Avondale block that includes popular brewery and restaurants sold
Birmingham, Ala. —
A whole block in a popular Birmingham spot now has new owners. The area that includes Avondale Brewing Company, Post Office Pies, and Saw's Soul Kitchen has been sold. It was all purchased by Birmingham based real estate development company, Orchestra Partners.
Co-Founder John Boone says people don't need to worry about this purchase, he says the brewery and restaurants will stay. Boone says Orchestra Partners says they have no immediate plans for the Avondale block they bought. "Our business model is to try and re-develop tired, underutilized parts of downtown but another part of our model that we don't ever want to forget is helping maintain things that are being re-used in the way that we see fit so helping maintain Avondale in it's current form."
Boone says they did not want to see Avondale bought out by a national company because keeping things local is important to them. Orchestra Partners is also working on projects in Five Points South and the City Center.
