Developers say The Tramont in Highland Park will draw people seeking ‘urban lifestyle’

A lot of people want to live in the city of Birmingham, according to one of the developers behind a new luxury condominium project, The Tramont, which is being planned for Highland Park.
“When we talk to potential buyers, they are all eager to live closer to Birmingham’s core as it continues to grow into a vibrant city full of culture, amazing restaurants and beautiful green spaces,” D&A Companies partner Evan Watts told Iron City Ink.
D&A, which is based in New York, hopes to contribute to this growth “in a really positive way” with The Tramont, Watts said.
The Tramont, to be located at 1236 22nd St. S., will have 28 residential units in a dozen different layouts.
The development will offer a mix of 1-, 2-, 3- and 4-bedroom units running from 1,100 to about 4,000 square feet, including three two-story, townhouse-style maisonettes.
“No unit is the same,” Watts said.
In addition, each unit is placed on a corner to “maximize” the panoramic views of the Birmingham skyline, he said.
Prices will range from about $700,000 to about $2 million.
Construction is estimated to begin in the third quarter of 2022, and units are available now with occupancy expected in late 2023.
The developers said they believe some of the buyers at The Tramont will be seeking to downsize from a larger home in the suburbs to live a more urban lifestyle.
The Tramont will offer concierge and doorman services and amenities such as a gym, yoga room, sauna, heated lap pool and exterior terrace garden.
The developers also tout the virtues of Highland Park, a historic neighborhood with several parks and green spaces. They said they are using high quality materials and “timeless” architectural details to evoke the style of neighboring historic homes.
However, Watts said the building’s location may be its best feature, because the facility is within walking distance of English Village and Five Points South.
The Tramont will also be in close proximity to numerous popular eateries, including Bottega and Continental Bakery.
D&A Companies is partnering with the project on Ingram & Associates and The Five Stone Group.Read moreDownloadSee project
