Five Points and Redmont are going to be buzzing once all these projects are done. This doesn’t even include whatever is coming to the strip with the package store, I’d imagine someone has some sort of high rise development planned. Wonder how long before someone tackles the vacant high rise behind the new student housing building?

We have to.conitinue to support bars/clubs, restuarants, retail, sports, festivals, concerts, our parks, whatever that's in the city. Too many residential developments has happen or is coming and those that occupy them are going to want to play right around the area. If I was a developer, I would be opening new spots left and right. The population is there for the support within a 15-20 minute drive or walk of downtown core.

It's amazing how much demand there is. If a spot closes (which is rare), a month later someone is opening something in it's place. That goes to show you how much people wants to invest in birmingham, specific the downtown, midtown, and southside areas...

This area of downtown is definitely on fire! Two 17 story residential towers, and now this! The city is booming! Also, two 10 story buildings, replacing the 2 or 3 story buildings that are currently there, will definitely be a huge visual change from the expressway!

I just hope the design of the buildings turn out spectacular! The development needs to be aesthetically pleasing to the area.

A rendering was just added to the article. It looks... fine. I’ll need more angles.

Thanks, I just looked at the renderings, and these are probably early renderings that will get more detailed over time. I just think Birmingham needs to push for more exciting designs for high and midrise buildings.
