TRO JB 1st ave pers There seems to be a growing  number of people interested in the suggested development proposals presented at last week’s Operation New Birmingham breakfast briefing.

For those of you who did not see yesterday’s piece in The Birmingham News or the reader’s poll on AL.com, the elevations created by Erdreich ArchitectureThe Garrison Barrett GroupCohen Carnaggio Reynolds, Sims Architectural StudioTRO Jung|Brannen and Williams-Blackstock Architects were presented for a vote – but the elevations only tell part of the story.

Each proposal envisioned the types of businesses that could be included and tried to work in the results of a compact agreed to by property owners and developers months earlier (including ensuring that parking was handled inside of the block. The proposals are just that – ways to visualize what is possible before going to the next step. We invite you to check out all of the proposals submitted and share your thoughts.

The railroad park and the development it is sure to generate is the most exciting thing to happen to Birmingham in a long time. If the city can lure the Barons to a new baseball park located just west of the railroad park I would be tempted to even use the word renaissance.
