Charlottesville condos have sprung up in every area of Charlottesville since the crash of 2008 and are conveniently priced for every buyer from ultra-chic to ghetto-hip.

The Charlottesville historic Downtown Mall is probably the prime location these days as it’s all about getting out and walking the town. The 550, North Downtown; Eleven:30; Charlottesville Towers; and Residences at 218 are the newest while The Randolph and Gleason still shine almost 15 years later. Court Square and The Queen Charlotte are our favorite picks as they’re ideally located in the historic old town area of Charlottesville and highly sought-after.
Moving across the bridge to Belmont there’s Belmont Lofts which everyone goes crazy over as Belmont is the place to buy these days for the young artistas with cash to burn.
To the far west of the city is White Gables which is posh and expensive; lovely, peaceful Ednam, perfect for golf and tennis players in historic Birdwood; the majestic high-rise of University Village (for seniors); and Huntington Village (primarily for grad students and investors).
To the far east there’s Carriage Hill which sits on top of Pantops Mountain near the newly-built Martha Jefferson Hospital and offers spectacular views; Riverbend located in the rear of a commercial development is sited overlooking the Rivanna River; Riverside Village newly-built and practically in Darden Towe Park is where the new YMCA is and soccer is king; and finally Riverrun in lovely Pen Park. For athletes, golfers and those who love to take long walks with their dogs choose either Riverside Village or Riverrun.
Today major developers such as Ryan Homes and Stanley Martin Homes have made Charlottesville their prime area to develop in Central Virginia. And if you are looking for new, affordable condos then those are your two best choices. But never buy from the builder. Always use a realtor who can check the ‘recently solds’ and negotiate more upgrades and perks for your money!!!
One of the newest areas of the Charlottesville condo growth can be found off Avon St known as the south-east side of town and perfect for those wanting to hop on I-64 quickly. Fry’s Spring; Woodlands; Linden Lofts; and Eagles Landing (mostly student/parent owned). Further east but still close to I-64 is Druid Hill and Monticello Overlook both of which offer fine views of Monticello and Montalto.
Off Main Street just east of UVA you’ll find Walker Square and Cream Street 10, both affordable and home to mostly young professionals. Main Street has had a resurgence since UVA is constantly in need of new space and is full of tasty restaurants and great for walking to and from the University.
Leaving UVA and heading north towards the JAG School, Darden Business School and UVA Law School we have Hessian Hills which is popular and affordable and in a great location. Nearby Solomon Court; Branchlands; Turtle Creek; and Webland are old standbys and have been around longer than most other Charlottesville condo developments and perfect for first time home buyers. Perfect for bikers.
Heading north again, we hit Rio Road (the dividing line from the city to county) where there’s Glenwood Station in the shadows of our ‘dying’ Fashion Square Mall. Lovely condos but not much scenery. A car is a must.
Just off Park St north of downtown are the Villas at Southern Ridge, however, walking to the historic Downtown would take about 45 mins but ideally located next to Charlottesville High School and overlooks Pen Park (but not in it).
But wait! There’s more! There are quite a few Charlottesville condos for sale that we have not mentioned. Check our site to see what Charlottesville condos are currently for sale: https://homes.tobybeaversrealtor.com/i/charlottesville-albemarle-condos .
