Birmingham’s culinary scene may be expanding. We recently learned that the space at 1318 First Ave. N. was purchased by David Carrigan and Robert Crook. With the former being a big name in the city’s bar and food scene, we’re keeping our eye on the historic building to see what comes next!
Real estate + food team up 👏 👀
There are two factors that always guarantee buzz around Birmingham—new real estate developments and our fire food scene. So, when we heard leaders in both of these industries were behind the purchase we couldn’t help but wonder if a new restaurant is on the horizon. Jefferson County Offical Records shows Hibbett Historic LLC and Recycled LLC as the grantees of the property.
Recycled LLC belongs to David Carrigan who owns some of our favorite spots around town to grab a beer and some grub. Carrigan’s has two locations, downtown and Mountain Brook. While the downtown location is temporarily closed, you can visit the Mountain Brook restaurant and bar and recently rebranded Brat Brot, Carrigan’s Beer Garden.
The agent on Hibbett Historic LLC, Robert Crook, founded Ironvest Partners and is an official board member of the local NAIOP Chapter. According to Ironvest Partners’ Instagram, he’s also apart of the project transforming the former Red Cross Building into a 192-room apartment project.
