REV focuses our work in Birmingham’s City Center and the historic commercial districts of Woodlawn and Ensley. Where ever we work, we always say community leads and design feeds – which means that we examine the pieces of a community and work with stakeholders to agree on a vision and design strategies that fuel it. We confront challenges with daring problem solving and a collaborative spirit to help our neighbors realize their dreams.
REV provides services for Birmingham yaysayers who need help organizing and strategizing; local startups and small businesses in or interested in the city of Birmingham; and developers and investors who are contributing to Birmingham’s renaissance. Learn more about how REV can help you contribute to making Birmingham a vibrant place!
REV hosts a number of initiatives and events that are designed to prove markets where others didn’t believe they exist. Events are a powerful tool to show the potential of a places, programs and businesses. REV’s register of initiatives and events changes as the city changes. Learn more about what we’re doing now.
