1001 West Main

On a main street that is facing large-scale, mixed-use proposals, the sustainable approach of adaptive reuse taken at 1001 West Main is a refreshing change of pace, focusing on three key objectives: 1) Preserving the characteristics and qualities of the existing 1920’s structure 2) Adapting the building to become commercial and retail space, servicing the residents and workers (present and near future) of Mid-town Charlottesville, and 3) Encourage a lifestyle that provides options for walking, biking, and transit to promote healthy living and reduce dependence on automobile and energy use.
