Charlottesville city leaders allowed a new apartment project on West Main Street to move forward.
The Charlottesville Board of Architectural Review approved some building materials that will be used to build an apartment building at 1000 West Main Street. The building will is primarily intended for UVa students.
The building sits between Roosevelt Brown Boulevard and 10th Streets. The 101-foot tall building will house 648 bedrooms.
Council had approved the apartment building in January.
It's the third housing development on West Main, causing mixed reaction to how the buildings will change West Main Street.
The board and applicants also discussed signage and landscape plans. The board will look at and approve the landscaping within the next few days. It will approve signage as part of a final site plan package.
