Faits

  • Tallest building in Birmingham from 1913 to 1972, and tallest in Alabama from 1913 until completion of the RSA Trustmark Building in Mobile in 1969.
  • Upon its completion, this was the tallest building in the Southeastern United States.
  • Added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
  • This is the tallest neo-classical skyscraper in the Southeastern United States.
  • A failed proposal in 1996 would have converted this into a 128-unit apartment tower and renamed it Renaissance Apartments.
  • As a result of years of neglect, a fence was placed around its base in the late 1990s to protect pedestrians from falling pieces of its terra cotta facade.
  • Vancant since the mid-1990s, this is being renovated into commercial space and up to 100 condominiums.
  • In June 2005 the City of Birmingham allowed for 153 parking spaces in the adjacent Birmingham Parking Authority Garage No. 6 to be used exclusively for residents of the refurbished condos.
  • On Wednesday, December 14, 2005, the signature red neon City Federal signage was re-lit for the first time since the mid-1990s signaling the buildings renewal.
  • With its interior demolition complete in summer 2006, renovations into condominium units will commence on the top floor and move downward until its completion in late 2007.
