UAB is purchasing the Daniel Building in Birmingham.

The University of Alabama at Birmingham plans to purchase two buildings in Birmingham, including an iconic city office tower.

UAB Medicine Enterprise plans to buy the 19-story Daniel Building on 20th Street South for $16 million. It includes 316,000 square feet of office space and a 390-space parking deck.

“The office space offers the opportunity to locate and consolidate administrative and support services and provide space to accommodate UAB Medicine’s growing enterprise,” said Dawn Bulgarella, CEO of the UAB Health System and CEO of the UAB/Ascension St. Vincent’s Alliance. “Its proximity to UAB Medicine facilities will provide opportunities to expand clinical care facilities in alignment with the UAB Medicine Facility Master Plan.”

UAB also announced plans to buy and redevelop a one-story, 6,100-square-foot medical office building and adjacent parking for $1.15 million.
