Today’s Progress reports that the City has ended negotiations with developer Gabe Silverman over their joint development of the proposed Union Station project. Charlottesville had until early July to make use of a $3.7M federal transportation grant, and they’d hoped to use that to help provide funding for the development of the mixed-use 165,000 sq. ft. complex on West Main Street. Though Silverman and Charlottesville officials have clashed many times over this project, the final straw was a lack of agreement over parking. Silverman and his business partner, Alan Cadgene, have not yet decided how to proceed with development. In the meantime, businesses continue to open up on West Main Street (Albemarle Baking Company this week, Station a few weeks previously), still lacking adequate parking.
