Downtown will get a nearly year-round City Market and a taller downtown …
The vote was met with applause Monday night after the council selected the Market Plaza proposal. Local builder Keith Woodard intends to purchase and redevelop a city-owned parking lot into a nine-story building that will have homes, offices and stores.
In context, this is a pretty fast decision for local government.
This is another reason to live close to Downtown Charlottesville … more walkable to more stuff typically = increased property values and higher quality of life.
Did they ever figure out what caused the City building to catch on fire in December?
