An aerial image, site plan, floor plans, environmentals and property photos of the property are attached.
2800 Washington Avenue is located at a key intersection in Downtown Newport News at 28th Street and Washington Avenue. The property was originally built as two buildings, Montgomery Ward in 1937 and W.T. Grant Co. in 1949. From 1949 to 1994 the property was owned and occupied by Virginia Specialty Stores.
In 1994, the property was acquired by the EDA.. After renovation of the property, the EDA leased the property to Newport News Shipbuilding (NNS) where the property supported NNS office functions through June 30, 2022.
With the expiration of the lease with NNS, the EDA is interested in soliciting private-sector interest for the reutilization of this property in Downtown Newport News, in alignment with the Downtown Reimagined Plan and to complement and enhance the recent public and private investment Downtown.
The EDA also owns and manages the adjacent parking garage at 2900 Washington Avenue. While this property is not contemplated in this RFP, Offerors may propose terms for negotiation for utilization of parking within the garage to support utilization of 2800 Washington Avenue.
