Winner: Urban Land Institute - Alabama: Development of Excellence
The Pizitz Food Hall is located at the base of the historic 7-story 1923 Pizitz department store building in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. Undergoing a complete remodel and facelift by another architect, including restoration of the terra cotta façade, the upper floors of the building are being converted to apartments. The Owner turned to RJTR to design the layout, shell space and infrastructure for the street level Food Hall. Expected to open late winter of 2017, the Food Hall focuses on chef-inspired ethnic cuisine and contains 14 food stalls, three restaurants, two retail shops and a central bar.
