Habitat for Humanity is creating plans to redevelop the park with at least 500 affordable housing units.[1] Construction is not expected to begin until at least 2016.[2]

One aspect of a redeveloped Southwood could be an enhanced network of trails to allow bike and pedestrian access to the future Biscuit Run State Park. [3]

Supervisors endorsed a plan to work with Habitat on the project in October 2016. [4]

The Boys and Girls Club has a facility there that has been expanded in 2017. [5]

The rezoning will be conducted in two phases. The first will consist of two blocks, one of which will be mixed-use and the other will be mostly commercial. This first phase has been submitted to Albemarle County for review. [6]
