222 West South Street is a house in downtown Charlottesville presently used as an office. As of October 2019, tenants include PVCC's Network2Work program[1] and clean energy nonprofit Blue Morning.[2] Former tenants include Pinnacle Construction beginning in 1994 and later C-VILLE Weekly.[3]

In 1994, William Park of Park Properties applied to add a five-unit apartment building at the rear of the property.[4] The Board of Architectural Review denied a Certificate of Appropriateness at its September 20, 1994 meeting on the basis that the proposed detached building massing in the rear was out of scale. It was later approved on October 18, 1994 on the basis that the density and parking complied with the zoning ordinance.[4]

In 2002, property owners sought a special use permit to allow up to five units in the front building, an increase to 10 total units on-site for the 220-222 W South St parcel.[5] At the time, the B-4 zone permitted residential density at 21 units an acre. After a modification to reduce the unit count to 4 units over concerns about the adequacy of the fifth basement unit, the SUP received unanimous approval at the December 2, 2002 City Council meeting.[6]

On February 20, 2007, the BAR approved landscape changes and a handicap ramp.[7] On September 15, 2009 the BAR approved a sculpture/fountain in the front yard.[8]

In 2010 the property owner, Blue Moon Fund, sought approval to locate a standalone solar array in the rear yard. After being deferred at the July 20, 2010 BAR meeting,[9] the array received approval on August 17, 2010 with conditions on vegetative screening.[10]
