The I Love CVille Show headlines (Wednesday, March 10)
1. The CDC says if you are fully vaccinated you do not need to wear a mask while hanging out with other vaccinated people in doors. How will CVille businesses respond to this news? Will CVille businesses insist on “proof of vaccination” before entering?
2. UVA Board of Visitors Building and Grounds Committee approved the schematic designs for the state-of-the-art, 223,000-square-foot hotel and conference center sited along the southwest corner of the existing Emmet/Ivy parking garage, defining the northern edge of the Ivy Road corridor. The hotel and conference center, adjacent to future academic and arts facilities, will facilitate University events and gatherings, as well as being open to the public.
The 215-room hotel also will offer approximately 26,000 square feet of conference center space and provide the University convenient, centrally located accommodations for visiting scholars and lecturers, prospective faculty members and students, returning alumni and career recruiters, and many other visitors.
A 10,000-square-foot ballroom will be the largest meeting space in Charlottesville and should increase conference opportunities as well as employment opportunities for local residents. The hotel will feature a restaurant, café, a grab-and-go and a visitors’ center among its amenities, along with four floors of guest rooms.
3. UVA canceled graduation last year. This year, UVA hoped to honor the 2020 and 2021 graduates by hosting two graduations. Courtney Cacatian, executive director of the Charlottesville Albemarle Convention & Visitors Bureau, estimates conservatively that the local economic impact this May for two canceled graduations “is at least $5 million.”
A typical graduation weekend accounts for about $2 million in hotel room revenues, with 40,000 guests staying for at least two nights, filling all of the city’s 3,768 rooms. The $5 million figure comprises premium lodging rates plus lost revenues at restaurants, shops, wineries, and other tourist sites. “This lost revenue will make recovery that much more difficult,” Cacatian says.
4. Starr Hill Neighborhood vision plan via New Hill Development Corporation.
