The Crescent Building

Atop the crest of Highland Avenue in Birmingham, Alabama’s historic Highland Park neighborhood, The Crescent Building is a well-known five-story building offering Class-A offices with incredible views of the city. CMH worked closely with the city and the neighborhood association to develop a design that complimented the adjacent historic residential construction.

We met with the Highland Park Neighborhood Association, a strong association for this historic neighborhood, to hear their concerns.

We made modifications to the design, and we went back to them … We got unanimous approval and a standing ovation, and the reason was — we listened. We really listened to them and reacted accordingly.

CMH demonstrates an understanding of the issues a developer encounters in trying to design a beautiful venue,

while at the same time understanding cost implications that need to be attended to in order to make these projects successful.
