About Montgomery Builds

Montgomery Builds aims to revitalize Dexter Avenue in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. Several years ago Dexter was a semi-deserted neighborhood. Bad zoning laws had caused decay and urban blight. So much transformative American history occurred on Dexter Avenue—a history too important to let crumble. It was this possibility that sparked the creation of Montgomery Builds™. We asked the Montgomery community for their input. We purchased several decaying boarded-up buildings on the block.

Our united vision remains not to demolish old historic buildings, but embrace them, have new structures grow up from them that will serve as thriving, sustainable platforms for creativity, community, innovation and healing.

It’s really about people—our stories and what connects us. One action builds to the next. That’s how Montgomery Builds.
