Design for New Downtown Apartment Building Shown
This is a rendering of the planned Jefferson Apartments in downtown Roanoke, which will be constructed beginning this spring across from the Virginia Tech Carilion Medical School & Research Institute on the Jefferson site. They will have 156 units and will substantially expand downtown living in Roanoke.
The architect is Lyall Design of Norfolk and the developer is Roanoke River Investments. This presentation was for Carilion. This is part of the grand plan for the south end of Roanoke by Roanoke River Investments, the brainchild of former Roanoke City Manager Bern Ewert, lawyer Bill Rakes of Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore and Randy Lyall of Lyall Design. Carilion is playing a major role, as well.
