CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A local neighborhood got to celebrate moving in Saturday. People were moving into Kindlewood, previously known as Friendship Court. 

The Piedmont Housing Alliance celebrated the first Kindlewood residents moving in, after seven years of resident-led redevelopment. 

“Today is the Kindlewood celebration, we are very excited. We right now have a new apartment,” resident Khailbar Saharzori said. 

The new units were driven by the residents who worked alongside community partners to design housing that is the best fit for the residents.
