A brownfield plan for a new three-story building to be built on the site of the former Green's Art Supply was approved by the Birmingham City Commission on Monday, October 27.

The building, to be built by Jonna Luxury Homes, is at 400 S. Old Woodward at the corner of Daines. Birmingham Planning Director Jana Ecker explained to commissioners that the first floor of the building, fronting on Daines and S. Old Woodward, will have retail and some parking in the back under the building on the first floor. She said that while the building was initially approved for office on the second floor and residential for the third, it came back and was amended to have residential on the second and third floors. Plans project the building to have 11 residential condominium units available for individual custom design. Information from the building stated that two of the units have been sold.

Ecker said that there is contamination from various chemicals on the site, particularly on the eastern portion of the property, which is contained on the brownfield.
