NEWS & VIEWS Habitat for Humanity Greater Charlottesville Recently Celebrated Two New Homeowners in a MixedIncome Community

Bennett’s Village, a local non-profit dedicated to building a place where all can play, is delighted to announce plans to build an accessible treehouse at Pen Park. Concept designs will debut at Stonefield at their July 30th Music on the Lawn event benefiting Bennett’s Village. Bennett’s Village is named after Bennett McClurken-Gibney. A boy who loved to play and happened to use a wheelchair to get around. Nearby playgrounds are not designed for all people—like those in wheelchairs or those with sensory disabilities. If Bennett’s family wanted him to have the freedom to play, they had to drive all the way to Richmond, home of Park365, the nearest accessible playground. Bennett’s sudden passing in February of 2018, at just five years old, left an immeasurable sense of loss in the lives of all who loved him. Inspired by his wish to have a birthday party at the Park365, they wanted to create a place here in our community where day-to-day real-world barriers could be forgotten and where ALL children and adults could enjoy the magic of connecting with the world and each other. So they partnered with the award-winning Baltimore-based landscape architecture firm Mahan Rykiel Associates (MRA) to create a place that will serve the needs of all, including people with mobility limitations, sensory processing disorders, and developmental delays. Bennett’s Village will announce phase one of their designs on July 30th, 2021. What began as a dream for one child has grown into a project that will meet a significant and growing need for people across the age spectrum and throughout our community. Census data in our region shows that we have more than 9,000 people under the age of 65 who have a disability. That number jumps to 1 in 3 when you look at those over 65. And these statistics do not even include those with temporary injuries or the many families who travel here for health care/treatment. We invite you to join us at Stonefield’s July 30th Music on the Lawn event, where we will share our next steps to make Bennett’s dream come true and how you can help play a part, while enjoying great music, food, and fun from 5-7 p.m. For more information on how you can help Bennett’s Village make Charlottesville a place where all can play, visit us online at www.bennettsvillage.org.

Recently, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville celebrated two families who purchased affordable homes in the Huntley Avenue Neighborhood. The dedication ceremony honored the partner families’ completion of Habitat’s homebuyer education and financial counseling curriculum, in conjunction with hundreds of hours of volunteer sweat equity, to prepare for the purchase of their new Habitat homes. For Marquita Thomas and her four boys, purchasing this home on Huntley is a symbol of her dedication and hard work. “It’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” says Marquita, a frontline worker for University of Virginia’s Health System. Throughout the past year, Marquita has worked nights at the hospital, helping deliver babies, so she could oversee virtual learning with her boys during the day. “This past year has been really, really stressful. When you think about all the steps you have to take you feel like you can’t do it, and that’s how I felt sometimes. But I just kept up with it. I never gave up.” At the event, Marquita’s perseverance and hard work were celebrated. In partnership with R.L. Beyer Custom Home Builders, Habitat has added affordable homeownership to this infill development located in the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood. “We believe that one of the keys to moving our society past a reflexive ‘us vs. them’ stance is to create opportunities for people from all walks of life to live, grow, learn and thrive together,” says Habitat President and CEO Dan Rosensweig. “We are so excited for Marquita and Lakeisha, their families and their new neighbors in Huntley.” About Habitat: Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville brings people together to build and rebuild homes and communities while catalyzing new pathways to safe, decent affordable housing. Our work has evolved from building one house at a time to developing vibrant, sustainable, mixed-income communities, where local families can achieve their dreams of homeownership. Since our founding in 1991, we have built 225 new homes and safely housed 2,000 neighbors, thanks to the commitment and dedication of our thousands of volunteers and supporters.

Commercial Real Estate:

What a Difference a Year Makes BY CARLA HUCKABEE

message. Particularly when long-time stalwarts The Downtown Grille closed after 21 years and The College Inn after 53 years, it was easy to get caught up in negative predictions and trends. Fortunately, the scale of vacancies and turnover isn’t un-precedented and isn’t beyond the capacity to be reabsorbed. Chris Engel, Director of Economic Development for Charlottesville, said “We’ve seen a little more turnover than we’re used to seeing and some popular, longtime businesses are leaving, but I expect those vacant storefronts to be filled pretty quickly.” Chipotle Mexican Grill has already taken The College Inn’s space. Stoner agrees. “The vacancy rate for the Downtown Mall has been statistically zero. That has stunted our ability to grow and remain vibrant and current. Turnover and vacancies can create opportunities for the next generation of entrepreneurs to come in and shape the market.” In Scottsville much of the commercial district is owned outright, according to Matthew Holt, REALTOR® with 1st Dominion Realty Inc. “We didn’t have very many businesses completely failing. And now everything has started to pop back up as customers are starting to engage with businesses in person again.”

Every Sector Contributing

While not every sector of the commercial real estate market has been hit equally hard, there are sparks of recovery coming from every direction. Office buildings nearing completion are poised to have their workers support local retail, restaurants, and services. Most notable in the area are the Center of Developing Entrepreneurs, (CODE) and the Apex Plaza Building. Developer Andrew Boninti, CHS Development, says “The CODE building is scheduled to open on Labor Day. Most of our tenants will still be working on the interior buildout of their spaces, but we should have one or two of our main tenants ready to move in around that date.” And just a few months afterwards, Apex Plaza is expected to be cleared for occupancy with most of their tenants completing buildout over the winter

A

year ago, the business and economic outlook was downright gloomy. Everyone was beginning to realize that COVID wasn’t going to just disappear at the end of the summer. Restaurants were shuttered or had switched to take out only. Most office employees were working from home and nearly all town centers and urban areas were taking the economic brunt of those missing employees who no longer shopped and ate in their establishments as part of their daily routine. A year later, as we are fully enmeshed in the recovery phase of the COVID pandemic, most are breathing a collective sigh of relief as we realize that it could have been a whole lot worse.

Left: The CODE building is scheduled to open on Labor Day Below: The Downtown Grille closed after 21 years

Not the Worst Possible Scenario With the caveat that the burden has not been spread evenly and people lost their lives, their businesses and their livelihoods, the worst-case scenario did not play out. “The economic fallout from the COVID pandemic is not as bad as we expected,” said Jenny Stoner, Senior Associate with Cushman & Wakefield | Thalhimer. “I think a lot of people, including many experts, are pleasantly surprised at where we are in our economic comeback. In part, that’s because we did not fall as far as we could have.” On Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall, empty store fronts are rare. When they began popping up during the pandemic, it broadcast that all was not well. Similar vacancies and turnover at UVA’s shopping district, The Corner, spread the same

Supporting the Expansion Tangential factors supporting this economic bounce back include the expansion of broadband and potential open container regulations. Areas without access to broadband internet service can hardly be considered viable commercial real estate. Broadband is critical to allowing homes, businesses, and educational institutions to function. A recent partnership to support highspeed internet to underserved areas of Albemarle, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, and other rural counties will likely support even greater economic expansion. Firefly Fiber Broadband has already committed to providing universal service in Nelson County. Another potential strategy under consideration to increase economic vibrancy months. Besides the office workers that will become customers for local restaurants and services, Apex Plaza shines a bright light on Charlottesville as home of the largest mass timber building east of the Mississippi. Stoner says, “Apex is putting Charlottesville on the map as a beacon of sustainability. In addition to the building and workers in it, this will generate residual economic benefits to this area for years to come.” In the manufacturing sector, Stewart Tool chose Fluvanna County for its east coast operations and will invest more than $9 million and create 22 jobs in Fluvanna County. Besides breathing life into the vacant factory on Edgecomb Road in Zion Crossroads, the plant creates 22 new jobs in the area. And the impact doesn’t end there. Bryan Rothamel, Economic Development Coordinator for Fluvanna County reports, “A property across the street from Stewart Tool Company was approved for a rezoning to I-1. The prospective property owner intends to build an industrial warehouse of 100,000 – 200,000 square feet.” The hospitality sector is experiencing a shift in the market, while expanding overall. The hotel industry has remained down more than 10 percent since the pandemic hit. Meanwhile, the short-term rental market is exploding with a more than 200 percent increase in demand. Nelson County’s newly modernized and reconfigured Rockfish Ranch takes advantage of that trend. The partnership with StayCharlottesville brings a wealth of experience to tourists and visitors that want to enjoy a luxurious getaway in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The private 600 acres of experience will eventually feature its own vineyards and tasting room and modern cabins, as well as an indoor/ outdoor event venue. Restaurateurs, too, are responding to the public clamor to get out and eat after 18 months of restrictions. Donna Waugh-Robinson, REALTOR® with Jack Samuels Realty has seen this firsthand in Orange County. “In the past three months there have been four quick transactions that involved upgrades or conversions into hospitality and res-

taurant businesses. One of them was only on the market for two days, which was remarkable because commercial real estate typically involves a much longer transaction period.” Waynesboro’s investments in infrastructure are paying off now with new restaurants in the Town Center and Phase 1 of the Ladd Elementary School project underway. The six standalone parcels will include restaurants, a gas station, and dental franchise to open next year. In Madison County, 29TastingZ opened last month on Route 29 in Rochelle. Offering sharing platters and a wine station, customers purchase a card and try a taste, half glass, or full glass of local and international wines and draft beers.

All Except Retail The retail industry is lagging the rest of the players in the commercial real estate industry. And may never catch up. Stoner says, “Retail will never go back to the way it was before.” The pandemic only accelerated the trend towards online and away from instore purchasing for many retail goods. As if to add an exclamation point, Amazon will open two “last-mile” delivery facilities in the area. One will be in the Ferncliff Business Park in Louisa County and the other in Waynesboro. These facilities transport goods from a distribution hub to the final delivery destination. The Waynesboro site is in the old K-mart on Lew Dewitt and Main. Gregory Hitchin, Waynesboro Director of Economic Development and Tourism, expects more than 100 people to be employed driving and handling freight. Both Louisa County and Waynesboro facilities should be operational in time for the Christmas shopping season. Another sign of the slow death of the traditional retail industry is the continued demise of Albemarle County’s Fashion Square Mall. The owner’s bankruptcy

AVAILABLE FOR SUB-LEASE Downtown Mall 316 E Main St, Charlottesville

Economic Engines Whether offices full of hungry and thirsty workers or apartments filled with individuals and families, businesses can only thrive if they have easy access to customers. That’s one reason mixed-use developments are the core of today’s urban design. Dairy Market is one of Charlottesville’s newest mixed-use developments. The residential portion of the development is not yet complete. Jodi Mills, Director of Marketing and Public Relations with Stony Point Development Group, says, “10th & Dairy is trailing a tad behind schedule due to supply chain issues. However, it should be ready for first rental move-ins in November.” The addition of 180 one- and two-bedroom apartments will support the office space, restaurants, and retail space already open in this historic rehab project. Holt says most of Scottsville’s downtown is mixed use with storefronts at the street level and residential units above. “Having people that live downtown has always helped these businesses stay viable, even through the pandemic. “As we continue to work through the best use for the old tire factory, we know that residential will be a critical part of the solution.” City Council recently approved a rezoning to Village Residential for the 19-acre parcel adjacent to the

in the restaurant and entertainment industries is modified “open carry” for adult beverages. Charlottesville is exploring this to jumpstart its businesses on the Downtown Mall. Legislation effective July 1 allows localities to create Designated Outdoor Refreshment Areas (DORAs). Adults would be able to purchase a 16ounce cup from a business that sells alcohol and take it into the Downtown Mall.

tire factory. “People want to move to Scottsville, but we need more housing. And we need more people to support the businesses that are here and the ones that want to move here. Our water use is only at 30 percent of our capacity and our underground fiber optics are underutilized. Scottsville is a great small town that is business ready.” “Commercial real estate is not experiencing quite the same escalation that single family homes are under-going,” says Waugh-Robinson. “But there has been a definite uptick in the past several months that I expect to accelerate. In Orange County we have commercial land on the U.S. Route 15 corridor that has been available for some time. Now interest is picking up. “In our downtown areas, businesses are selling, and new ones are moving in. What’s interesting is to see people moving to Orange County from other areas of the country to start businesses here.” The same thing is happening throughout the region. Stoner says, “Companies would like to get started here but the market has been so tight they haven’t been able to. This turnover due to the new office buildings and the vacancies on the Downtown Mall and elsewhere are opening things up. The Southern Environmental Law Center’s pending move to Apex Plaza next year is one example. They have been trying to consolidate for 15 years and now they can. And the space they leave behind makes room for another business to move in.” It’s been a year like no other and, just like in the residential market, commercial real estate is reacting favorably to this optimistic outlook. Carla Huckabee writes about high performing real estate.
