Mountain Brook Shopping Center
The 63,000 square foot center was developed by A. A. Evans' Mobile-based Southeastern Investment Company. The east side of the shopping center opened in 1955. Harry Hester was the architect and F. R. Hoar & Son was the general contractor. The modern-styled building featured yellow-colored jumbo brick walls with glass and aluminum storefronts shaded by a pre-cast concrete awning supported by angled steel columns. Existing streams crossing the site were routed in culverts below the floor slab.
The western end of the center was completed in 1959, adding Utopia Cleaners, Little Hardware and a small Western Supermarket. The area between the two ends was left open in anticipation of the Odum, Bowers and White department store opening there. A Britling By The Brook cafeteria took the place in 1961. At the same time an out building was constructed for Treadwell's Barber Shop.
The entire complex, save the bank, was given an exterior remodeling in 1980, with new roof gables and faux half-timbering.
In 2009 Rele Evans and his son John revealed plans for a $200 million redevelopment of a 27-acre parcel including the shopping center and adjacent Park Lane Apartments on Lane Park Road. The new development, dubbed "Lane Parke" would be built in phases with a total of 210,000 square feet of retail space, 1,200 parking spaces, a 75-room hotel and 45,000 square feet of office space above the shops. Condominiums, town houses and apartments would also be constructed in the final phase.
