“As the literal and figurative heart of their cities, downtowns represent and welcome residents, employees, and visitors from all walks of life,” says David Downey, President and CEO of the International Downtown Association (IDA), as he discusses the importance of downtown and the role it plays in keeping the vibrancy alive in our city centers!
Medical Properties Trust, our vitality sponsor for the Value of Downtown Report, is here to discuss how Birmingham has laid the foundation for you to grow your healthcare business. With its well-known healthcare systems and diverse communities rich in history and culture – the Magic City is the place you need to be!
Much of the “Birmingham character” that we appreciate and promote today is thanks to the many beautiful historic buildings and homes that still stand. Our concentration of historic structures is unique, and it’s an asset for our entire region’s economic development and growth, as that authenticity attracts people seeking sense of place and quality of life. But how do we ensure that the authenticity doesn’t begin to vanish as we continue to revive these historic structures?
