The Pepper Place Complex includes Pepper Place, the Martin Biscuit Building, and the Ferguson showroom and warehouse. Many other independent businesses have located in the area to enjoy the synergy of an emerging, vibrant design and entertainment district.

Formerly the Dr. Pepper Syrup Plant and Bottling Company, the Pepper Place Complex is a group of seven buildings totaling more than 227,000 square feet. After undergoing extensive renovation, the complex currently houses Birmingham's premier design center as well as the Farmers’ Market, the Terrific New Theater, restaurants, and numerous shops, galleries, and businesses. Sloss Real Estate Company and Cathy Sloss Jones spearheaded this redevelopment and is responsible for leasing and managing the complex.

The focal point of Birmingham’s Lakeview Design District, the Pepper Place Complex is among Birmingham's 24 commercial revitalization districts that are subject to design review protection. This highly visible renovation project has been celebrated in numerous newspaper and magazine articles and a CNN television feature.
