February 7, 2022 · Uncategorized, Value of Downtown Report
As you’ve probably heard by now, we recently released our Value of Downtown report. We found a lot of valuable data which is included in it – but we know it’s a lot to take in. So, to make it easier on you, we’re going to try and break it down a little! One of the areas we excelled in was our walk score. Downtown Birmingham scored either on par or higher than a lot of other downtown districts.
