Brandon Green Street
The Brandon Avenue 7.5 acre redevelopment vision is a 21st century take on the Academical Village: it’s an urban, mixed-use street centered on a multi-functional open space. It is designed to showcase sustainability, support learning and promote health. The design aims to extend and add to the rich fabric of pathways and open spaces that define the UVA Grounds. In addition to the innovative streetscape and storm water bioremediation, a series of new parks provide views into the South Lawn complex, the Kitty Foster site, and South Pond.
Ivy Corridor is a 14.5-acre redevelopment site stretching west along the north side of Ivy Road from Emmet Street to Copeley Road. The Ivy-Emmet corner is currently occupied by the Cavalier Inn, which will be demolished in June. In its place Phase 1 construction will build a corner green space and linear park through the center of the site that will also serve as a “working landscape” to store and cleanse storm water as well as improved pedestrian accommodation and tree-lined streetscape along the adjacent roadways. Future buildings will be built around the green in a phased sequence guided by programmatic need and funding capability. The future vision for the redeveloped site is a vibrant, mixed use community that forms a connection between Central, Arts and North Grounds.
UVA Research Park
The UVA Research Park is a 562-acre PDIP (Planned Development Industrial Park) owned by the UVA Foundation with the purpose of providing industrial partners and start-up companies in the region a place to grow and develop collaborative research relationships with the University of Virginia. Zoning allows for a wide variety of uses and up to 3.7 million square feet of development rights. The Foundation recently engaged architects and land planners to assist with a comprehensive review and update master plan – taking into consideration the regional development that has taken place around the Park since it was originally opened up. The revised master plan contemplates an amenity rich community with a mix of uses for 24×7 activity, connectivity to outdoor spaces, and one that embraces healthy living.
