Curious about what it would be like to live in one of the amazing lofts in downtown Birmingham? Now’s your chance! Here are four reasons to check out H2 Real Estate’s Downtown Loft Tours event, happening April 27. Tickets on sale now!
1. A Sneak Peek of Birmingham’s Newest Lofts
What’s the top reason to attend H2 Real Estate’s Downtown Loft Tour? The tours, of course!
During the event, you’ll have the chance to venture on self-guided tours through some of downtown Birmingham’s hottest lofts. Some include:
- Avenue A
- Printers Corner
- City Federal
- John Hand
- Skyline Lofts
- And More!
You’ll also have the chance to go on hard hat tours offering a sneak peak of two of Birmingham’s exciting new developments—New Ideal Lofts and Mercantile on Morris.
But wait. Did I say hard hats? Why yes I did! Because these two developments are still under construction, you’ll need to protect your noggin with some protective gear. No worries, everything is supplied for you. Be sure to tag @bhamnow so we can see you rocking those hard hats during the tours.
Here’s a peek at these two new developments:
Mercantile on Morris
Do you daydream about living in the heart of a bustling city with great views and all of the trendiest hotspots just steps away? I say turn that daydream into reality! The first step—take the tour of Mercantile on Morris. Located on iconic Morris Avenue, you’ll fall head over heels for its historic charm and prime spot near the city’s best bars, restaurants and retailers.
The tour takes place at 2212 Morris Avenue, Birmingham, AL 35203.
New Ideal Lofts
New Ideal Lofts broke ground at the beginning of April, and let me tell you something, it is the “ideal” place to live.
Located in the fastest-growing area of downtown Birmingham in the Theatre District, you’ll be living in a prime spot: Across from the Pizitz and McWane science Center, just a block from the Alabama Theatre and a short walk from Railroad Park and Regions Field. See, I told you it was ideal!
Originally a department store, the building has been vacant since 1990. Fast-Forward 29 years and a huge transformation is underway. During the tour, you’ll learn all about the buildings roots and what to expect when the project is complete. Industrial charm and modern style anyone?
The tour takes place at 1801 Second Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203.
2. You’ll Get an Up-Close Look of the Growth Happening Downtown
Growth. Rebirth. A boom. These are all words that have been used to describe what’s been taking place in downtown Birmingham for the past few years. But have you actually ventured downtown to see for yourself what all of the fuss is about?
This is one of the key reasons to attend H2 Real Estate’s Downtown Loft Tours. With a simple ticket purchase, you’ll have a real reason to head downtown and see for yourself just what’s so hot and happening in this Magic City of ours.
3. You’ll Have the Chance to Experience Birmingham Pedal Tours
Based on the list of lofts to tour (and the map), you may be wondering “Do I have to walk all those miles?” Only to some, I promise. Here’s how it works.
Some of the loft tours are within easy walking distance of each other. (Mercantile on Morris and New Ideal Lofts, for example.) Some, however, are a bit of a distance apart to make the trek by foot, like Printers Corner and Avenue A. But have no fear, because H2 Real Estate has teamed up with Birmingham Pedal Tours to take you the distance.
Never been on a Birmingham Pedal Tour? Well, this is a great way to get a feel for the experience. During the event, there will be two pedal bikes. One will take you to Avenue A, the other to Printer’s Corner. Ride price is included with your purchase of Loft Tours ticket.
4. There Will Be Delicious Eats
It would be a worthwhile event without some grub. You may want to go ahead and nab a spot in line so you can be the first to dive in to delicious food from Saw’s Street Kitchen. Yep, Saw’s food truck will be slinging tasty barbecue to hungry event-goers just like you. Pulled pork, mac and cheese, banana pudding and all your other favorites. Mmm!
The Nola Ice truck will also be making an appearance. Setting up shop along the Rotary Trail, they’ll be serving up their original New Orleans Sno-Balls all afternoon. Be sure to stop by for this perfect springtime treat.
Don’t forget to stop by back H2 to hang with Paper Doll Bar and Birmingham Taste Tours! There will be multiple ways to win tickets to the Regions Tradition Tournament throughout the day, make sure to grab the details at check in!
