In some ways, with its blending of the arts and business,
non-profit organizations and retail, IX is a 17-acre neighborhood. You
can go from the office to the workout gym to the restaurant to the event space without ever
leaving the property.
But when you do leave, the
Historic Downtown Mall is only two blocks away. Enjoy a
show at Live Arts, The Paramount, The Jefferson or the Crown Violet Cinema.
Take a spin around the skating rink. Join friends for a little
night music in the soaring amphitheatre, or relax with your
favorite band in the intimate setting of The Southern. Afterwards,
stroll down the brick pedestrian mall and choose from one
of the many fine restaurants such as Zocalo, Petit Pois and
Bashir’s. Shops, cafes, bookstores…even City Hall
is in the neighborhood.
A short drive, and you are at Main Street Market, home of
Feast gourmet shop, an organic butcher and Gearharts chocolatier.
Just a few blocks further and you can explore the grounds
of the University of Virginia.
