a bit...

Residential Ventures acquires more property downtown ahead of potential project


A multifamily development company bought a parcel by the former Sherman Industries’ concrete plant downtown, but its plans are not set in stone yet.

Residential Ventures acquired 1028 Second Ave. S. for $1.06 million on Dec. 17, according to Jefferson County public records.

The seller was AGL Properties, which belongs to Andrew Linn Jr., president at Southland Transportation Group.

The Denver-based real estate firm now controls the whole block that formerly housed Sherman Industries’ plant next to the Denham Building. Residential Ventures had acquired that property early last year and had it rezoned to mixed-use later in May but put it back on the market this year. Cam Borges, chief development officer at Residential Ventures, said they removed the property from the market a few days ago to see how things play out in the near future.

“With Covid and everything that is happening in the world, we are going to wait and take our time to see what happens first,” he said.

The Denver-based firm has worked on several multifamily projects in the Magic City, including The Dagny on First Avenue North.

While real estate experts have expressed concerns about leasing up the flurry of new luxury apartment buildings that are hitting the market especially in the Parkside area, others say the new product is just scratching the surface of the demand.

It’s estimated to be a $340 million project to bring a mixed-use development to the abandoned hospital that will include single-family as well as multifamily residential, hotel, retail, office and entertainment components.

To move the project forward, Corporate Realty's Northside Redevelopment LLC is asking the city to provide a $4.1 million grant for acquisition and blight removal as well as up to $9.1 million in incentives that would be based on future tax revenues generated by the development.

It’s another step forward for Corporate Realty which has been doing its due diligence on the project for the last four and a half years. Councilor Darrell O’Quinn commended the local development company for holding more than two dozen community meetings along the way.

looks to be quite a few units, based on the site plan in the article:

440 multifamily units (apartments)
56 townhomes
16 single-family homes

that will be a nice shot in the arm to the north part of the city
