Almost five years after it was vacated, the former Trinity/Baptist Montclair Medical Center site is slated to be transformed into a multi-use campus. The new $200 million project inside Birmingham’s city limits will include corporate headquarters, residential, medical and community-oriented retail and café spaces.

The announcement of the development was made by Birmingham Metro LLC, a Lawrence Kadish and Will Kadish entity.

Named ‘Arbor Terrace,’ the project will span 75 acres, extending along Montclair Road from Dan Hudson Drive South to 52nd Street South.

Other Birmingham Metro LLC initiatives in Alabama include, Stadium Trace Village in Hoover and The Landing in Opelika.

Located on the site of the Baptist Medical Hospital, which was constructed in 1966, the new development will overlook Crestline Village, Mountain Brook and the Highway 280 corridor to the south.

According to the Birmingham Metro LLC news release, the project will present over 300,000 sq. ft. of fully renovated buildings with all-new infrastructure, including high-speed elevators, advanced life-safety systems, modern architectural design features and easily-accessed covered parking (1,700 sizeable spaces).

In addition, preferred developers will have options on five graded building pads (ranging from four to 17 acres) for sale or joint venture to add further synergies to the site.

From an elevated 30-acre platform embedded in Red Mountain, the campus boasts stunning mountain views and healthy lifestyle amenities: new and expanded nature trails, a private indoor golf range, an expansive central courtyard with an inviting green space for exclusive outdoor exercise and relaxed, well-spaced networking. Professionals, residents and guests will enjoy the exceptional scenery and the convenience of the community retail shops and fine eateries.

“Our team is honored to be part of the continued expansion of this iconic and thriving area,” said development director Will Kadish. “Arbor Terrace will have something for everyone – from enterprising executives, career-focused professionals, avid nature enthusiasts and high-end culture connoisseurs. We’re certain that locals will be delighted by all that the site has to offer, and we can’t wait to showcase it.”

Kadish is joined by a Birmingham-based team to lead this project: Schoel Engineering Co., Inc., Sirote & Permutt, PC, Southpace Properties, Inc., Williams Blackstock Architects, Stewart/Perry Builders, Bullock Environmental, Skipper Traffic Engineering, Summit Electric Markstein, Edmonds Electric and Baker Donelson.

Construction on the site is estimated to begin in the Fall of 2020.
