Lark on Main, formerly The Uncommon, is a multistory mixed-use building at 1000 West Main Street that was completed in 2016. The complex was developed by CA Student Living of Chicago and sold to Mapletree Investments in November 2016.
The building was fully occupied in its first year of opening.  The developers chose to pay $331,450.68 into the Charlottesville Affordable Housing Fund rather than build affordable units onsite.

Material at the base is made of Cor-ten (commonly referred to as "corten", a steel material that weathers to produce naturally oxidizing finish. This material is frequently used throughout the area in structural elements like bridge girders and guardrails. The coarse-grained patina is graffiti and sticker-resistant, and any repairs or alterations to the CorTen steel structure will become invisible over time due to its natural oxidation.)
Retail space constructed on Roosevelt Brown Boulevard was vacant in the summer of 2017
