I'm not sure I understand your point. If you're talking about using the name Parisian and the reasoning behind it, it wasn't inspired directly by the city of Paris.

^ Ah ouais...? lol I mean, really? Then you should easily admit it's pretty confusing.

Bah, get your mind to peace right away, if you didn't yet. It could be called the Berliner or whatever, I honestly basically don't mind, since we see much of the same thing everywhere nowadays. Like contemporary stuff in globalization, I guess... Partly for the better IMO, although local specialties are still very charming.

Oh, and obviously, calling it "Parisian" still seems quite nice to my worldwide admired and envied locals. Huh!? Parisians for the best and FTW, forever! Dude.

It's named after a department store (Parisian) that was based in Birmingham and had a location in the building being renovated. Of course it could easily confusing.

Pizitz will feature open market like Seattle's famed Pike Place (Video)

Bryan Davis
Birmingham Business Journal
April 15, 2014

Quote:
Bayer Properties is hoping that renovation of the Pizitz building will be a hot spot for food shoppers who enjoy local and fresh products.

Specifically, developers behind the long-awaited and much-discussed project say it will feature an open-style market like those often found in bigger cities.

David Silverstein, principal at Bayer Properties, unveiled a few more details about the planned retail section of the Pizitz building to the Birmingham CREW on Tuesday.

“We’re going to do a combination market/grocery,” Silverstein said.

...................
Obviously, comparing this to Pike Place is a huge stretch, but I like that they're thinking big. That kind of atmosphere puts many more feet on the ground than just a grocery store.

Also, it's nice that we have two grocery store concepts in the works that are about a half mile apart. That's a nice distance that should help to spread out residential development in downtown.

Cityville has just been sold and the named changed to Station 121 according to an article on Al.com. They are trying to get more retail downstairs because of their location downtown between CBD and UAB as well as being near Rail Road Park and Regions Field.

and another one...

Bristol Development Group ready to join downtown Birmingham apartment development craze

no renderings yet, though.

from the article: "Another Southside Birmingham apartment project is in the works that the developer said would add up to 250 high-end apartments to the growing ranks of planned projects in and around downtown."

kinda wish we were seeing more condos instead of rentals, though...

They're just stacking up. I really hope that most of the condo/apartment plans are actually built.

yep, if/when officially proposed this would put the number of units coming online at 2,000. I wonder what the average number of inhabitants per unit is? we're talking several thousand new residents downtown/southside in the next couple of years.

According to an article in the Birmingham Business Journal today, the southside Homewood Suites Hotel could start construction this up coming July or August.
The developer has been going back and forth with the Design Review Committee over the design.

As far as the Highland Avenue condo project, I pass by there every weekend on my way to Western Supermarket and there still no physical movement of any kind on that site. But I am sure behind the scenes they are crossing T's and dotting i's.

Publix is coming downtown. This issue can finally be laid to rest. The Firestone and old Adamson lot will be a good location I think.

In an article today in Birmingham Business Journal, it stated that construction on the Highland Avenue condo project is to start in the next 90 days and the cost has risen from $40 million to $53 million and will add retail to the ground floor, perhaps restaurants.

Here's a video I found via REV Birmingham, a great piece by the Wall Street Journal about people purchasing former industrial or heavy commercial structures and renovating them into residential or mixed-use spaces.

Dome news is heating up again with Mayor Bell saying that a facility around 45,000 to 55,000 is best after conversation with ESPN.

I actually like this idea. That size could easily support the NCAA Men's BBall national championship. The city has the hotel rooms for it.

Uptown is pretty dull. If the dome is built and that's a BIG IF it would certainly put birmingham on the map. The only worry i have is that it will be a money pit.

If the Dome is built would that doom Legion Field? I sure hope not. It's a shame you can't put the GA Dome on wheels are bring it on down from Atlanta. What a waste in demolishing that.
