Brass Inc.' was a company that sought a rezoning in 1998 of 54 acres northeast of the interchange of Interstate 64 and Fifth Street Extended. The plans were for a big-box retail store. They were represented by attorney Steve Blaine.
At the time, chair C. Jared Lowenstein said the area was "one of, if not the, most important growth area left."
In 1999, the plans were moving forward. Cox appeared at another hearing to tell county officials that the city might not approve the Meadowcreek Parkway if the rezoning went through but other Councilors disagreed.  Charlottesville City Councilor Maurice Cox told the Albemarle County Planning Commission that the city might not approve the Meadowcreek Parkway if the rezoning were approved.
The project eventually became Fifth Street Station.
