The Brown Marx Building - the last empty building in the "heaviest corner on Earth" - could soon be developed into a hotel.

Tupelo Hotels 1031 Acquisition II LLC purchased the building at the corner of 1st Avenue North and 20th Street North in downtown Birmingham from Hughes Capital Partners late last year for $3.7 million, public records show. The company also bought the Allright Parking Deck at 1901 First Ave. N. for $1.6 million.

According to information from the city of Birmingham, the purchaser plans to develop the property as a hotel.

Tupelo Hotels 1031 Acquisition II LLC shares the same address as Ascent Hospitality, which developed the Elyton Hotel in the adjacent historic Empire Building. Ascent is also developing a limited service Marriott hotel with 120 rooms in the former Alagasco headquarters building.
