201 S. Jefferson Street, Roanoke, VA

“We are incredibly appreciative of Wells Fargo for donating such a historic and prominent building to VCC, and we assure the Roanoke region that we will be good stewards of it and work to find the best use for the city’s future needs”
-Jane Henderson, CEO of Virginia Community Capital

Wells Fargo gifted its one-time branch and the former First National Exchange Bank building to Virginia Community Capital (VCC). With input from citizens and local officials, VCC plans to direct the redevelopment of the 55,000-square-foot property into a use that further strengthens the central core of the city, enhances economic development, creates jobs, and potentially expands downtown development opportunities for others. Join us to share your ideas for the building, insights on economic development needs, and other ideas for the Roanoke area.
