REV Birmingham is collecting responses from downtown residents for its 2013 City Center Loft survey. The annual survey of loft owners and renters assesses general attitudes as wells as needs and wishes for goods and services. Data collected will give REV, developers, retailers and restaurateurs insight into which services residents want to see more of downtown, and provide the demographics businesses depend on when making decisions about locating to Birmingham.
The survey includes 35 questions and takes less than 10 minutes to complete.
“What happens in the City Center has a major impact on the entire metropolitan area,” said REV Birmingham District Manager, Robert Emerick. “We’re attracting more people downtown every day and this survey gives us the information we need to advance REV’s goal of making the City Center one of the most desirable places to the live in the metro area.”
The last survey was conducted in December 2010 with a total of 181people participating. More than 200 people responsed, representing residents in more than 25 multi-tenant buildings in Birmingham’s Loft District. The estimated residential population of the Loft District was about 2,000. The total population of the City Center was about 4,000. Today’s City Center population is estimated at 6,300 people, including UAB and Five Points South residents.
