Morris Avenue Eyecare has officially relocated to their new office at the historic 2229 Morris Avenue. Dr. Valencia Wells has invested more than $250,000 to acquire and renovate the new space and relocate sensitive eye exam equipment.
It was important to Dr. Wells that she remain in the city of Birmingham, and downtown in particular, to continue providing service to the residents and workers in the area. Her staff includes three full-time employees and three part-time employees.
Morris Avenue Eyecare is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and includes a retail shop for frame supplies and repairs.
REV partnered with Dr. Wells to assist with parking and is currently helping pursue incentives with partners at the City of Birmingham.
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!
This is obviously good for downtown… but why *exactly*? Here’s REV President & CEO David Fleming’s take on what the move means for downtown Birmingham’s place in the world now and in the future.
