October 1, 2020 – The City of Birmingham’s Community Development Department has launched a pilot incentive program to improve the facades of buildings within priority redevelopment areas. The program is designed to enhance the front appearance of buildings to increase property values, improve the marketability of space within the buildings and draw additional business and foot traffic to the area.
The Community Development Department has identified nine priority redevelopment areas. Those areas are:
Ensley Commercial Business District
Fourth Avenue Business District
North Birmingham Commercial District
Eighth Avenue Business District
Lomb-Tuscaloosa Avenue Commercial District
Downtown West Commercial District
Portions of the Downtown Northwest Commercial District
Portions of Woodlawn Commercial District
Portions of East Lake Commercial District
