BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

Apartments and retail are being built right across the street from Railroad Park in a development called "Liv Parkside."

The building will be located on 1st Avenue South between 17th and 18th Streets. It will include 228 apartments on the top levels and retail space on the ground level. There will also be a two-level parking deck.

The President of Liv Development, Rob Crumpton, says this project is the first private development in the area of Railroad Park and Regions Field.

It's still undecided what businesses will open on the ground level of the building. "Liv Parkside" will be ready in March 2015.
