REV Birmingham marked a milestone at the end of 2022: 10 YEARS since the merger of Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham made us REV!
REV’s mission is to create vibrant commercial districts. Our efforts help breathe new life into Birmingham. From historic building rehab consulting to our refresh of 20th Street North to Woodlawn Street Markets full of up-and-coming businesses, we’re proving markets in Birmingham where others didn’t see the potential, spurring more investment across a vibrant city.

Magic City Match is a program that transforms lives and opens doors for Black entrepreneurs and business owners. Led by REV Birmingham and powered by Prosper, this initiative aims to create opportunities for Black-owned businesses by matching them with brick-and-mortar spaces where they can thrive. After a successful pilot program in 2022, Magic City Match is back in action and ready to empower a new wave of entrepreneurs.
One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
Woof, woof! I’ve been having an absolute blast visiting my sister in Downtown Birmingham. I can hardly wait to share all the details with you once you return from your vacation. In the meantime, I wanted to put paw to paper and tell you all about it, with the hope of convincing you that moving Downtown could be the most wonderful decision ever.
