Office Park

Office Park was a pioneering business development between Cahaba Road and U. S. Highway 280 in Mountain Brook. Developed in 1955 by Newman Waters, Sr and Ervin Jackson, it is considered the first planned office park in the United States. Among the novel features of the development was the park-like setting with landscaping and trees surrounding expansive free parking lots and low-rise office buildings.

The Jefferson County Historical Association recognized the site with a historical marker in early 2013.
