Charlottesville’s West 2nd Project Cancelled

On Tuesday, the announcement came that a major downtown Charlottesville development project that has been in the works for almost 5 years has been canceled.
According to a release, Keith O. Woodard of Woodard Properties has decided to immediately end the development of the West 2nd project – a project across from the Water Street Parking Garage that would have included residential, retail and office space and generated tax revenue for the city.
The mixed-use development featured a permanent home for the City Market to include improved facilities, restrooms and utility connections — but reportedly the last straw was yet another unexpected delay of the city Board of Architectural Review on Aug. 21st
