"We think the property lends itself as office or as residential, and we're going to let the market determine the future of the site," said John Pavone, business-development director for the firm. If one or two tenants step forward during the next few months to claim the majority of what will be 100,000 square feet of space, the owners will "re-skin" the building and improve it to meet their needs.
If no companies commit to the space within six months, West Second Street will take advantage of the building's proximity to SunRail commuter rail by pursuing plans for an apartment project there, Pavone said.

An existing office building constructed in 1980 currently resides on the 2.25 acre site. “We have developed architectural renderings that include a new glass curtain wall for the building†said John Pavone, Director of Business Development for West Second Street Associates.
“The building has great bones that we can leverage in a remodel. We can deliver a 100,000 sf block of Class A space to the downtown Orlando CBD, faster and more economically than anyone else.“
“We have created a niche in acquiring non-core assets that have been deemed surplus by Fortune 500 sellers†-Pavone stated WSSA is known within industry circles as one of the nations largest privately-held developers of properties for the General Services Administration (GSA). The General Services Administration is the leasing arm of the Federal Government. “Over the course of the last several years, we have been actively diversifying into other asset classes. We have been purchasing apartment communities, and other strategically located properties, in an attempt to reposition our business and create additional value.†â€" said Pavone

"The building is perfect for tenants that have been priced out of the primary corner in Alabama, (20th Street North and Fifth Avenue North) or firms that are looking to save on their rent expense but not sacrifice location," said John Pavone, the West Second Street executive overseeing the firm's efforts to fill Regions Plaza. "We purchased the property at the right price and are well positioned to compete aggressively for tenants."
Neither Regions nor West Second Street have disclosed the purchase price for the building. Pavone said most of the floors in the tower have 11,000-square-feet of space, though some floors have been divided into two 5,000-square-foot spaces.
"The bank was a great caretaker of the space," Pavone said. "It was impeccably maintained and recently renovated prior to them vacating." He said the company is willing to replace paint and flooring for tenants at an added cost, but for those who want "as is" space, there are bargains. West Second Street is asking $15 to $30 per square foot in annual rents, depending on the degree of tenant improvements.
"The location of the building is perfect for businesses that support the financial services industry or the court system," he said.
The ground floor, which was home to a Regions Bank branch for decades, is being pitched to several banks, including some that would be new to the Birmingham market, Pavone said.
"A bank branch anchoring the main floor is a obvious fit. The basement is equipped with a bank vault and secure access," he said.

Pavone said the GSA has no firm date for deciding where the new offices will be. West Second Street has specialized in GSA projects, completing nearly two dozen of them in the past. "They typically move at their own pace and it is hard to predict their timing or next step," Pavone said.

Pavone said the new $50 million Westin Hotel being built near the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex will cater to convention and recreational travel and give weekend visitors a new option. He said there is still a need for the business traveler who wants to be near the law offices, government offices and banks downtown during the week.
"The lower floors - floors two through eight - would be perfect for a boutique or upscale hotel catering to the financial/court services traveler," Pavone said. "The original plan to convert the entire building to a hotel would be overly ambitious in today's economy. But a 125-150 room hotel occupying those floors would likely be at full capacity throughout the work week."
Pavone said a hotel component to Regions Plaza remains an option, but is not definitive.
"No decision has been made on the hotel concept as of yet," he said.
...
John Pavone, business development director for WSSA, said that the structure will be a Leadership in Environmental Engineering and Design (LEED) facility, meaning that state-of-the-art environmentally-friendly features will be featured throughout the building.
