  • Stimulus Loan Could Fund SS/Retail Space in Birmingham

    Main Street Birmingham Inc. is seeking a $1 million stimulus loan to develop a mixed-use retail property that will include self-storage in downtown Birmingham.

    A currently vacant 54,000-square-foot store will be turned into climate-controlled self-storage. Thoughts?

    Calling a big box conversion 'stimulus' seems quite a stretch. It's good that a vacant building will have a tenant and have long thought that such properties are a good fit for storage but this doesn't pass the smell test, not with so many developers and owners begging for, but not receiving, financing. Just how connected is the B'ham developer?

      Parking info:
      Surface, Canopy, Enclosed.

      Just talking Surface.

      Have run the numbers about 10 times on Enclosed, but I would have to charge $225 to $350 per month and don't have that market here. Have only seen one location on the interstate near Oklahoma City that had...
