422 East Main Street', also known as the A&N Building, is a one-story, 2,400-square-foot building built in 1920, located on Charlottesville's downtown mall[1].

It is owned and rented out by developer Gabe Silverman. For many years, the tenant was the A&N clothing store, but they moved out in 2006.[2] Following the store's closure, the space lay vacant until 2008, when it became the Charlottesville headquarters for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama. In 2010, it became a temporary art gallery. In September 2011, Restaurateur Alex George turned the space into a restaurant called the Commonwealth Restaurant & Skybar. [3]
