On Saturday, March 25th, nineteen UAB students representing three sororities participated in UAB’s student-led Into the Streets Program, a volunteer service and leadership program. The students dedicated their Saturday morning to picking up trash, disposing of cigarette butts, and pulling weeds from tree beds and bench planters downtown on 2nd Avenue North. REV is proud to partner with UAB on cleanup projects here, in theFive Points South and Ensley neighborhood commercial districts. Thank you to everyone who participated!
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!
