The District Lofts in Birmingham Opens Leasing


The District Lofts, Birmingham’s first loft community that originally opened in 2008, is now leasing for November occupancy in phase two of its development.

Phase two leasing opportunities for the building, located in the city’s Rail District at 375 South Eton St., include 18 residential units. Of those 18, eight units are now left, starting at $3,275, in two-bedroom/two bath and two-bedroom/two-and-a-half bath floor plans and ranging from 1,025 to 2,075 square feet.

“Our property is in a real district, not a lifestyle center, so it has a real sense of place,” says J.C. Cataldo, president of the Development Collaborative and co-developer of the District Lofts. “It’s urban living … that’s active, available, and connected to the neighborhood. There’s a Whole Foods and LA Fitness down the street, a public sports facility, ice skating rink, skate park, tennis court, art galleries, and more, all within walking distance of the building in the emerging Rail District.”

The lofts feature 10-foot ceilings, Italian designed and crafted cabinets, stainless steel kitchen appliances, in-suite washer and dryers, functional kitchen peninsula/islands with countertop seating, quartzite stone countertops in kitchen and all baths, oversized showers with glass doors in master baths, porcelain tile flooring in all bathrooms, closet system in master suites, and 7-foot wide plank European Oak flooring throughout foyer, kitchen, living, and dining areas.

The building is also a non-smoking facility and will offer secure garage parking, separate individual storage rooms, an on-site fitness center, and a guest lobby with a mail and packaging area.

The first floor of the building will include a combination of commercial and retail space available for lease.

Architect Victor Saroki of Birmingham-based Saroki Architecture designed the District Lofts building.  Recently completed projects by the firm include The Willits in downtown Birmingham, Shenandoah Country Club in West Bloomfield Township, and the Royal Park Hotel in downtown Rochester.
