REVIVE: The Street Life Project
“REVIVE: The Street Life Project” is collaborative program that will activate empty storefronts, generate foot traffic and organize street-level improvements to restore interest in five target commercial districts in Birmingham. REVIVE will demonstrate revitalization strategies like pop-up shops, streetscape improvement and placemaking efforts that showcase what Birmingham’s urban commercial districts can look like.
Throughout the month of October, we will focus on five target districts, providing a vision for what these communities can become and a platform for the soul of five urban villages to shine: 3rd Ave. North from 19th to 20th Street, East Lake, Ensley, Five Points South and Woodlawn.
At the end of the 2013 REVIVE campaign, local property owners will have more qualified leads for leasing or sales, existing business owners will see an increase in traffic, aspiring entrepreneurs will have opportunities to pilot their businesses and proud placemakers will have even more livable spaces to enjoy within their communities.
The REVIVE 2013 Schedule Includes:
Downtown, 3rd Ave. N. – September 30 – October 4
East Lake – October 7 – October 11
Ensley – October 14 – October 18
Five Points South – October 21 – October 25
Woodlawn – October 28 – November 1
