If you haven’t been on 20th Street North between 2nd and 3rd Avenue lately, here’s what you’ve missed: Forstall Art Center is OFFICIALLY open at 215 20th Street North. Bistro 218 has completed the expansion of its dining room and new bar. Construction is nearly complete on the expansion of Action Resources’ offices over Paramount Bar and the newly-available retail/restaurant space adjacent to Paramount on the ground floor. And property owners Joey McClure and Lisa Sheppard have completed their awesome new loft and balcony over the offices of Joseph McClure Commercial Real Estate.
Want to get in on the action in one of downtown’s hottest blocks? Joseph McClure Commercial Real Estate is now leasing the former Bon Ton Hatter building located at 219 20th Street North, right next door to Forstall Art Center and Alchemy 213. This 5,000 square foot building has three floors plus a mezzanine and would be great for retail. Interested? Call Joey McClure at 326-0020.
Whew. That’s a lot of activity, eh? Stay tuned for deets on these projects as they continue to develop!
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.
