Edgehill is a vibrant community with greenspaces, shops, and restaurants, in the middle of Birmingham’s research district, on the foothills of red mountain in Birmingham, AL.
For more than 80 years, Southtown Court has been called home by countless families. With this development, this site will be transformed into a mixed-use community, honoring the legacy of those families while positioning Edgehill at Southtown to be an integral part of Birmingham’s growing medical research district.
A Vibrant Mixed Income Neighborhood
The multi-family developments coming to Edgehill are ideal for those who desire to live in an urban setting with the ability to walk to restaurants, retail and employment within the site, as well as surrounding local amenities.
In keeping with the mission of the Housing Authority of Birmingham, the first new construction on the property will be affordable senior and family housing.
— Medical Research
Connecting Innovation and Community
Given the site’s proximity to the University of Alabama at Birmingham, Ascension St. Vincent’s, Southern Research and the VA Medical Center, a key focus is on uses that will complement and expand the city’s healthcare and biotech sectors, spur innovation, and create new synergies.
— Retail & Hospitality
Everything You Need in a Walkable Community
Edgehill has a shared vision that builds on the significant strengths of the area to create new assets that serve the community’s needs and benefit the city as a whole.
The heart of the development along 9th Avenue will feature office stacked over a variety of retail. Interspersed with open spaces and public plazas, this activated street will have unique sense of place for residents and visitors alike to enjoy.
— Commercial Office
A Truly Transformational Development
Surrounded by leaders in medicine and biotech research, Edgehill is an ideal location for general office, technology companies, or additional medical uses. With offices dispersed throughout the site, residents will have proximate employment opportunities. Those employed both within Edgehill and at neighboring campuses are poised to have immediate access to the retail and dining amenities, highlighting its nature as a true mixed-use community.
Southside Development Co. is a joint venture of some of the South’s best real estate developers. SDC believes positive, lasting impact happens when public and private partnerships work collaboratively with communities to enhance quality of life.
The goal of Southside Development Company and the Housing Authority Birmingham District is to offer new opportunities to the neighborhood to better serve nearby residents as well as the surrounding community.
The highly awaited mixed-use community in the heart of Birmingham’s medical and research district will be known as Edgehill at Southtown.
As demolition and site work continues, the development team is preparing to begin construction of new housing as well as office and retail spaces on the property.
