The Charlottesville Community Design Center is a Charlottesville-based organization that "uses the design process as a tool to help citizens create options for making the Charlottesville region a healthier, more equitable and beautiful community." The organization's last office was located in CitySpace in the Market Street Parking Garage.

In February 2011, CCDC announced it was closing its physical office and eliminating its staff. The organization will shift to being a volunteer effort and intends "to have a positive community impact, even if it doesn’t have its own space."[1]
