The Star at Uptown mixed-use project to be built in Alabama

The Star at Uptown, a mixed-used development is set to come up on a former hospital site in North Birmingham. Early site work has already commenced on the 50-acre Carraway Hospital campus, which has remained closed since 2008. With the demolition work completed for the first of eleven buildings, the project is now becoming more visible to passersby. The Corporate Realty developed project has been in the works for about 4 years.

The first building razed for The Star at Uptown project was located three blocks north of Top Golf. More specifically, its location was near the corner of 15th Avenue North on Carraway Boulevard. Further demolition will continue on ten more buildings and this is scheduled to be completed by year’s end. In the end, these new spaces will accommodate a mixed-use development consisting of office, retail, entertainment, hotel, and residential spaces.
