Watkins & Eager is pleased to announce the firm serves as legal counsel to The Dobbins Group in two transactions that were named in the Birmingham Business Journal’s (“BBJ”) CRE Deals of the Year 2019.  According to the BBJ, Avia Vestavia Hills “represents a major multifamily redevelopment project in a popular area of the Birmingham suburbs.”  A second major development known as Avenue A Townhomes was noted by the BBJ for “bringing luxury living units next to [the] Rotary Trail.” These two developments expand The Dobbins Group’s footprint in the Birmingham metropolitan area.  

Aaron B. Thomas, a member of the Watkins & Eager Birmingham Real Estate Practice Group, represents The Dobbins Group in both developments.
