Located in the heart of Charlottesville, just minutes from downtown, I-64, UVA, and the 5th Street Shopping Center, Southwood is a national model for neighborhood–driven redevelopment. Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville has been working with the residents of the current Southwood Mobile Home Park to design a community that will facilitate a holistic transformation of the neighborhood and improve the quality of life for all of its residents. 

Southwood will offer a range of housing types attainable to a broad economic spectrum and will feature an array of amenities including parks, community centers, and commercial resources within an architecturally diverse and sustainable neighborhood.  

Southwood is conveniently located just south of the City of Charlottesville off of Old Lynchburg Road. Biscuit Run Park borders the community to the south and west. Other neighborhoods and The Covenant School border the community to the north.
