Feels like the real estate machine is heating up in Charlottesville. Buildings are disappearing.
I think there used to be a median with trees on route 29.
This new asphalt, District Avenue, runs northwest off Rt. 29 to two-hundred and fifty “luxury apartments” under construction, now leasing.
…living at its finest located in Charlottesville, Virginia, just steps away from The Shops at Stonefield – the new gathering place for Charlottesville residents. We’re close to everything and a haven from it all.–Stonefield Commons
Walking in the County southeast past the shops at Stonefield. Enjoying the new sidewalk and trees. Headed home. Arriving at the “Main Street” of the County, US Route 29, the neighborhood model takes on a new light. How is the pedestrian meant to cross into Charlottesville? Carefully. Not sure exactly how many lanes there are, standing on one side they are a challenge to count. Big asphalt. Twelve lanes?
There are lots of hashmarks scattered about the intersection, providing guidance to motorists about how to negotiate the DMZ. I didn’t see a crosswalk.
It seems that “transit” in the county means four wheels and a motor. If you have the misfortune to engage in bipedal locomotion, be fleet of foot. What momma said. Look both ways before crossing this road.
In an alternate reality.
My fears regarding the future of neighborhoods? Cut them open to get to the golden eggs, trade them for a handful of magic beans, shrink National Historic Districts and ADC’s to the size of handkerchiefs, widen roads, install sewage pipes in the air, cut down the trees, fire engines everywhere. Anything is possible.
Charlottesville Tomorrow has the story:

lost his/her home and family. Small comfort that it was to density and not the Rodenator
