BLOC Real Estate works with property portfolio Sellers to develop asset disposition programs that result in facility reuse and revitalization, thereby improving the quality of life in neighborhoods and commercial redevelopment districts. The projects below represent land transactions negotiated by BLOC on behalf of the Birmingham City Schools to dispose of surplus school properties. Reuse at each of these sites serves as examples of transformative community economic development and expansion of the city tax base (by putting these sites into productive use).
