A new 10 million meeting space is opening up in Albemarle County. Wednesday was the official ribbon cutting ceremony at the Boar's Head Pavilion. It has 9,000 square feet of space and the grand ballroom can hold 400 guests for dinner.
The University of Virginia owns and operates the pavilion, and university president John Casteen says the facility will attract a variety visitors.
"The adaptability and scale of this building are unique and that's the element of it we find exciting from the university's point of view," said UVA President John Casteen.
The facility is specifically intended for a business audience. No new parking lot was built for the pavilion but managers say 200 spots are available up the street and they can provide shuttles for events.
