     REV Birmingham (REV) revitalizes places and energizes business to create vibrancy in the City of Birmingham. REV is an economic development organization that stimulates business growth and improves quality of life in Birmingham’s City Center and its Neighborhood Commercial Centers. REV fuels commercial vitality through proactive business recruitment and retention activities, and by encouraging private and public investments that support economic growth citywide. REV’s initiatives generate positive results for partners, enhance tax revenue, generate and sustain jobs, increase tourism and positively influence perceptions about the City of Birmingham.

    REV is a private-public partnership that was formed in 2012 by the strategic merger of Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham.

    REV City Center – REV Birmingham partners with the business community and the City of Birmingham to create sustainable business districts in which people live, work and play throughout Birmingham’s 365-block City Center. REV’s staff works one-on-one with business owners on recruitment and retention strategies and helps developers understand incentives and navigate issues related to revitalization projects.

    REV Neighborhoods – REV Birmingham works on the ground in urban commercial districts to organize merchants and spark private-public revitalization partnerships. Implementing the National Main Street Program’s Four Points Approach(R) – organization, promotion, design, economic restructuring – REV partners with neighborhoods in which visible commercial development progress has been made.

    REV Business – REV Birmingham’s Business Growth and Innovation team is committed to helping small business owners define and achieve their goals, moving their plan from concept to reality. REV’s business coaches assist with planning, access to capital and location services. REV Birmingham also implements innovative programs like the Urban Food Project, developing food-related businesses to create jobs and improve access to healthy food.

    REV Development – REV Birmingham’s catalytic development team identifies properties that are holding a community back and revitalizes them. Those properties become catalysts for private sector development in target communities. REV works as a direct developer, and as a partner with private or non-profit organizations in bringing new life to under-utilized properties.

      You can buy handmade scarves and jewelry and get your fill of original photography and vintage clothing, but this weekend's Holiday Craft Bazaar is about a lot more than just stocking stuffers. That's the message spread by REV Birmingham and the Forest Park South Avondale Merchant Association as the 8th annual bazaar--expected to be the most successful in the event's history-- brings 30 local craftsmen and positive economic impact to the neighborhoods.

      City leaders and business owners say events like the bazaar are just one stitch in the fabric of Birmingham's buy-local movement that indicates a strengthening downtown economy and growing consumer desire to support communities through the power of the almighty dollar. Collapse

      BIRMINGHAM, Alabama – Birmingham will kick off a plan to place artistic lighting installments under downtown overpasses and at other key structures on June 27, when it will flip the switch on an art-light installment under the 18th Street viaduct near Railroad Park, managers of the project said today.

      The 18th Street installment – designed by San Antonio artist Bill FitzGibbons - is meant to encourage pedestrian traffic and link First Avenue North and the east gate of Railroad Park. The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham has provided a $247,000 grant to fund the installment and to develop a master plan for art-light installments at other key locations in the city center. The first installment, with railroad tracks on the bridge above, will be called “LightRails.” Collapse
