  • Project Cost: $36,928,000
  • Project Address: 7600 Crestwood Boulevard, Birmingham, Project Magic Delivery Station, 35210
  • Project: A commercial remodel/expansion for the new Amazon Delivery Station
  • Owner of Project: Century Plaza Co.
  • Contractor/Builder: Brasfield & Gorrie, LLC

In 1975, the 743,785 square-foot, two level, enclosed shopping mall known as Century Plaza opened in Birmingham to a great reception. For decades, Alabamians came from all around to shop at stores like Sears, JC Penny, Pizitz and more. But by 2009, dwindling shoppers forced the mall to close for good.

Flash forward to 2020. In May, Bham Now reported that the Birmingham City Council announced their plans to redevelop the Century Plaza site. Dubbed “Project Magic”, the redevelopment of the site will serve as a 201,475-square-foot delivery center for Amazon, Inc.

2. Grandview Medical Center Addition — $50M

Grandview Medical Center, the 434-bed hospital located on Highway 280 in Birmingham, is taking a big leap forward with the construction of their Physicians Plaza II.

In 2020, representatives of Grandview Medical Center, Daniel Corporation and Brasfield & Gorrie were joined by Governor Kay Ivey to break ground on the project in October of 2020. Once complete, Grandview Medical Center estimates that the project will cost a total of $50M.
