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.

The project had its first appearance before the Albemarle County Planning Commission in early April 1998. [1]

At the time, chair C. Jared Lowenstein said the area was "one of, if not the, most important growth area left."

Charlottesville Councilor Maurice Cox asked the commission if they "really want to '29' Fifth Street."

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. [2] 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.
