By: Bryan Davis | Publication: Birmingham Business Journal

Once the winner of the Urban Land Institute of Atlanta's Award for Excellence, Pepper Place will play host to Birmingham's new Urban Land Institute chapter on Wednesday evening.
ULI Birmingham, currently a satellite of Atlanta's chapter, will be dusting off the 2002 ULI Study on Downtown Birmingham, taking a then and now look at accomplishments over the last 12 years.

Some of the original authors of the study will headline the panel discussion on Birmingham's rebirth, including Bill Gilchrist, now director of place-based planning for the city of New Orleans, Cheryl Morgan, a member of the Design Review Committee, and Richard Pigford, partner at Architecture Works.

The night will include refreshments from James Lewis, executive chef and owner of Bettola, and it will take place with the backdrop of “The Art of Alabama Food” photo exhibit at Pepper Place. The event will start at 5:30.
