Charlottesville – America’s #1 Community
The UVA Research Park is conveniently located along the north/south transportation corridor – US Route 29 – running through the Charlottesville region.
Charming for both its academic and recreational and leisure opportunities, including hiking, biking, canoeing, rappelling, golf and other athletics, as well as theater and music, Charlottesville is consistently acclaimed by publications as one of the most livable cities in the country. Outstanding health care facilities, one of the best school systems in the Commonwealth, and an unspoiled countryside ensure a high quality of life.
The research park is within 100 miles of downtown Washington, D.C., 10 miles from the University of Virginia’s Central Grounds, and less than one mile from major retail/shopping centers, numerous housing developments, the Charlottesville/Albemarle Regional Airport, and the Joint Use Intelligence Analysis Facility in Rivanna Station – home to the Defense Intelligence Agency, the National Ground Intelligence Center and the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency.
