Welcome to Belvedere, a new walkable neighborhood just 2.5 miles from downtown Charlottesville, VA.  Located off Rio Road East (see Map in Info), the community is a mix of EarthCraft-inspired single family homes, townhomes, apartments, and a small commercial center.
The Center at Belvedere opened in 2020. SOCA, the area soccer organization, is currently under construction and is building a fieldhouse and administrative offices.
This community website is for Belvedere homeowners and their renters only. The HOA has a separate portal. Links to websites for The Reserve apartments and the developer are under Other Belvedere Links.
