From The Trussville Tribune staff reports
TRUSSVILLE — The Design Review Committee approved plans for two new buildings in the Trussville Downtown entertainment district.
Both buildings will have retail space on the ground floor, while one building will have living space on the second floor and the other will have professional office space on the second floor. The buildings will be located on Morrow Avenue, just off of Main Street.
“The mixed use building with live and work space is new to Trussville,” developer Coby Lake said. “We’re excited about bringing it downtown. There’s really nothing like it here and I’m anxious to see how it goes over.”
The project will include four residential units with elevator access. Two units are three bedroom and two baths and are approximately 1780 square feet each.
The other two units will have two bedrooms and two baths and range from 1375 to 1555 square feet. Each of the four units feature 10-foot ceilings, high-end finishes and private balconies.
The retail area and professional office space can be built to suit prospective businesses.
Both buildings were designed by Turner Batson. Principle owner Dave Reese has been involved with formulating the design for Trussville redevelopment since the city committed to the project. His designs include Edgar’s and Hitchcock Maddox, as well as the exterior renovations of The Trussville Tribune, Faith Mortgage and the former Gunter Oil Building, which is now home to Bank of England Mortgage.
