The city of Tarrant recently unveiled its new City Hall building, which has been dedicated to Tarrant Mayor Loxcil Tuck, who is the longest-serving female mayor in Alabama history.
The 10,004-square-foot building was built by Coston General Contractors Inc., in conjunction with architectural firm Gardner Architect Inc. The project was started in January of this year.
“It’s such an honor to see the new City Hall building come to fruition,” said Tuck. “I’ve been extremely passionate about the revitalization of historic downtown Tarrant throughout my term, and I’m certain the new City Hall building in the heart of downtown will serve as a catalyst to spawn new businesses in the city center for years to come.”
Tarrant was incorporated in 1918 with industry at its center. Today, industry continues to be the lifeblood of Tarrant, which has more than 6,000 residents enjoying both the attributes of a small city and being near the larger Birmingham metropolitan area.
Located at the intersection of East Lake and Jackson Boulevards, the new City Hall building is situated in the central business district of downtown. The city hopes to move in and occupy the building on Nov. 19.
The former city hall building will be put up for sale. Located at 1604 Pinson Valley Parkway, the two-acre building has frontage and a traffic light on Highway 79.
