New Ideal Lofts
Welcome to the New Ideal Photo via Bham Now

Downtown loft living sure has a nice ring, doesn’t it? The long-awaited charming New Ideal Lofts are nearly complete and after watching for years, we got a sneak peek at the hot new digs. Let’s just say, the Birmingham loft scene has some major competition. Call 205-579-9696 to set up a tour for a studio, one or two-bedroom today.

Combining historic charm with modern amenities

I’ve got to say when I toured these condos the first thing my eye drew to was the exposed brick and high ceilings with wooden beams. No uninteresting cold countertops or plain white walls that make up living spaces today. Shouldn’t the place we reside match the same unique energy of the city we live in?

Huge windows bring in natural light and views of Birmingham’s historic Theatre District greet you as you step foot inside. Did you know the New Ideal building was first home to a department store in the 1920s? You still get sleek, modern finishes and all the snazzy features you’d want in a living space without sacrificing personality.

  • The condos range from $174,900-$489,900.

Ok, but these really are a rare find

The rarest and most exclusive part of these lofts? Two words: downtown parking. That’s enough to make me sign a contract right then and there. The New Ideal Lofts not only have their own parking garage, but also assigned parking right next door at the Pizitz deck. Parking downtown Birmingham—sounds like a dream, but it’s real, call to set up a tour now.

Touring condos when I moved to Birmingham, all I wanted was to be close to the action. Our one-of-a-kind bars, restaurants and venues give our city the edge no one else has.

The New Ideal Lofts place you in the middle of all things buzzy and attractive. No literally—you are a stone’s throw away from the Pizitz Food Hall, a quick walk to our downtown theaters and only a short distance from Railroad Park. In fact, you’re so close, the 2nd-floor terrace actually looks directly over the Pizitz’s courtyard. I can hear happy hour calling my name already.

No better place to form a community

While there are so many exhilarating aspects to the New Ideal Lofts, one of the coolest parts is the kind of community that they will build. Not only are you living in a part of Birmingham with so much preserved and rich history, but you’re also at the starting line for the Magic City’s fastest-growing area.

Past, present and future truly meet at the New Ideal Lofts and being able to share that with other residents is special. Whether you’re out at the terrace, walking over to the Alabama Theatre for a show or popping by one of the amazing downtown restaurants for lunch the best parts of Birmingham are right at your fingertips.

NEW: X⁴ enters in on the ground level

These lofts don’t host your typical student-condo gym with a single dumbbell and one out-of-order treadmill. The premier fitness studio, Nexus Fitness, just announced it’s opening a second location with the name of X⁴ on the ground level of the New Ideal Lofts.

The local gym owner Chris Wade commented the New Ideal Lofts were a great place to expand X⁴ with its charm and history—not to mention an ideal location.

“I loved being a part of the revitalization of West Homewood when I opened Nexus and I’m thrilled to be able to open a new location downtown, in the heart of the revitalization once again.

The history of the building originally attracted me to the space and being able to customize the interior to reflect an upscale, boutique style fitness center was very appealing to me.”
