Plans to renovate the former US Post Office building at 317 20th Street North got a major boost in November when the project was awarded an allocation of State Historic Tax Credits made available when one of the projects originally awarded was unable to move forward. Now work is underway to transform the property, historically called Exchange Bank, for new office uses.
The Miami-based company that owns the building is partnering with Harbert Realty to rehab the 21,000 square foot property and market it to commercial office tenants.

The state historic tax credit has been a crucial financing tool for projects like Pizitz, TJ Tower, and now The Post, to move forward. REV has joined with other organizations across the state to work for restoration of the program during this session of the state legislature. We’re also working with this property owner to layer historic tax credits with other potential incentives, so this long-vacant property can bring jobs and vibrancy back to downtown’s main street.
Dynamic pricing means that the price of a given spot can change in real-time in order to respond to demand.
The City of Birmingham has approved the applications for two micromobility vendors to operate shared bikes and scooters from vendors Gotcha and Veo in a wide service area that includes downtown and many neighborhoods that will begin in early 2021.
