Venue at the Ballpark

Birmingham, Alabama/241 units & 333 beds

BOKA Powell worked with developer University House Communities to create a 241-unit mixed-use multifamily residential development in Downtown Birmingham. Five levels of residential units sit atop at-grade parking and one additional parking level below grade.

The project shares a site with Regions Field, home to the Birmingham Barons baseball team. Building architecture and materials respect the character of the surrounding development. Sight lines have been carefully optimized to provide a maximum number of units with a visual connection to the ballpark and surrounding urban redevelopment. The pool and courtyard amenity decks are located on level two and are open to outfield views of the stadium. The ground floor parking area includes designated zones at the perimeter for temporary food truck parking, creating temporary storefront type vending along the pedestrian sidewalk zone for special-event occasions.


“It is really rewarding to get to work on a project which has such great potential for space-making. This project is a significant continued investment in the Ballpark district and will have a lasting impact on the City of Birmingham. Not only do the apartments have spectacular views of the Ballpark, the building will help to complete the space initiated by the stadium. In this way, we are getting to contribute to making a memorable urban space."
