Reimagining the Suburban Strip – A Case Study of Route 29 North in Albemarle County
Sixty years ago, Route 29 North was a rural highway connecting farms to “the city” (Charlottesville). Today, it is the urban heart of Albemarle County, home to its largest commercial corridor. The current built environment, primarily suburban retail strip development, is aging. New roadway improvements, including the grade-separated intersection at Rio Road and the development of a new parallel road network, and new private development in the pipeline, including retail, hospitality, and housing, lay the groundwork for a transformation of this area. Participants will explore themes of placemaking, economic development, and connectivity through this interactive session.
