At the June Woodlawn Street Market, REV’s Catalytic Development team shared designs for street improvements to 1st Ave S from 54th to 56th streets and asked which the community preferred. Now its time to test one of those designs.
If you have an interest in helping make Birmingham a more bikeable, walkable city, REV Birmingham is looking for volunteers to help install a tactical urbanism demonstration in the 5400-5600 blocks of 1st Avenue South in Woodlawn. We’ll use tape and temporary paint to lay out bike lanes and parallel parking and reduce travel lanes from four lanes to two. Then we’ll measure the impact and share the data with the designers who have been contracted by the City of Birmingham to create the final design.

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.
From the terrazzo floors to the alley mural, the New Ideal building is full of history, and its redevelopment is sure to bring even more vibrancy to the already bustling block it shares with The Pizitz. Here are three reasons we are excited about the New Ideal Lofts project – and we hope it makes you say #YayBham too!
