The UAB Education Foundation has purchased the Parliament House property on Birmingham’s 21st Street S., said UAB President Carol Garrison.

“While we don’t yet have plans for the eventual use of the property, its proximity to the north side of our campus and to our medical center made this an important acquisition for future growth,” Garrison said. “We do intend to raze the building, probably within the next 30 to 60 days.”

The UAB Education Foundation exists for the sole support of UAB’s educational mission.
