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.
