The History of University Village

In the mid-1980’s University Village, a condominium complex for residents over 55, was conceived by a developer in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was to be unlike any residence for seniors previously built in the city. The architecture, interior design, and landscaping of this complex were to be of the highest quality, offering residents luxurious condominiums in an extraordinary 28-acre setting within walking distance of many attractions that the small historic university city of Charlottesville had to offer. Toward that end, a large spectacular hilltop site in a prime location was purchased and building began on what would become 94 condos in two 6-story phases. Phase I was completed in 1992 and Phase II in 1994.

Once the condos were sold, ownership of the whole complex was turned over to the new resident owners. The Board of Directors sets policy for the residents and oversees professional on-site management.

Today, the unique University Village complex with its magnificent grounds is a great addition to the Charlottesville skyline, welcoming those who want a convenient location from which to pursue an active lifestyle.
