BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – The $30 million LIV Parkside across from Birmingham Railroad Park will move from the drawing board to reality Monday when it becomes the first of the announced apartment developments in the area to break ground.

The six-story LIV Parkside is being built across First Avenue South from the $19 million Railroad Park between 17th Street and 18th Street. In addition to the 228 apartments the project will have close to 3,000 feet of retail space at the ground level. The project will be built atop a two-level, 290-space parking deck.

A groundbreaking ceremony is slated for 3:30 p.m. Monday at the site of the future development. The project is expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2015.
