The challenge of New Urbanism is that it is new. In 2013, we began a comprehensive analysis of vacant, under-utilized, and under-performing surface lots in Downtown Roanoke. This study led us to acquire a .77 acre lot at the intersection of Williamson Road and Tazewell Avenue, creating a tremendous opportunity for us to reclaim and add to our Downtown landscape. Gramercy Row seeks to compliment and extend the small lot, vertical development so characteristic of the early 20th architecture that typifies and defines Roanoke. Behind six unique and integrated facades, we built 84 loft apartment homes with rooftop courtyards and private balconies, as well 6,000 square feet of commercial offices and 47 concealed off-street parking stalls. Now fully leased and exceeding occupancy goals, we’re proud to deliver Roanoke’s first urban infill project in the last fifty years.
