Everywhere you look, you’ll find buildings in Birmingham with historical charm and tons of opportunity. Thankfully, one local planning and redevelopment advisory firm, Orchestra Partners, is bringing new life to these buildings and creating a more connected Birmingham with retail, dining and shopping spaces.

Orchestra Partners is the firm behind some of your favorite local projects, including:

  • Mercantile on Morris: This historic building on the iconic Morris Avenue was revamped as a mixed-use development with residential units, restaurants, boutique retail + bars.
  • Powell Steam Plant: This steam plant once provided electricity to Birmingham and will now serve as an exciting entertainment venue in Birmingham’s Parkside District with tenants like Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
  • The Frank: Located on Birmingham’s Main Street, 20th St N, The Frank is another mixed-use development with 180 residential units and opportunities for retail and dining tenants—including the already popular Trattoria ZaZa on the ground floor.
  • Urban Supply: a mixed development in Birmingham’s Parkside District with opportunity for coworking, retail, dining and entertainment tenants, connected by outdoor space.
