Lemar Story, a CO.STARTERS alum and finalist in the inaugural The Big Pitch presented by PNC, recently opened a brick and mortar location for Life Touch Massage. If you’re looking for a great massage, head to the Parkside District. You’ll find him at 1223 2nd Avenue South. Moving into the city of Birmingham in his own space was Lemar’s dream when he first sought services from REV. We’re thrilled to see his dream come to fruition!

Also… SmallBox Company is back at Railroad Park! Their first tenant of 2017 is Birmingham Candy Company, owned by Wayne and Cassie Bolden. Two more re-purposed shipping containers are planned for the Railroad Park site, and two others are being prepared for placement in other Birmingham commercial districts.  Want to test your idea through a short-term lease in a Box? Contact Eric Tasker at smallboxco@gmail.com or 205.229.3189 for more info!

Forstall Art Center is having a Grand Opening! They moved onto 20th Street North this January, but are having a little party to celebrate getting comfortable in their new space. Stop by this Friday and Saturday for some discounted art supplies or just to check out their new digs. They’ve lively addition to 20th Street North and we can’t wait to celebrate with them!

And lastly – REVeal Kitchen and the Pizitz Food Hall were mentioned in Fast Company Magazine as example of innovation in the U.S. We couldn’t be more proud and happy for Bayer Properties on this recognition!
