A mixed-use development connecting UAB and the City Center with retailers—Starbucks, Chipotle and Publix—with parking and apartments above.
The sleek design of metal panels, zinc, concrete and stucco blends the various uses while expressing the layers of public and private spaces. The ground floor retail spurs activity on the street while hiding parking behind and above. The apartments and rooftop terrace give a terrific view of the city skyline and Red Mountain. The third block of this development will consist of retail, restaurants, parking, living and a central courtyard green space with swimming and amenities. 20 Midtown won the Merit Award from the Birmingham Chapter of the AIA in 2017.
