TJ Tower presents an urban feel and modern amenities including a state-of-the-art fitness center, game room with HDTV, business center, 24/7 valet parking, cyber café, and an outdoor terrace with resident lounge. Homes range from one bedroom efficiencies from 500 sq. ft., to our more spacious two bedroom, two bath specialty suites from 1,600 sq. ft. Interior amenities include a stainless-steel appliance package, pendant lighting, natural concrete flooring, European gloss kitchen cabinets, quartz countertops and islands with waterfall edge detail, all-in-one washer and dryer unit, and beautiful 360o views of the city.
Along with residential, TJ Tower also features 28,000 square feet of commercial space including a large, ornate ballroom. This retail and event space is located on the first and second floor with leasing managed by Kathy G and Company. The brand new, Roots & Revelry Restaurant (R&R), occupies 5,000 square feet and is located on the first floor. A fun, energetic tribute to American Cuisine, the R&R is operated by Birmingham chef and restauranteur Brandon Cain of Saw’s Soul Kitchen and Post Office Pies in Avondale. Additionally, there will be another 5,000 square feet of boutique retail space available for lease.
“SPM is excited to partner with the Thomas Jefferson Tower on this project. The TJ Tower is an outstanding addition to the central business district of Birmingham and we look forward to providing professional management services for the residents,” said Eddie Ivey, VP of Conventional Operations-SPM, LLC.
“We’re happy to announce the historic renovations are now almost complete. We’ll begin moving residents in beginning this August with a grand opening planned for the apartments, retail boutiques and the brand new Roots & Revelry Restaurant later this summer,” stated Brian Beshara, Beshara Group and managing partner of the TJ Tower.
The general contractor is Stewart Perry Construction. Commercial leasing services are provided by Hydinger Stewart & Chew Commercial Properties, LLC and residential property management services are provided by SPM, LLC. Pre-leasing on residential and commercial space has begun, with a grand opening planned for late summer 2016.
Originally built in 1929, the Thomas Jefferson Hotel had 350-rooms and is best known for having the world’s last zeppelin mooring mast on the rooftop, which will be preserved in the new project. The historic landmark’s luxury status at that time made it a prime attraction for celebrities and distinguished guests, including Presidents Calvin Coolidge and Herbert Hoover, entertainers Jerry Lee Lewis and Ray Charles, and sports icons Pete Rose and Alabama Head Coach Paul Bear Bryant.
Thomas Jefferson Tower is located at 1623 2nd Avenue North, Birmingham, AL. Visit www.TJTower.com for more information. Thomas Jefferson Tower is an Equal Housing Opportunity.
