A storied downtown landmark, formerly Birmingham Municipal Market, was once a place of commerce with open booths for vendors and farmers to sell their wares. During that time, one could find candy, coffee and bakery products, sausage, poultry and eggs, and seafood. Later, the building also served as an automobile equipment company, a bowling alley, government office space, and local American Red Cross headquarters.

Now transformed into chic residences, Market Lofts on Third offers studio apartments starting at 321 square feet, and one and two-bedroom apartment homes. Ideally located at 2225 3rd Ave, N., it is near popular restaurants, employers, and the University of Alabama Birmingham. Its rooftop amenity deck offers views of the city with other amenities, including a state-of-the-art fitness center, gated parking, a club room, and a pet spa.

“We’re excited to provide this new living option for those who want to experience loft living downtown,” said the president of Arlington Property Management, Tammy Wyble. “Market Lofts on Third offers value plus style, and that’s an attractive combination.”
