Birmingham, AL – Mayor William A. Bell, Sr., along with other Birmingham city officials, joined construction and financial partners and representatives from WeldenField to celebrate the kick-off of the re-development of Highland Manor Apartments located in the heart of Birmingham’s Southside.

This will be the first major renovation of Highland Manor in more than 30 years and will include all new roof, windows, exterior paint, HVAC and plumbing systems. Inside each apartment home, there will be new kitchen appliances and bathroom fixtures, as well as new flooring in all the common areas.

Highland Manor is a 16- story apartment building featuring one bedroom homes for seniors, 65 years of age and older, and those who are mobility-impaired. Homes feature a fully-equipped kitchen, spacious living and dining area with ceramic tile, grab bars in the bathroom and an emergency call system. Rent is based on income and utilities are included in the rent.

Mayor Bell and other officials kicked off the ceremony by talking about the impact this development will have on the community. “As part of our commitment to community development, the Highland Manor renovation project is being partially funded with $1 million in HOME funds from the Community Development Department,” stated Mayor Bell.

Many local organizations, financial institutions and government leaders are playing a role in the re-development of this project which is slated to be completed in 2017. The general contractor is Hollyhand Realty (Tuscaloosa); architect is Giattina Aycock (Birmingham); property management by SPM, LLC (Birmingham) and developer is BREC Development, LLC (Birmingham), which is affiliated with WeldenField.
