31st and 3rd is located in the Pepper Place district just east of downtown Birmingham where there is a thriving culinary scene as well as an emerging public infrastructure – The 2nd Alley Spur. Our project considers the adaptive reuse of the hardscape, landscape, and derelict loading dock spaces along The Spur as the impetus for the renovation of the 17,100 sf of total building area covering four different structures. The 5,500 sf courtyard between the two buildings is designed to be a flexible outdoor space that can be a performance space, food truck park, or dining court while each building will have two permanent restaurant tenants. The existing metal building to the west is imagined as a parking pavilion that serve the restaurants as well as connect to The Spur.
