Doster Breaks Ground in Downtown Birmingham

Doster broke ground on Birmingham’s newest luxury apartment community, Foundry Yards, on May 21 with Atlanta-based Novare Group. The 268-unit apartment development, designed by Niles Bolton Associates, will be located on a site near Railroad Park and Regions Field. The development will consist of two buildings as well as a parking garage on site with approximately 344 spaces. The two 5-story buildings will contain studio, one- and two-bedroom apartments and many upscale amenities such as a clubroom, co-working space, fitness center, pool, outdoor grilling and patio areas, and dog park.

“Birmingham, as a metro area, has a strong job market and has several Fortune 1000 headquarters. And downtown — with Railroad Park, the commercial district, UAB, and the ball park — is teeming with activity,” said Jim Borders, president of Novare Group. “We like our particular site a lot and now that we have closed the deal, look forward to a couple of years of construction with our Birmingham-based contractor, Doster, and then our residents enjoying a great place to live.”

“It takes a tremendous amount of work by a large group to take a vision and make it a reality, and we are very proud to be a part of the team, said Walton Doster, President & CEO of Doster Construction Company at the Groundbreaking Ceremony on Tuesday.  “It’s an exciting time and we look forward to the future of this development and the City of Birmingham’s future growth.”
