North Downtown

The Center of Everything

Beginning on the north side of the CSX railroad, North Downtown extends from the Downtown Mall, Charlottesville’s famous pedestrian mall, to the area just south of the Route 250 Bypass. It includes residential areas among long, scenic roads such as Park Street and McIntire Road. Proximity to bypass allows residents quick access to the University of Virginia, Barracks Road Shopping Center, and the Shops at Stonefield, as well as quick access to US 64 to Richmond and Staunton and Route 29 to the Charlottesville/Albemarle Airport and Washington D.C.

At the center of North Downtown is historic Court Square, site of the Albemarle County Courthouse and the oldest portion of the City of Charlottesville. Charlottesville’s original commercial center, some buildings in Court Square date back to the 1800s. The Square was the site of The Swan Tavern, owned and operated by Jack Jouett’s father. A plaque commemorating “Jouett’s Ride” from Louisa County to Charlottesville to save Thomas Jefferson from capture by the British during the Revolutionary War can be found at the site of the tavern.

A World of Home Options

Whatever you’re looking for in a home, you can find it in the homes for sale in North Downtown Charlottesville. There’s classic homes that have undergone extensive renovations, office space that has been converted into apartments, and recently built condominiums and townhomes. Families can find many affordably priced two level homes with multiple bedrooms, while recent grads and young professionals have a host of more modestly sized options.

The Best of Everything

A brief walk from the historic Square is a bustling, modern urban center with cultural options to rival the biggest of big cities. Located on the east end of the Downtown Mall, the Sprint Pavilion is home to the free-admission Fridays After Five concert series and ticketed concerts featuring some of the biggest musical acts in the country. A short walk west you’ll find The Paramount Theater, a restored film theater that doubles as a concert venue. The Paramount has hosted world-renowned performers like Joshua Bell and Diana Ross and also serves as a venue for the Virginia Film Festival. The culinary offerings on the Mall run the gamut from traditional Southern cuisine to classical French.
