This adaptive reuse project was transformative to the Birmingham Five Points South neighborhood. What was previously an abandoned pool hall and adjacent hotdog eatery became a multitenant development with a pedestrian thoroughfare and outdoor seating areas. Our scope of work consisted of demolishing the hot dog eatery and replacing it with a pedestrian walkway. This created opportunity for multiple retailers as well as providing points of ingress/egress for the remaining building. Two shipping containers were added to the rear of building in order to increase usable square footage and create the desired aesthetic. The finished project included or 4 tenant spaces, common restrooms, and outdoor seating. Preparations for potential restaurant and bar tenants included installation of multiple grease traps and an inspection pit, new electrical service and multiple meter banks, as well as new water lines. All work was completed within limited working quarters on a main downtown highway. Custom storm water retention and drainage solutions were required and implemented in the outdoor space. Upon completion of the project, two restaurants, a coffee shop, and a unique bar moved into the space.
