Group to Meet at Charlottesville Omni Hotel
212 Ridge McIntire Road, Charlottesville, Virginia 22903, Phone: 434-971-5500
Join fellow conference attendees and VEDA members for a guided walking tour featuring several exciting additions to the city landscape. First stop is a behind the scenes tour of the City Campus project - a former Coca-Cola bottling facility that is being transformed into a biotechnology incubator.
Next up is a visit to the Jefferson School City Center which opened as intergenerational community center in January of 2013. This restored city landmark provides attendees with a real example of the type of creative public private partnerships that are needed to bring challenging projects to life.
And finally a visit to the Main Street Market, a unique collection of Charlottesville’s finest local food stores, and the midtown area which is home to some of the city’s most up and coming restaurants.
Tour leaves from the Omni lobby at 2:30 and returns by 4:30 pm. Total walking distance for the tour is approximately one mile.
There is no cost for this walking tour, but registration is required. The tour can accommodate a maximum of 30 people.
