Charlottesville City Council approved a special use permit on July 5, 2017 for the Great Eastern Management Company to build a large apartment at 1011 East Jefferson Street. [1] The site is currently home to a doctor's office. [2]

The property is located within the city's B-1 zoning district, which allows for many different kinds of uses. A special-use permit is required for the residential density requested by GEMC. Many nearby residents protested this increase. [3]
