An Atlanta-based real estate development company is redeveloping a long-vacant warehouse building in downtown Birmingham’s Parkside area for commercial space and apartments.

Third & Urban purchased the building at the intersection of 1st Avenue South and 12th Street South about two blocks from Railroad Park and Regions Field for $3.9 million in July.

According to Third & Urban, the Denham Building development will include more than 86,000 square feet of office, retail and restaurant space. Above this space, 72 urban-style loft apartments will be constructed.

Construction is set to start in mid-April, according John Hennessy and Jamie Justice of Colliers International, who is handling the leasing of the commercial space. The project is expected to be complete in spring 2019.

The development is named after the building’s original designers, the architecture firm Denham Van Keuren & Denham.

“The cool factor is going to be unparalleled,” Justice said, adding the office space will feature 20-foot ceilings and exposed concrete columns and duct work.

The Denham Building will bring a mix of office and apartment space that Birmingham hasn’t had before, he said.

Hennessy said all of the office space will have access to an outdoor balcony. The building will also have a co-working space.

According to Colliers International, there will be restaurant seating on the roof, as well as rooftop apartment suites with private balconies.

Among the other amenities are free parking and site-wide wireless internet. The office space will also be dog friendly and offer a dog walk.

The long-vacant building was previously known as the Swalley Building. The 109,590-square foot warehouse building was built in 1927 and two other buildings were added later.

The building previously sold to an investment partnership for $2.5 million in 2013.

Arlington Properties in Birmingham is handling residential leasing. Appleseed Workshop and Golden Contruction are handling the design and buildout of the project.
