A design center for home buyers is now open in Charlottesville.
The Southern Development Homes Design Center on Cherry Avenue allows for one-stop shopping for interior elements. Those involved say this is a big step forward for the city and the homebuilding industry.
"All the homebuilders are very aware of what all the other homebuilders are doing and what Southern Development is doing will be, grab the attention of the other homebuilders and I think you'll see more innovation,” said Tim Hulbert, President of the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The new center will provide design options that used to be spread out over dozens of vendors, now in one location.
