Historically, spring weather signifies a period of rejuvenation, marked by the emergence of beautiful plants, more daylight hours, and days spent enjoying the sunny outdoors. The warmer temperatures and longer days also make it a perfect time to engage in fun late-night activities unique to the Birmingham community. 

When you live at The Grand by Tower Homes, you are surrounded by exciting activities that are just a short drive away from your front door. The nearby parks are great for taking an evening stroll with your family, playing fetch with your dog, or soaking up the sun rays on a picnic blanket. Nearby attractions like the lovely botanical gardens, the zoo, and an escape room can accommodate any group outing and make it an unforgettable experience. 

Take a tour of The Grand today and ask about our popular floorplans that include up to 4 intricately designed bedrooms, 3 spacious bathrooms, and 2-car garages. Then, make your way into the other parts of the city for some exciting springtime adventures.
