The City of Birmingham’s Design Review Committee has approved East Lake developer Vince Amaro’s plans to renovate the façades of two buildings he owns in the newly-renamed East Lake Station (at the 7600 block of 1st Ave North)!
One of the spaces is the new home of Maurice Miller Photography, and build-out will begin soon on the adjacent space for Organically Yours — which happens to be one of the finalists in our 2016 BIG PITCH, presented by PNC. The building will be refaced with white subway tile and black trim. New window casements will be installed along with new lighting, signage and landscaping. That’s a big change from the “before” photo below!
REV assisted in helping develop the presentation for Design Review. Kudos to architect Amanda Loper of David Baker Architects for the awesome design!
The two properties serve two sides of the same purpose—to expose people to art.
From expert seamstresses to experienced sound engineers, residents of Woodlawn have come together at Porch Parties. On December 13, they’ll share their skills with their neighbors at the Woodlawn-Made Holiday Market at Bungalow Bungalow from 7-9 p.m.
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.
