New year, new NEWS on some exciting City Center development projects! We’ll keep you updated throughout 2017 as these projects move to Grand Openings.
If you’ve ever remodeled an older home, you know evolving plans and revised timetables are part of the process. Same thing holds true when renovating older buildings…just ask June and Cameron Carr, who have been renovating the building they purchased at 214 20th Street North, near the Lyric and Alabama Theatres.
In the past few months, not only did they complete the ground-floor renovation of O’Carr’s Restaurant (welcome back downtown, guys! Woop-woop!), but they have also built out two rental units on the second floor and their own residential loft on the third.
Cameron Carr recently told us things are on track — the rental units are now available for lease and the downtown O’Carr’s will open by the end of January. Call 422-5100 for loft details. Trust us, these units will move fast!
Just up the street from O’Carr’s, Gray Construction’s Alabama office has joined the neighborhood! Gray Construction is renovating its spectacular new space at the corner of 3rd Avenue North & 18th Street. Way to go and welcome, you guys!
After opening Chocolatà Artisanal Chocolatier in 2017, Kathy D’Agostino has enjoyed watching the once quiet streets of downtown Birmingham come back to life. REV sat down with her to learn more about how she landed here, where she thinks the city is heading, and why Chocolata believes in Birmingham.
Join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, on Thursday, June 6 for a discussion about the Importance of Place with the Alabama Futures Fund, hosted at downtown Birmingham’s brand new Harvest Market!
