UAB campus continues to expand, 2002
March 2024 Image of the Month

Cranes across campus illustrate continued UAB expansion in 2002.

A crane on 20th Street (left center) marks the construction of the medical school's Faculty Office Tower, which was built on top of the existing parking deck located between 5th and 6th Avenues.  The building was completed in 2003 and in 2023 was renamed as the Lyons Harrison Faculty Office Tower.  Two other cranes (right background) mark the construction of the North Pavilion addition to the University Hospital complex.  The 11-story North Pavilion was completed in 2004 as the largest building ever constructed at UAB.  The multi-story white building (lower center) was the Parliament House Hotel, a landmark on Birmingham's Southside neighborhood for decades.  The Parliament House was opened in 1963 and was demolished by UAB in 2008 for continued campus expansion.
