The $1B Innovation Campus that ties Virginia Tech to National Landing at Potomac Yard has a new, strategic location on 15 acres just south of the Four Mile Run stream separating Alexandria City and Arlington County.

Originally targeting a more compact site in Oakville Triangle, VT and its new partner Lionstone Investments now plan to build within Potomac Yard, closer to the new Potomac Yard Metro (literally opposite) and Amazon HQ locations.

The school ended its partnership with developer Stonebridge Associates in March when the new site was made available.

The project will include academic classrooms, incubator space for new startups and research and development, offices for industry collaboration, and convening space for alumni events. The development plans call for public open space and ground-floor retail.

Among the graduate-level courses offered will be AI, cybersecurity, and quantum computing. Undergrads will rotate in and out from the school’s Blacksburg campus. Enrollment begins in 2020 and VTIC will be fully operational by 2023.

The new Metro station being developed at the south end of the property, across from the NE corner of the VT campus, will provide mass transit service. Reagan National Airport will be one Metro stop north and Amazon HQ2 Crystal City will be two stops away. With or without a SW entrance, the Metro station will also benefit surrounding neighborhoods such as Arlandria, Warwick Village, North Ridge, Arna Valley, Long Branch Creek, Hume Springs, Lynhaven, Potomac West, Potomac, Mount Jefferson, Oakville Triangle, Potomac Greens, Old Town Greens, and Del Ray. We expect these neighborhoods to get increased interest from homebuyers as the projects progress.

On June 10, 2019, Virginia Tech announced its Innovation Campus site plan.
