City Allocates $4M in Emergency Funding to Rehab Ramsay-McCormack

Plans to renovate the long-derelict Ramsay-McCormack Building in Ensley are underway. The Birmingham City Council voted Tuesday to approve a $4 million plan that could have the building revitalized and open by August 2021, developers say.

The council’s decision comes just one day before a lawsuit against the city over the building’s renovation is slated to once again go before a judge.

The 10-story office building, which was built in 1929, has been empty since 1986.
