Harbert Realty Services will serve as developer for Red Mountain Theater Company (RMTC) as they build their new arts campus at 1600 Third Avenue South between 16th and 17th Street South. Harbert also provided site selection services for RMTC’s new location.
The nonprofit is also partnering with architect LIVE Design Group and general contractor Brasfield & Gorrie to complete the project. The team expects construction work to be complete in summer 2021.
For several years, RMTC has been looking for a place to house all its operations under one roof as it looks to increase efficiency and effectiveness in its mission to engage the community through art.
The new location will include rehearsal and classroom spaces, a 400-seat theater as well as administrative and shop offices.
In addition to theater productions, RMTC offers educational programs for young people and professionals. The nonprofit began as Summerfest Musical Theatre in 1979.
