Did you know that more than one-fourth of Alabama residents call the city of Birmingham home? Birmingham and its sub-cities are known today for their friendly people, amazing local businesses, bustling food scene, inspiring tech start-ups, and most notably its affordable cost of living.

It’s no shock to us why so many young professionals are moving here to plant their roots. Highway 280 is one of the most popular areas within Birmingham for young professionals to live because of its central location and easy access to major highways and interstates.
