A new retail center in Birmingham’s Five Points West neighborhood is set to open during the 1st Quarter of 2024. 

On Bessemer Highway

The site? The former Regions Bank property at 2250 Bessemer Highway across from the Birmingham Crossplex. 

“It’s a new building. A new high quality development that I hope will reignite the area and encourage others to do similar developments in the area, Eric Guster, the owner of Guster Development told Bham Now.

Build out begins in September

According to Guster, the building is almost finished. The tenants will start building out their spaces in September and he expects them to  open at the beginning of the new year.

What’s going into the new spot? Guster listed them off.

“My office will be one of the tenants in the building. There will be two medical offices there. One which is VIPcare which caters to 60 and above medical care and another medical tenant that can’t be disclosed at this time. We have 1500 square feet of space  available now.”

Five Points West is growing

The high traffic Five Points West area is of course home to Birmingham Crossplex and the Bill Harris Arena. Recently, a new Food Giant grocery store was opened and the A.G. Gaston Boys and Girls Club.

Guster is excited about bringing a new development to a neighborhood he grew up in.

“This development is something I have wanted to do for a very long time because I grew up in the area and I wanted to bring a high quality development, legal services, medical services to that neighborhood— and I’m going to deliver it first of next year.”
