Discussed for years, the redevelopment of the Southtown Court housing project moved one step closer to reality on April 13 when the Birmingham City Council voted to rezone the property from multiple dwelling to mixed-use.

The council voted 7-0 to rezone, with Councilor Valerie Abbott abstaining and Councilor Crystal Smitherman absent.

Demolition will start in mid-June, with the first phase of residential construction scheduled for the fall. The new development will include up to 560 housing units, equally divided between federally subsidized housing and market-rate rentals. Of those, 220 units will be “affordable housing.”
