Five Points South: Preserving Neighborhood Values
Birmingham’s first streetcar suburb immediately attracted neighbors of economic and religious diversity. Over one hundred years later, Five Points South residents and merchants are working together to sustain its legacy as an open, welcoming community. The collective values of the neighborhood are at the heart of a recent forward-looking plan to hold on to their unique character while preparing for new growth. Exciting parts of the plan are in effect now with new projects coming in 2019 and beyond. As you would expect from this neighborhood, they did it their way, and are now a model program for other neighborhoods.
On April 13 or April 14, join the Five Points Alliance for a special tour of the Five Points South neighborhood. Learn about the history and recent growth of this area fueled by leading culinary artists and niche retailers, and how this area has transformed from industrial neighborhood to a family-friendly entertainment district filled with historic homes.
This event was made possible through The Caring Foundation of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama.
