  • Project Cost: $18,100,000
  • Project Address: 2225 3rd Avenue North, Birmingham, AL 35203
  • Project: Redevelopment of former Red Cross building in downtown Birmingham
  • Owner of Project: Owner not listed
  • Builder: Wyatt General Contractor LLC

Since mid-2021, the long-vacant Red Cross building in downtown Birmingham has been undergoing a top-to-bottom renovation. The goal? To transform the property into an 192-unit workforce housing apartment complex called Market Lofts on Third.

The five-story, 125,000 square-foot building was once home to the local American Red Cross’ headquarters and blood donation center, but the organization moved in 1998, and the building has been vacant since. In 2020, developer Ed Ticheli purchased it with plans to redevelop and convert the structure into “workforce apartments,” just like his previous American Life Building project.

Once complete, the Market Lofts on Third will offer 192 apartment units, ranging from $750 to $1,200 a month. Developers aim to complete the Market Lofts on Third by Christmas 2022.
