BCDC, Novare Group, Prestwick Break Ground on Foundry Yards

Luxury Apartments Within Walking Distance of Railroad Park and Regions Field

Batson-Cook Development Company, Novare Group and Prestwick Companies broke ground today on Foundry Yards, a 268-unit luxury apartment community in the Parkside District in Birmingham, Ala.

“Birmingham is the economic center of, and for many millennials and others, the preferred living destination in Alabama. It has a strong job market and several Fortune 1000 headquarters,” said Jim Borders, President, Novare Group. “Our great site in the Parkside District is between the University of Alabama-Birmingham and the central business district downtown. We have a strong team who knows how to execute at the highest level. We look forward to working with the City of Birmingham staff on this project.”

Designed by Niles Bolton Associates and Birmingham based Schoel Engineering, the new development will offer a variety of studios, one and two- bedroom apartments spread across two buildings. A spacious, landscaped green space will separate the buildings with an outdoor kitchen, grilling areas, a bocce ball court and a dog park. Additionally, the project will have a resort style pool, 24-hour fitness center, club room and a co-working space.

Birmingham-based Doster Construction Company is the General Contractor. 

Birmingham is the largest metropolitan area in Alabama, with a population of 1.2 million. It has the largest employment base in the state, best retail/entertainment amenities and four of the state’s top 5 school districts.

The Parkside District features many historic conversions and industrial adaptive reuse projects, including office, residential, breweries and retail. It is directly adjacent and walkable to many of the city’s largest employers, including healthcare leaders University of Alabama Birmingham (“UAB”) and Children’s of Alabama, headquarters for several large banks including Regions, BBVA Compass and Cadence Bank and other major employers, such as Shipt, in Birmingham’s Central Business District.

Foundry Yards is within walking distance of Railroad Park, a 19 acre green space in the middle of downtown Birmingham with nine acres of open lawn, water features and walking trails. It is also next to The Denham, an 86,000-square-foot adaptive reuse project, which aims to be a destination of activity with restaurants, shops, apartments and entertainment and serve as a catalyst for the continued development of the Parkside neighborhood.

Virage Luxury Condominium Tower on Bayshore Boulevard Tops Off

Strong demand from buyers leaves only four residences left. Ceremony places oak tree sapling on the top floor.

 

TAMPA, Fla. (May 14, 2019) – With brisk work over the last year, construction crews “topped off” the Virage luxury condominium tower on Bayshore Boulevard this week, reaching the full height of 24 stories on time for a grand early next year. Strong demand from buyers has left the tower with only four residences unsold. 

To commemorate the milestone of topping off, workers are following a long tradition in the construction industry by hoisting a small tree to stand atop the tallest point of the tower, a symbol of luck and prosperity. In this case, crews will place oak tree sapling in tribute to the large grand oak on site that developers saved and made part of the landscape design.

“Topping out a tower is always a special moment,” said Jay Tallman, Principal of Ascentia Development Group, which is building Virage in partnership with Batson-Cook Development Company, (BCDC). “Buyers have clearly fallen in love with Virage and this special site on Bayshore, and we are so thankful for the support we have had from the community.”

Virage has just 71 residences, priced from $1 million to $5 million. Construction began just 19 months ago with a groundbreaking ceremony led by developers, neighbors, future residents and partners. Now the tower is expected to open to residents by early next year.

“This project is setting a new standard of luxury and quality, and we are so proud of all our designers, builders, partners and stakeholders who have worked so creatively to bring this iconic tower to life,” said Litt Glover, President and Chief Executive Officer of BCDC. 

The Virage tower has set sales records in the Tampa Bay region and is one of the last unclaimed parcels on Bayshore zoned for a high rise. Smith & Associates Real Estate is the exclusive listing agent, with a team led by Dave Traynor. With the Smith team representing the project, more than half of residences were already under contract before groundbreaking. Only four unsold residences remain.

Virage was designed by local architect Curts Gaines Hall Jones, a firm well known for its inspiring residences, all of which in Virage are oriented to maximize views of downtown Tampa and the bay.

Among the premiere features, the top two floors have a single penthouse residence each, with 6,700 square feet of space and 360-degree views of Hillsborough Bay, South Tampa and downtown.

Other residences range in size from 2,400 square feet to 34,00 square feet. Every residence has a private elevator entrance, 10-foot ceilings, and access to resort-style amenities such as an infinity-edge pool overlooking Bayshore, state-of-the-art wellness center, pet grooming facilities, and 24-hour staffed reception.

TIER REIT Joins Regent-led Partnership For Development of Trophy Buckhead Site

Final piece of financial district slated for $400M development

Dallas-based TIER  REIT Inc. (NYSE: TIER) has formed a partnership with Regent Partners and Batson-Cook Development Company (BCDC) to develop 3354 Peachtree Road, a three-acre trophy site in the heart of Buckhead. 

The prime property is the last undeveloped parcel in the Buckhead financial district and has excellent access to the dining, retail, high-rise residential and hotels for which the area is known. With unparalleled visibility from GA-400, the site is connected by pedestrian bridge to the Buckhead MARTA Station. It is on PATH 400, boasts a Peachtree Road address and offers direct access to 400. 

The team will develop approximately 560,000 square feet of class-AA office space on the site. Plans also call for approximately 60 luxury condominiums within the vertical mixed-use tower, and a separate 300 unit luxury multi-family tower located at 3356 Peachtree Road.

“This is a critically important site for Buckhead, and with TIER we have an excellent opportunity to create an iconic mixed-use tower in the South’s most dynamic submarket,” said David Allman, Chairman, Regent Partners. “With only one Class AA office building delivered in the past 10 years, the central business district is primed for a generational office project.”

Regent Partners— a full-service real estate investment and development firm — is spearheading the $400 million office, retail, condo and multi-family project, along with BCDC.

Buckhead is Atlanta’s premier submarket featuring a deep amenity base, exclusive neighborhoods and a thriving business district. The live/work/play atmosphere is fueling growth as the northern Atlanta enclave has become a magnet for young professionals.

The office submarket has historically experienced low vacancy and strong rental rates. The development-ready land supply in the core of the submarket has been nearly depleted over the prior two development cycles. Buckhead’s core Class AA office buildings are currently more than 93 percent occupied.

The Buckhead Community Improvement District is in the early stages of a plan to create a nine-acre multi-modal transit-oriented green space over Georgia 400, which would knit together residential and commercial districts on opposite sides of the highway with a world class park directly on top of GA-400 and the Buckhead MARTA station, which will connect to the site.

The project is expected to get underway in the fourth quarter with an anticipated delivery in 2022.

Regent Partners is an Atlanta-based firm specializing in the acquisition and development of office, residential, hotel, retail and mixed-use projects. Regent has extensive experience in the Buckhead submarket, having acquired or developed 2.1 million square feet valued at $650 million.
