Drew Holzwarth and his wife, Michelle, will be breaking ground soon on a new development in downtown Crozet. Piedmont Place will be located across Library Avenue from Crozet Library and will lead to the Barnes Lumber property. The four-story, 28,000 sq-ft structure will have a restaurant with a patio on its terrace level and Piedmont Place Market, a court of food-related businesses similar to West Main Market in Charlottesville, on the main floor. Apartments will be located on the two floors above the market, and the fourth floor will include a sky bar restaurant with panoramic views.
Drew recently presented his plans for the building to the Crozet Community Advisory Committee (CCAC). The project is currently awaiting approval from the County's Architectural Review Board, which should take place in November. Construction could start soon thereafter.
Additional details about Piedmont Place can be found in this recent Crozet Gazette article.
