According to a recent press release by Ingram and Associates, a new neighborhood is coming to historic Highland Park:

“With vertical construction quickly taking shape, the Highland Park neighborhood in Birmingham is getting ready for an exclusive housing development that promises an opulent new living experience. Maiden Heights, located at 1235 23rd Street South, is a limited collection of brownstones, villas, and manors that combine classic architecture, modern design, and stunning views.

“The very limited enclave of homes (some are already under contract) range from 2 BR 2.5 BA villas just under 2,000 sq ft and just under $1M, to palatial 3,167 sq ft three-story brownstones with features like pneumatic elevators that travel from basement parking with electric car chargers to rooftop terraces overlooking the upscale neighborhood. Brownstones are priced at $1,452,000 with Manors falling in the mid-range in price and square footage. Each plan offers distinct features not available in the others.

“Maiden Heights stands out for its architectural style and its location. The residences are inspired by the historic urban townhouses or rowhouses of New York and Boston, and each one has a distinctive floor plan that suits different lifestyles and preferences. The development is built on the former McLaughlin estate, a historic site that dates back to 1907 and offers a panoramic view of this scenic area. The estate was once the only house on what was then known as Maiden Lane, and now it will be home to 11 exclusive residences that restore its original elegance and charm.

“The construction of Maiden Heights began earlier this year, and now the project is progressing rapidly. The Hancock Construction team is working hard to execute the designs of Barret Architecture Group, with a projected move-in target of early 2024.

“Maiden Heights is also attracting attention for its convenient location and amenities. ‘This is a great opportunity for people who want to live in a vibrant neighborhood that has everything they need. Highland Park has a lot of character and culture, and it’s close to downtown, UAB, and other attractions,’ said Dorothy Tayloe, partner at Ingram and Associates, LLC, the leading new home marketing and sales firm in Alabama and the Southeast. Tayloe is heading the marketing team for Maiden Heights.

“Maiden Heights residents will enjoy cozy fireplaces in the winter, high-end appliances from Wolf and Sub-Zero in their gourmet kitchens, and hardwood floors throughout for elegance and durability.

Each exquisite home has a private garage with a car charging station for convenience and sustainability. Interiors are spacious and thoughtful, with 10-foot ceilings that add comfort and style.

‘Maiden Heights is the ideal choice for anyone who wants a home that combines beauty, quality, and sophistication,’ said Morgan Walls.
