1003 West Main Street is a contributing structure in the West Main Street Architectural Design Control District. It is currently occupied by the University of Virginia but was formerly home to supermarkets, a furniture store, and a bakery.

In 2009, the Planning Commission approved a special use permit filed by architect William Atwood for a 45-unit, six-story building called the Sycamore, modifying one issued in 2008 for 16 "luxury-style" units, with 2 affordable at 60% area median income.[1] The Sycamore was never constructed.

In 2016, UVa purchased the property for $2.99 million.
