420 21st Street South in 2007

420 21st Street South or, more properly, 420 Richard Arrington Jr Boulevard South, is located on the northwest corner of 21st Street South and 5th Avenue South.

The site has been occupied since 1920 by the 9,000 square-foot Weldon Martin Rubber building, a one-story brick structure with limestone trim. In 2017 developers Ward Neely, Dick Schmalz and Scott Bryant announced plans to purchase and renovate the building for multiple retail/restaurant tenants. The public entrance will be re-oriented to face 5th Avenue and the adjoining High Note Lounge demolished for surface parking in the rear.
