What’s Going in Across From Crozet Park?

Houses. There will be houses. Built by someone.

Stony Point Design were going to be building, but as of last week, they will not be.

And today, they have announced a new path, one that no longer includes residential construction. Their work as developers and designers has provided them with the opportunities to expand outside Charlottesville, and to oversee larger projects not only in our area, but throughout the Commonwealth and beyond. They have been able to acquire properties in RichmondCharlottesville, and Cape Cod, on which they will be building multi-family, office, and experiential real estate projects. These projects are building on the great things that they started here in Charlottesville. And we couldn’t be happier for them.

We talked in 2017 about this development, and three others.

  • Jarmans Gap – 12 houses – timeline still unknown
  • Across from Crozet Park project – that’s the subject of this story.
  • Sparrow Hill – (on 250 near Rocket Coffee) – well underway; next phase just opened
  • Glenbrook (between Parkside Village and Foothill Crossing) – well underway

Good Job, Albemarle County.

Albemarle’s New Dress Code

Good.

via email.

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

On February 28, I communicated with you about the enforcement of our student conduct policy and dress code practices to better meet our responsibility to provide an educational environment in our schools in which all students can fulfill their highest potential.

Our policy states that any clothing that interferes with or disrupts our educational environment is unacceptable. This requirement has always been present in our policy; it is not new.

Effective tomorrow, Tuesday, March 12, the wearing of clothing with imagery associated with organizations that promote white supremacy, racial division, hatred, or violence will not be permitted in our schools.

CCAC Meeting – February 2019 | Schools, and Recycling

This should be an interesting meeting, seeing as how most everyone in Crozet benefits from having a great school system. I’ll reserve my cynicism for my in-meeting tweets.

Piedmont Place & Mountainside Change Ownership

RE: Piedmont Place, from Crozet Gazette

Piedmont Place developers Drew and Michelle Holzwarth have sold the downtown mixed-use building, considered the first demonstration of what the commercial redevelopment of the former Barnes Lumber property could resemble, to Andrew and Isabelle Baldwin of Greenwood.

RE: Mountainside, from The Daily Progress

Mountainside Senior Living in Crozet is being sold from the nonprofit Jefferson Area Board for Aging to a for-profit company.

She said JABA has struggled to keep the facility financially sustainable without the infusion of additional funds over the last 18 months.

“We realized that we wanted to find a solution that would allow everyone to remain where they were and would allow us to continue to be fiscally responsible to JABA,” she said.


Part of the sale guarantees that current residents would stay and that there is a continued commitment to a percentage of low-income spaces, Keane said.
