Market Value Competition

LITTLE RHINO'S DESIGN FOR THE MARKET VALUE COMPETITION
WINS PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD

Charlottesville Architect, Bob Anderson, teamed up with five University of Virginia graduate students to win the People's Choice Award in the "Market Value Competition" hosted by the Charlottesville Community Design Center (CCDC). The design competition sought innovative solutions for the redevelopment of two city blocks in downtown Charlottesville, south of the pedestrian mall. The site, which currently hosts the City Market on Saturdays throughout the spring, summer and early fall, contains two of the most underdeveloped parcels in the city.

The Little Rhino team's winning design accommodated a growing city market in a central plaza and along South Street with two mid-rise mixed-use buildings. The buildings consist of commercial space on the ground levels, one to two levels of office space, a mix of condominium apartments (ranging from luxury to affordable) and over 450 underground parking spaces. The design provided innovative strategies for harvesting solar energy and storm water management and the team's alternative to the popular "green roof" concept included a series of raised vegetable gardens on the roof tops to serve the condo residents.
