Business + Community + Revitalization

When it comes to revitalizing our urban commercial districts, we go straight to our small business owners and residents and ask what they want and need in their own neighborhood. We assess the existing economic wealth and opportunities for growth. And we execute small-scale solutions that will create meaningful, long-term impressions.   

REVIVE 2.0, an initiative of REV Birmingham and its partners, will combine tangible public improvements with a street-style and energy that sparks community momentum, stakeholder engagement and change that endures. 

And we want you to be a part of it.

We believe in our communities. We are Birmingham.

The Street Life Project


What makes a city thrive? We think it's all about the street life. We bring business and community together on the streets and sidewalks of Birmingham. 

October 2013, REVIVE, took five commercial districts by storm. POP-UP shops filled vacant spaces with homegrown retail; thousands poured out to party in city streets and relish at dynamic events; public improvements and cleanups enhanced curb appeal and sparked movements of neighborhood pride; startups boosted their enterprises through retail revolution workshops. It was all about demonstrating how creative, effectively applied urban revitalization techniques could – in one week – change perceptions about some of our city’s most promising neighborhoods.

Now in 2015, REVIVE 2.0 is about transformation, but over the course of an entire year. In concentrated areas of three of Birmingham’s core commercial districts, REV and its community partners will walk the blocks, work with property and business owners, survey the public, make physical assessments, clean up streets, launch public space improvements, recruit new businesses, try new ideas, and offer the platform the soul of each community to shine.

What’s the final result? At the end of this REVOLUTION, these places will feel vibrant with people, life and activity.
