  • Project Cost: $1,195,903
  • Project Address: 800 Lakeshore Parkway, Birmingham, AL 35211
  • Project: Remodel, Renovation
  • Owner of Project: 800 Lakeshore Parkway LLC
  • Contractor/Builder: Hoar Program Management, Hoar Construction LLC

In late 2020, we learned that Buffalo Rock Company was planning a $75M expansion of their Birmingham operations. That year, Buffalo Rock Company spent $39.2M to acquire 850,000 square-feet of warehouse space at 400 Industrial Drive, Birmingham, AL 35211, as well as 120,000-square-feet of office space at the neighboring 800 Lakeshore Parkway. The warehouse & office building will serve as a new distribution center for the company, creating up to 50 new jobs.

Before Buffalo Rock moves into their new home, the company has hired Hoar Program Management (HPM) to oversee the renovation of both the warehouse and office building. Once complete, the distribution center will include state-of-the-art technology, including a $20M Vertique System that transports products throughout the facility on an automated, high-speed four-lane distribution rack.

Shipt is once again teaming up with the Wiggins Building Corporation to renovate & build out their new offices in the former Wells Fargo Tower in downtown Birmingham.

Shipt will be expanding their presence in downtown Birmingham by occupying a total of 60,000 square-feet of office space in the renamed Shipt Tower. As part of the project, Shipt will be renovating 17,000 square feet on the tenth floor of the tower.
