The project aims to include an office building and two separate retails sites—perfect for new restaurants or local businesses! The currently-empty 1.5-acre plot is just around the corner from the heart of Cahaba Heights—plenty of space to add something new to the neighborhood!

The project includes:

  • Parking with shared access to the church and Martin’s Bar-B-Que
  • 3,600 square feet of retail space
  • 7,750 square feet of office space

What’s next?

Before breaking any ground, the land needs to be rezoned from an office park district to a general business district. Once the Vestavia Hills City Council meets again on May 11, they will discuss rezoning the property.

Once rezoned, the project is free to carry on as planned.
