What is the building’s purpose?
The Patrick Henry is a mixed use building, with both residential and commercial components. There is a variety of floor plan options for apartment living, and commercial opportunities range from upscale restaurant and retail, to Class A professional office space. Some of the common spaces that long-time Roanokers remember, such as the Ballroom, have been restored to their original grandeur and are made available for public use. Other than the Governor’s Suite that can be rented daily, there are no longer any hotel rooms in the building.
What about parking?
In addition to existing street parking, there is daily and monthly parking available in the Patrick Henry Parking Lot and Garage directly next door.
Are there residential units for sale?
Historic tax credit specifications preclude that no residences can be available for purchase. In this economic climate, those tax credits are necessary to make the project viable. Besides, for reasons we’ve already stated, we believe that an apartment building is beneficial for the kind of vibrant new energy that is currently boosting the downtown area.
Are there be opportunities to hold special events at The Patrick Henry?
Absolutely! The Patrick Henry’s heritage is told through stories of weddings, anniversaries, club and business lunches, and many other special occasions. Great pride has been taken in making spaces available for these traditions to continue. The South Lobby as well as The Ballroom are available for special events. Contact the Ballroom Manager, Seth Davis, for any questions at 540-525-9062.
