Woodard Properties’ diverse portfolio not only includes student, traditional, affordable, and commercial properties, it also includes vacant land for future development. Projects have included historical rehabilitation, land subdivision, new home construction, commercial properties, and student housing. Woodard Properties remains involved in all phases of development, management, and maintenance of all its properties.


In the Fall of 2022, Woodard Properties acquired a significant parcel of land at 501 Cherry Avenue, directly opposite Tonsler Park. The company has joined hands with the Piedmont Housing Alliance and Fifeville Neighborhood Association with a plan to develop the property into a mixed-use space. The space would include a grocery store, non-profit organizations, and residential housing to address the area’s ongoing need for affordable housing.


Woodard Properties purchased the well-known Shops at Cherry Avenue shopping center in the Fifeville neighborhood in the spring of 2021. They gave the center an aesthetic upgrade to support the growth and success of the locally-owned businesses that operate there.




Acquired in 2007 by Woodard Properties, McIntire Plaza is a mixed-use neighborhood home to over one hundred small businesses, 36 residential units, and 32,000 SF of new and renovated commercial space. Located just 1 mile from Charlottesville Downtown Mall, McIntire Plaza is home to an eclectic mix of food, art, retail, office space, and several health and fitness-related activities such as yoga, Jazzercise, Ballroom Dance, Fitness Gym, Rock Climbing, Jiu-Jitsu, and other local entrepreneurship ventures.


Market Square was first purchased by Keith Woodard in 2005. It is conveniently located within walking distance of the Downtown Mall. Since then, the Woodard Properties team has made various updates to the interior spaces and added some bright and colorful exterior paint. Market Square offers a variety of commercial spaces, which include: offices, flex space, storage, and warehouses.
