Cityville Block 121

Ideally located in the heart of downtown Birmingham, Cityville Block 121 is a 272,980 square foot mixed-use development comprising one full city block. Hence the name. The project, though, is original and tailor-made to suit 255 upscale apartment units, 21,388 square feet of retail/ restaurant space on the ground level and the convenience of an attached parking deck — coveted spaces in a bustling downtown. Near Railroad Park and within walking distance to UAB and the medical district, Cityville Block 121 brings extraordinary amenities never before offered downtown — and one of our most ambitious developments in recent years.

Cityville takes up an entire city block between 20th Street and Richard Arrington Jr. Boulevard and First and Second Avenues South. Apartments include 52 studios, 118 one-bedroom, one-bath units, and 77 two-bedroom, two-bath flats, while the loft apartments are made up of six one-bed, one-bath and a pair of two-bed, two-bath units; creating a destination-oriented community where once was blight. The development also helped the city achieve its goal of helping to establish a vibrant, walkable city center.

It can be a daunting idea — to develop an entire city block in a downtown area — but the result makes perfect sense. Not only is Cityville a beautiful, vibrant place; it has established a more beautiful and vibrant city. Stephanie Zepponi Controller
