The magnitude of how much that will clean up the neighborhood and make it look even better by replacing that fleabag hooker hotel with that can not be understated.

That was actually the inspiration.

Was just looking at the virtual tour of that development, kind of feels like being on a developed pier (with how everything is stacked in close and narrow) which is cool. I didn't think much of Box Row when I first read about it, but these latest renderings look very nice.

Not major enough for the Gov to make an appearance, but hopefully big enough to bring a large number of jobs to the area. Bibb doesn't have any interstate access which makes me wonder how big this could be as I immediately thought auto supplier, but since ALDOT has plenty of money and resources and no other region needs anything right now maybe they will build them a brand new stub interstate right to their front door.

'Major economic development announcement' planned for Monday in Bibb County | AL.com

Quote:
Alabama Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield will make a "major economic development project for Bibb County and the Birmingham region" Monday, according to a news release.
The announcement is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. Monday at the Bibb County Board of Education offices in Centreville.

Well, they are less than a mile from I-20 on the northern border and US11 runs through the northern part of the county and both of those form a boundary around Vance. Nearby is Bibb Industrial Park.


That does add up to some possibilities.

Oh yeah, I'm sure it'll be fine. Might be a good week next week for annoucements with this and Bell's statement about his meeting with Obama.
