ROANOKE, Va. – The Liberty Trust Building in downtown Roanoke is about to get a facelift. 

Located on Jefferson Street, the building was recently sold to JS Project LLC of Fairfax, which has plans to restore the historic building and turn it into a boutique hotel, according to officials with Poe & Cronk Real Estate Group. 

The building was registered as a Virginia Historic Landmark in 1982 and became a part of downtown Roanoke in 1908.
