Harbert plans 15-story, $40 million apartment project on Birmingham's Highland Avenue

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Harbert Realty Services plans to spend more than $40 million to build an upscale, 15-story apartment tower on Highland Avenue.

More than 300 apartments will be built between Temple Beth-el and One Highland Place in Five Points South on a site that was once a restaurant but most recently was Outpatient Diagnostic Center of Birmingham.

The site also contains some vacant lots, including a surface parking area to the rear across 14th Avenue that will become a parking deck hidden on three sides by the apartment project.

The development will have a rooftop deck and pool along with a clubhouse and fitness center. The ground floor will have a retail or restaurant component, according to Dean Nix, senior vice president at Harbert. “We think what we’re proposing fits in perfectly with the city’s new master plan,” Nix said.


Harbert cut the height of the tower from 17 to 15 stories to make it more in keeping with other buildings in that part of Five Points South. It also brought the front of the building up to Highland Avenue rather than having it pulled back from the sidewalk.

The project must win concept, design and other approvals from the Design Review Committee.
