Historic downtown office building up for renovation

The Massey Building, located at 2025 Third Avenue North, is undergoing a renovation led by Jamie Justice, managing partner of Colliers International Alabama, and aided by historical federal and state tax credits.

While a significant portion of the renovation will focus on the lobby, the building’s HVAC system, track lights and other dated lighting fixtures, and approximately 387 windows will be replaced and upgraded.

The building is already 92% leased with Hare Wynn Newell & Newton LLP currently occupying the top four floors and Iberia Bank maintaining a lease through 2026. The remaining floors will likely be set aside for single tenants, and the goal is to eventually add a retail tenant to the first level.

Southpace Properties manages the Massey Building, and Colliers is working with CCR Architecture & Interiors on the design to meet the National Park Service’s requirements and complete construction documentation.

Construction at the Massey Building is expected to begin in June.
