City Center Revitalization is one of REV Birmingham’s four key strategies for moving Birmingham forward. Big developments in the Theatre District, anchored by the historic Alabama Theatre and the McWane Science Center, are shining a light on a downtown in which people can live, work and play! Major fundraising for the renovation of the historic Lyric Theater is serving as a catalyst for other surrounding projects, including new lofts across the street from the McWane Center. Nearby, an experienced local developer is pursuing plans to renovate another anchor building in the district. Join us for our December breakfast briefing where we will outline our strategy for the Theater District, highlight projects underway and outline some of the services and resources REV offers developers interested in areas like the Theater District.
Guest speakers include Kyle Kruse, who is developing K Lofts, developer Howard McKay, Alabama Theatre General Manager Brant Beene and retired BBA Vice President Tom Cosby, now leading efforts to raise funds to renovate the Lyric Theatre.
