This is the first in a series of posts on some abandoned buildings in Charlottesville and surrounding areas. In my explorations I have seen and photographed many old buildings inside and out, some of which have since been torn down. A few of these buildings have been featured in other posts on this website, but I wanted to group the images here, as they collectively tell a story about time, life, and the structures we inhabit in our short stay in this world. A few are unidentified out of respect of the property owner.
This failed hotel project in the heart of Charlottesville at Second and East Main Streets is now abandoned except for animals, vegetation, homeless people, and graffiti artists. There are no firm plans to either finish the project or remove it. It is one of the tallest structures in Charlottesville.
