Have you seen the giant Amazon boxes that popped up around Birmingham last week? The boxes are a creative signal of the city’s official intent to pursue the tech giant’s second headquarters location.
The boxes are the first phase of the Bring Amazon to Birmingham – or “BringAtoB” – campaign, which will engage citizens in and around the city to share why Amazon should call the Magic City home. Citizens are encouraged to participate by using the hashtag #BringAtoB and tagging @amazon on social media, telling the tech giant why Birmingham is the perfect fit for HQ2. All #BringAtoB photos and comments will be captured and displayed on BringAtoB.com.
At REV, we also love seeing the added vibrancy on the street as patrons enjoy outdoor dining in our beautiful city. As indoor dining reopens, cities across the country are realizing that ending expanded outdoor dining could mean leaving money on the table.
Although the Greyhound Bus Terminal was renovated in the ’70s, many original elements of the building remained and have now been become historic highlights in the present-day adaptive reuse project. Join us on a photo tour of the historic space!
