C-Ville reports that the Waterhouse in downtown Charlottesville met its deadline, and Downtown Charlottesville is nearing its welcome of Worldstrides. I suspect that bringing a couple hundred new employees downtown is going to make things a bit busier – lunch, happy hour, parking(?)
Worldstrides is likely to be a big boon to the downtown economy â€¦ I wonder if any of these folks will consider moving into the City to take full advantage of the walkable lifestyle of the city.
New commercial and new residential condos coming to Charlottesville*
Background and history on the Waterhouse:
– Above Water – WorldStrides extends lease, awaits new home – C-Ville – 9/2011
– Around the corner: WorldStrides set to occupy Waterhouse – The HooK – 5/2011
– Incremental: Waterhouse rises, raises County ire – The HooK – 2/2011
* I have a post on condos in downtown Charlottesville coming this week.
