BOKA Powell is currently working with Inland American Communities to design a six-story, 241-unit mixed-use multifamily residential development in downtown Birmingham, Al., at the new Regions Field baseball park. The Venue at the Ballpark, located at the northwest corner of Third Avenue South and 16th street, is expected to break ground in summer 2014.

The development’s architecture and materials respect the character of the surrounding neighborhood. Sight lines have been carefully optimized to provide a maximum number of units with a visual connection to the Ballpark and surrounding urban redevelopment.
An elevated courtyard will overlook the Ballpark and feature a pool, outdoor kitchen and dining area, and adjacent lounge and fitness facilities. Additional amenities will include a yoga room, game area, business center, secure bike storage, and a high-speed wireless connection throughout the property.
