Hardware Park is a multi-tenant warehouse / factory / office redevelopment project on the double block between 4th and 5th Avenue North and between 7th and 9th Streets in Smithfield.

The project was developed by the Cornerstone Revitalization Group, which purchased the 1929 Long-Lewis Hardware Co. building in 2017 for $1.7 million (and trademarked the phrase "Made in Birmingham" in 2019). Hardware Park's programs are managed by executive director Mark Conner and the property is leased by Harbert Realty Services. The facility includes high-speed fiber internet, a security system and drive-in loading docks.

Fitz-Thor Engineering moved its offices in one of the buildings on site, and was joined early on by Downstream Logistics, Push Product Design and other tenants.

In 2023, led by Lloyd Cooper of Push Product Design, Hardware Park further refined its focus to primarily support start-ups building physical devices, especially in the field of medical technology, in contrast to software development firms who would be more suited for Innovation Depot.
