Songs of Selma

The St. James Hotel developer is planning to bring a restaurant to Songs of Selma Park at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

The Selma City Council is ready to see action on plans brought by St. James Hotel developer to bring a restaurant to Songs of Selma Park and redevelop the former Byrd School.

During their work session on Thursday, the council asked Mayor James Perkins Jr. for an update on negotiations with Rhaglan Hospitality, the developers of the St. James Hotel, to open a restaurant in the Songs of Selma Park at the foot of the Edmund Pettus Bridge and to covert the former Byrd School to multifamily housing.

Councilman Clay Carmichael pointed out that Rhaglan Hospitality brought proposals for a fast-casual restaurant in the Songs of Selma Park to the city in February, but the council hasn’t heard an update. The facility would be either a one-story building or a renovated shipping container and would employ five associates.
