Birmingham’s Newest Destination for Food, Fun and Fitness.

Birmingham’s Newest Destination for Food, Fun and Fitness.

1931

Birmingham was beginning to recover from the Great Depression. The $1 million Birmingham Airport had just opened. Alabama finished the season 10-0 claiming the National Championship. Dr Pepper opened a new plant on 2nd Avenue. And, the 14th Street underpass was opened to better connect the north and south sides of the city. Bulk goods to supply the growing city’s needs were flowing in and out by rail and truck to warehouses in the industrial flats south of the tracks that bisect Birmingham. Everything from automotive parts to wholesale groceries and lumber was stored in what became known as the Wholesale Warehouse Loop.

The development and redevelopment of these warehouses occurred as the decades passed. They have the style typical of urban warehouses that emphasize function over form. This makes them ideal for a myriad of uses by a new generation of companies. Our vision is to return these warehouses to the vibrancy and utility of days past to again have them supply the goods and services Birmingham’s urban core needs today.

CONNECTION

Birmingham is made up of 99 neighborhoods and 23 communities. For the long-term prosperity of our city, planners have focused on crafting a vision for all of Birmingham. That vision begins with connection. Parkside is Birmingham’s urban connector and has played a lead role in the rebirth of downtown. Central and accessible to the whole city, the district links important green spaces and neighborhoods from east to west and north to south. Railroad Park and Rotary Trail are major urban trail heads for the Jones Valley Trail Corridor.

Visit ParksideBHAM.com

Urban Supply is all about creating and fostering this connection. Surrounding it are thousands of residential units housing the growing student population at UAB, working professionals and empty nesters. It is within walking distance to UAB campus, The Switch (Birmingham’s Innovation District), the Civil Rights District, the Central Business District and the Medical District. The remaining Birmingham metro area is easily accessible from nearby I-20/59, I-65 and Red Mountain Expressway.

LOCATION

Urban Supply is the connector and the anchor point for Parkside. Linking the Denham Bldg and points west to Railroad Park and Regions Field, the two block area is positioned to become Birmingham’s destination for people from all backgrounds to gather together and find.

Urban Supply is designed to accommodate +/- 100,000 square feet of commercial space adjacent to the already popular Good People Brewery. Historic warehouses are being renovated into modern environments. One complex is being designed specifically for fitness and wellness-focused businesses while another will become a hub for Birmingham’s most original chefs and restaurants. Food and beverage alongside fitness, fashion and outdoor retailers will serve nearby residents, UAB students and downtown professionals seeking an urban experience where study spots, art installations and green spaces bring everyone together.

THE JONES VALLEY TRAIL

The Jones Valley Trail brings pedestrian
connectivity along the old Railroad Reservation that runs through the center of the city like a river of iron. When complete, Urban Supply will become an anchoring destination along the trail where people can stop for a bite to eat or a cup of coffee as they explore the city on foot. It is also perfectly positioned to become a gateway to western neighborhoods as the Jones Valley Trail expands westward in the years to come.

THE ROTARY TRAIL

The Rotary Trail is a pedestrian greenway constructed in 2014 in the railroad cut in the center of 1st Avenue South between 20th and 24th Street South. It serves as a critical section of the two-mile-long Jones Valley Trail and provides a continuous recreational path from Railroad Park to 41st Street South in Avondale.

THE PARKSIDE TRAIL

Urban Supply is all about connection and even before construction begins we’ve begun to bring people together. On Saturdays and Sundays, Orchestra Partners, the City of Birmingham and REV Birmingham has teamed up to launch The Parkside Trail along 1st Avenue South, which is quickly becoming a permanent extension of the Rotary Trail through the heart of Parkside.

PROPERTIES

In a time when social distancing is becoming a new normal, Urban Supply is ahead of its time. Old warehouses will soon become bright and open with plenty of broad openings to allow people to spread out.  Materials are durable and easy to keep clean.

Social distancing calls for wide sidewalks where people can easily pass, streetscapes with pocket parks and frequent greenspaces. Connecting it all is a pedestrian alley running mid-block from Regions Field to The Denham Building where visitors can spread out.

MARKET CENTER

Drawing on the history of the buildings as grocery warehouses, The market center will be where local restaurants and restaurateurs find dynamic spaces focused on promoting the food of our city. This complex of bars, restaurants and event venues bridge 13th Street S and spill into the back alleyway.  An alleyway we’re re-imagining into exciting, dynamic outdoor spaces where people from all over the city can come together savor and experience the best of Birmingham.

FITNESS CENTER

Urban Supply will become the launching off point for fitness, fitness-focused businesses and a gathering place for active lifestyles. The fitness center is the re-imagining of old warehouses into dynamic retail and studio space around a shared locker room. Spaces are perfect for a bicycle or running shop, yoga studio and traditional fitness facility. The locker room serves all tenants. Architecture is open and vibrant with community space for a pop-up juice bar, snack space or other creative use. 

Be a part of Birmingham's most vibrant neighborhood.
