Gilbert Street Mixed-Use Development
As Virginia Tech looks to the future of its innovative partnership with Amazon in Northern Virginia, the Blacksburg campus is growing in parallel. This mixed-use development will bring 200,000 square feet of Class A office space to the University. Sited on the edge of campus as the transition point into downtown, the development promotes a more walkable urban district. Ground-floor retail and restaurants activate the street with outdoor seating areas that spill out of the building and onto the wide sidewalks.
The building will feature a unique rooftop venue that overlooks the campus from the sixth floor terrace area. This space will include a bar, catering kitchen, outdoor fire pits and television screens to host a variety of events ranging from weddings to tailgates.
