BIRMINGHAM, AL (May 19, 2021) – Retail Specialists and Orchestra Partners have announced the latest addition to the Mercantile on Morris development, Scott Miller Projects. Set to open in June, the gallery will join Pizza Grace and Cannella Gelato at the downtown mixed-use development.

Scott Miller Projects is an art gallery that presents work by local, national, and international artists that are represented in both private and institutional collections worldwide. Scott Miller is the owner and operator of the new art gallery.

“Mercantile on Morris will be a perfect home for Scott Miller Projects. The newly renovated building is located in the heart of the city on one of my favorite streets in downtown Birmingham,” said owner/operator Scott Miller.

“Creature Builds has done an amazing job with the renovation, maintaining the character of the historic building while incorporating design elements that match my vision for the gallery,” added Miller.

Scott Miller Projects is joining Bridge + Root, Cannella Gelato & Café, and Pizza Grace in Mercantile on Morris. Located along First Avenue North, the mixed-use development by Orchestra Partners features about 12,000 square feet of commercial space along with 47 residential condos. Retail spaces ranging from 500 to 2,927 square feet are available for lease.

“I’ve led collectors and students on art-related travel to Houston, Dallas, New Orleans, Miami, Chicago, New York etc. and I have been  helping place major works in private and institutional collections throughout the U.S., Europe and Canada. My new journey begins with my own gallery. It has been a dream of mine for a very long time. You could say it has been 30 years in the making,” finished Miller.

The development includes a pedestrian plaza attracting a mix of restaurants, boutique retail, and bars to contribute to Birmingham’s downtown area.

There are still several commercial spaces open for lease. Contact Haden Smith (205) 240-3167 for additional leasing information. Retail Specialists handles leasing and property management for Mercantile on Morris.
