Around Town: West Main to the Downtown Mall

October 23, 2017

     West Main street runs west to east for about a mile, from the railroad bridge at 14th street to the Residence Inn at the west end of the downtown mall. About halfway from either end, it crosses over the Amtrak rails. Restaurants dot the north side of the street, almost from end to end, especially near the Amtrak station. Over the last several years, the south side of the street has undergone extensive development. New apartment complexes line the south side. Now, construction is beginning on the north side, and older buildings are coming down. Charlottesville's population grew 10% from 2010 to 2015, and growth continues today, as evidenced by the construction cranes along West Main. Here are some snapshots.
