REV Birmingham marked a milestone at the end of 2022: 10 YEARS since the merger of Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham made us REV!
REV’s mission is to create vibrant commercial districts. Our efforts help breathe new life into Birmingham. From historic building rehab consulting to our refresh of 20th Street North to Woodlawn Street Markets full of up-and-coming businesses, we’re proving markets in Birmingham where others didn’t see the potential, spurring more investment across a vibrant city.
