Woodward Corridor Housing in Birmingham is primarily single-family homes of exceptional value in distinctive neighborhoods. Although there are few remaining building sites the city has experienced a remarkable “building boom” in recent years featuring renovations, additions and new construction in place of older less functional dwellings. Upscale townhomes, condominiums and lofts, some of which offer live/work environments have also been introduced. This continual reinvestment in housing stock has resulted in a wide variety of home styles and stable property values. Education in Birmingham is highly valued. The schools, both public and private, offer a tradition of academic excellence that consistently rank them as some of the finest schools in the country. Students routinely demonstrate

achievement through high scores on national and state aptitude tests. Sports and extra-curricular activities are an important part of Birmingham’s successful education system. These activities benefit immeasurably from the involvement and investment made by the parents, businesses and community leadership of Birmingham. With so much to offer, Birmingham welcomes you as a place to “live, shop and play.”
