Did you see “It” driving into Birmingham on the Red Mountain Expressway today? Or, how about on your morning walk with your dog on Highland Avenue? What was “It?” A big red balloon. For Stephen King fans of the book and movie It – that is pretty scary stuff
Nothing to be afraid of
Fortunately, there is no reason to be afraid.
On serious note, this morning between 8:00am to 10:00am, the developers seeking the potential re-zoning and re-development of the property located at 2222 Arlington Avenue South (next to the Crescent Building which houses the offices of the Sirote Permutt Law Firm), flew a red balloon above the site of the proposed project.
According to the developers, they wanted to demonstrate the height of the building which will be up to 10 stories.
And yes, it has nothing to do with a clown.
Highland Park Neighborhood Meeting
This evening, September 10, 6:00pm at the Highland Golf Course Clubhouse, the Highland Park Neighborhood will be hearing presentations about the new development on the application to rezone the parcels to B-3 Community Business.
Thanks to Sirote Permutt, Bham Now was able to take photos of the balloon from their offices in the Crescent Building. We also took photos from the Taj India/Highland Package Store parking lot and Caldwell Park.
“As a neighborhood, we are interested in seeing the proposed design from the developers. I encourage all residents of Highland Park and surrounding areas to participate in the meeting,” Elizabeth Sanfelippo, President of Highland Park Neighborhood Association.
