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!
TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
