Cahaba Village Plaza is a mixed use retail and shopping center located on the former dirt pile site on U.S. Highway 280 at Green Valley Road. Developed by Bayer Properties, it is anchored by a 50,000 square-foot Whole Foods Market which opened in February 2007. The 15-acre development contains 46,000 square feet of retail space, two outparcels, and 22 residential condominiums, developed independently by Arlington Properties and marketed at between $470,000 to $580,000.

The project was designed by Crawford McWilliams Hatcher Architects with Nimrod Long & Associates handling the landscape plan. It is envisioned by the developer as a sibling of Mountain Brook's historic commercial villages, with "a design and atmosphere similar to that of Mountain Brook Village and English Village."1

Brice Building Company constructed the $25 million development which included a reconfiguration of Green Valley Road's intersection with Highway 280, as well as moving an existing water main and burying an existing drainage ravine in a culvert. The relocation of the intersection was at the center of a lawsuit between Mountain Brook and Vestavia Hills while rezoning for the proposed shopping center spurred opposition from neighbors.

The planned Stoney River Steaks restaurant never materialized. Instead, an 8,900 square-foot three-unit commercial expansion was constructed, now housing Yogurt Mountain, Alfred Angelo bridal shop, and one other tenant.

Bayer sold the shopping center to Clarion Partners of New York City in 2010. In 2017 it was acquired purchased for $59.9 million by an investor group affiliated with L&B Realty Advisors of Dallas, Texas.
