David Baker Architects (DBA) and Locke General Contractors are creating a new collaborative commercial space in a catalyst development area of Birmingham.

The DBA-designed renovation of the 6,600 square-foot historic brick building at 213 25th Street N will be completed fall 2021. The state-of-the-art renovation will house new office spaces for DBA_BHM—DBA’s southeastern studio—headquarters for Locke General Contractors, and June Coffee, a wonderful local specialty coffee shop.

The building is located in the Central City Neighborhood, and the property is zoned M-1, light industrial district. Built in 1951, the building is a contributing structure in the Downtown Historic District and is known as the historic Birmingham Poultry and Egg Co. Building, according to David Schneider of Schneider Historic Preservation. Schneider said interesting buildings like these often get overlooked but add to the story of the area.

Two new retail spaces are currently available for lease with terms beginning in Fall 2021.


These affordable rental spaces are perfect for local businesses looking to be in a community-oriented environment in an up-and-coming area close to Downtown. Each available space is just under 1,000 square feet and includes a private single restroom.

The building will retain its historic character while featuring new plumbing, air conditioning, and electrical infrastructure. The historic brick facade will be preserved, while new contemporary storefront windows will let in plenty of natural light and look out over an upgraded sidewalk improved with lush plantings, street trees, and bicycle racks. The lease agreement comes with a generous Tenant Improvement package and design visioning to help you build out a custom space suited to your needs. Tenants will have access to the shared 2,400 square-foot courtyard.

For lease:
213 25th Street N Tenant Space B: 940 sf
213 25th Street N Tenant Space C: 896 sf
