Virginia Tech To Build Research Center

July 28, 2008 |

Virginia Tech announced that the Virginia Tech Foundation will build a major research center in the Ballston area of Arlington, with planned occupancy by late 2010.

Virginia Tech President Charles W. Steger made the announcement, explaining that the highly visible, state-of-the-art facility would further the university's mission to expand its research portfolio in a region that offers great opportunity for partnerships with corporate research entities and close proximity to government agencies and other public and private-sector organizations.

The seven-floor, 144,000-square-foot building, designed by Cooper Carry to meet the Silver U.S. Green Building Council's LEEDBuilding Rating Systems, will be located on the 800-900 block of North Glebe Road. That portion of the building not occupied by Virginia Tech will be available for commercial lease.

The building is part of a larger JBG Companies' development project in Ballston. The interior, designed by Gensler, will include computational laboratories, offices and conference space to accommodate executive programs, training programs and workshops.
