Whenever I drive over the Laureen bridge heading to Northport or coming back to Tuscaloosa. I always see this giant billboard with a finger pointing in the west direction saying 'First and Main Apartments Available'. So about the hundredth time of passing over that bridge and seeing that sign, I did some research. What I found was pretty neat for Northport, a new, bujee state of the art apartment complex. Northport has a TON of houses and that's a fact, but they lack in apartments for sure. It's nice to see our sister city stepping up to that plate and doing what something out of the norm.

This morning I drove by to check them out and the first thing I noticed was that they look very similar to what I see in New Orleans. Exposed brick, red and black rails, tri-level and the kicker.. its located right next to the Black Warrior River.

These apartments do have some charm with classic amenities to them.

I visited the websites to check pricing and more details (no pricing - but it does look a little out of my budget, a man can dream). Couldn't find much details besides a 3 BR floor plan and a few mission statements.
