Located in downtown Roanoke between the historic Hotel Roanoke and the art deco Higher Education Center, Eight Jefferson Place is Roanoke’s first downtown apartment building. It combines its railroad history, amazing architectural features and modern amenities into 87 unique apartments for those who want their living space to be a reflection of their own individuality.
The original structure built in 1896, served as the Norfolk & Western Railway Company general office building and corporate headquarters. Today it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register.
This $10. Million project. It was financed using $3 Million Dollars in Historic Tax Credits, a $1 Million Dollar deferred loan from the City of Roanoke, and a $5.6 Million Dollar loan insured by HUD under the 221(d)(4) insurance program.
Eight Jefferson Place is a shining example of historic preservation with a modern twist. You’ll find nothing historic here about the amenities, each apartment provides everything you’d expect in a modern apartment.
