No matter where you are, saying you live Downtown means one thing – You’re right where the action and excitement happens. You’re connected to the heart of your town and you contribute to all that makes it pulse. The daily beat, the big events; the subtle nods to familiar faces as you walk to work, the dinner party with friends that moves to drinks at Hamiltons; the bike ride to the Farmer’s Market for local coffee & doughnuts, the summer evening concert at The Jefferson.
Located within easy walking distance to the vibrant Downtown Mall, Burnet Commons connects your home with the life of Charlottesville – the work, the food & drink, the concerts, the shows, the shopping. You name it! Leave your car at home and walk to everything! You know the saying: “Location, Location, Location.” Burnet Commons delivers location.… And more.
Imagine a community developed in partnership with eight local landowners, dozens of neighbors, long-time community fixtures, a local non-profit, the City, and a local builder. A partnership of collaboration and contribution, with the common goal of creating a neighborhood with traditional small-town values at its core and the balanced progressiveness of our historic town on the surface.
Imagine a community with such an eye towards sustainability and environmental stewardship that this new neighborhood will produce less runoff than before the site was developed. That each home will provide owners a 30-40% more efficient living experience than the typical new home built today. And with standard Solar Pre-wire and available Solar systems, an efficiency rating that can be dramatically increased, now or down the road.
Imagine a community awarded the “Outstanding Plan of Development” by the City of Charlottesville. An award that recognizes that this small corner of our town, so close to all that makes our city Charlottesville, will be special in what it offers its residents – value, a sense of good conscience, and a life in the heart of our hometown.
