Communications firm purchases downtown building

Birmingham-based Big Communications recently purchased its current headquarters on Second Avenue North to accommodate fast growth.

John Montgomery, Big Communication's founder and president, said the agency has occupied the building at 2121 Second Ave. N. for the past three years. As previously reported, the company signed a lease for the property a few years ago and moved from its location in Five Points South.

Big's building is 26,000 square feet and was built in 1924. It's located next door to the popular Collins Bar.

Montgomery said the atmosphere of Second Avenue North made the purchase even more attractive, beyond just facilitating space for the growing agency.

"It helps us in showcasing our people and our expertise to clients and, in our current recruiting mode, also attracts top talent interested in a high-tech capabilities workspace — and one located on one of Birmingham’s most vibrant streets," Montgomery said.
