Welcome to The Bridges
A multi-year, mixed-use development that includes new apartments, restaurants, offices and retail space on the site of a former mill and scrap yard. It’s the largest development of its kind in Roanoke, VA.
The 22-acre project is expanding downtown Roanoke along South Jefferson Street, complementing the Virginia Tech-Carilion School of Medicine & Research Institute and Riverside office complex currently across the street, as well as an adjacent site under the Walnut Street bridge.
The Bridges is in a historic district that's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Over the next decade, The Bridges is planned to grow to
1 million square feet of residential, retail and office space that will connect downtown with the Roanoke River to create a destination that will include a public river walk, kayak launch and riverfront dining.
The Bridges is being developed by WVS Companies, which specializes in reusing existing buildings and amenities to create new communities.
