One of REV’s core values in Community Leads > Design Feeds. That means we look to our community partners to identify community needs and REV helps them create solutions. So when our Ensley partners identified a lacking of lunch options, we supported them in creating Ensley Eats. The idea is simple, yet impactful: bring in a couple food trucks, music, and people will come. Since its inception, the initiative has drawn residents, employees, and business owners to enjoy some of Birmingham’s best food trucks.
Ask any of our partners in the neighborhood, and they will inform you that the event is bigger than food trucks. The Ensley Merchants Association is using the initiative to increase pedestrian activity in the business district and to demonstrate the need for more restaurants to serve the community. Join us for the next Ensley Eats, which will happen on July 12th from 10 AM to 1 PM. #EnsleyAlive #EnsleyEats
This Sunday, a group of volunteers will embark on a façade improvement project at The Shop on 1st Avenue – cleaning and painting the outside of the building.
From the terrazzo floors to the alley mural, the New Ideal building is full of history, and its redevelopment is sure to bring even more vibrancy to the already bustling block it shares with The Pizitz. Here are three reasons we are excited about the New Ideal Lofts project – and we hope it makes you say #YayBham too!
Come join Young Pioneers of Birmingham, in support of REV Birmingham, for coffee and doughnuts with Bill Smith of Shipt and David Fleming of REV on Thursday, July 19 at 7:30 a.m. at Shipt HQ!
