Demand shows that Woodlawn, and the Wood Station community specifically, will eventually become a vibrant place to reside once more. Although this will take time, the steps to achieve this goal are underway.


Next up for the community are small, very affordable, and energy efficient homes that will be priced around $181,000 – The Cottages

“These newly constructed homes will provide an alternative for people who want a new home but are committed to living in Woodlawn,”

“Their design and quality will compete with any suburban new home community but cost thousands less.”

– Mechelle Wilder, ARC Realty, – Speaking with the BBJ

The Details:

  • 3 Bedrooms
  • 2 Bathrooms
  • Modeled according to the original homes (bungalows)
  • Builders – Drake Homes

There will be an open house, October 23, 1 – 4 p.m., provided by ARC Reality and Woodlawn Foundation.


These homes will represent the ever changing and growing culture, that is Avondale and Woodlawn. Geographic divides do not constitute a feeling of disconnect between the communities in down town.

Yes, there may be income, educational, and social differences, but the Magic City seems to bring us together through this wave of revitalization.


Get Excited, There’s Much More to Come!
