What REV is doing now
REV Birmingham is a place-based revitalization and economic development nonprofit on a mission to create vibrant commercial districts.
From 2023 to 2025, we are executing a strategic plan to support entrepreneurs who dream of filling vacant spaces across the city, implement the City Center Master Plan in several downtown districts identified as strategic opportunity areas, and work with the Woodlawn community to strengthen their commercial district.
View our slides detailing our work below, and reach out to schedule a presentation from our team if you’d like to know more. We love to share with civic, industry and social organizations as well as interested investors about REV’s vision and how we intend to get there!

Magic City Match is a program that transforms lives and opens doors for Black entrepreneurs and business owners. Led by REV Birmingham and powered by Prosper, this initiative aims to create opportunities for Black-owned businesses by matching them with brick-and-mortar spaces where they can thrive. After a successful pilot program in 2022, Magic City Match is back in action and ready to empower a new wave of entrepreneurs.
One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
Woof, woof! I’ve been having an absolute blast visiting my sister in Downtown Birmingham. I can hardly wait to share all the details with you once you return from your vacation. In the meantime, I wanted to put paw to paper and tell you all about it, with the hope of convincing you that moving Downtown could be the most wonderful decision ever.
