East Lake


7600 block of 1st Avenue North (West of Oporto Madrid)

East Lake is a beautiful residential community just minutes from downtown that boasts some of the city's most beloved destinations: Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve and Southern Museum of Flight, to name a few.

AND THAT'S NOT ALL... 

This area is home to many of Birmingham's creatives and a resurgent startup community, and during October 2015, we hope to unveil a destination brimming with local art, craft lovers, and thriving storefront businesses.

[BUT]

Tree wells are fallow. Paint is peeling. And there’s a gravel parking lot begging to be transformed into a community courtyard.

And you can make it happen.

Ensley


19th Street Ensley, between Avenue F & G

Ensley boasts a rich heritage that includes the birth of jazz at the iconic Tuxedo Junction, just blocks away from the historic commercial district. The Ramsay McCormick building, once headquarters for Tennessee Coal & Iron, remains the cornerstone of downtown Ensley.

And this is where REVIVE comes in...

Efforts to restore Ramsay McCormick have spearheaded revitalization efforts through a strategic partnership between REV Birmingham, City of Birmingham and the surrounding community. As we celebrate Ensley's remarkable history, we look forward to its vibrant future.

Ensley Opportunities


On the 600 block of 19th Street Ensley between Avenue F & G, vacant stores come to life with a Jazz House; a Cinema House screens cool films; and an Archive House highlights Ensley's history.

Can this vision become a reality? Yes... but not without you.

November 2015, find out how a little TLC and imagination can transform blighted properties, inspire a love for jazz, educate about art and history, and contribute to Ensley's ongoing renaissance.

Downtown


1800 & 1900 block of 3rd Avenue North

Downtown is a destination for professionals, visitors and urban-loving residents. Recent investment and new developments have put our City Center on track for continued growth and renewed vibrancy.

AND We predict this is only the beginning.

Join us on 3rd Avenue North as we work to revitalize this pivotal city block, just steps away from the heart of the Theatre District. We're leaving behind new public art, enhanced curb appeal, increased foot traffic, filled vacant spaces, tools for continued community success and an economy that builds from within.

And we want you to be there, right in the middle of it. So come on, downtown, Birmingham!
