Lumen Above Railroad Park is the brand-new apartment community in Parkside District. It’s in a prime location—Regions Field, Railroad Park and Red Cat are just a short walk away. The community includes studios and apartments ranging from 1 to 4 bedrooms.

Each apartment is designed with convenient living in mind. Huge windows let in a ton of natural light to open up the rooms and give you an amazing view of Regions Field. The neutral tones and pops of color throughout the apartments brighten them up even more.

Whatever you think of Birmingham student living, Lumen will blow your expectations out of the park (Railroad Park, that is). Plus, there are tons of apartment options, so you can find the best one for you—whether that’s a 4-bedroom with friends or a studio (sign me up for a space of my own, please and thanks).

Inside your apartment

Let’s be honest—decorating your new apartment is time-consuming… and expensive. Luckily, Lumen apartments are fully furnished with luxury furniture, so making your new apartment feel like home is easy.

If you’re a fan of hosting friends, you’ll love the entertaining options. From the kitchen with quartz countertops to the flat-screen TV that comes with each apartment, your place will always be the go-to.

Amazing amenities
