Commercial space gets new lease on life in Northwest Roanoke

601 Inc. is home to different organizations all with a similar goal

ROANOKE, Va. – Roanoke civic leaders are celebrating the opening of a brand-new community space.

601 Inc. is a new commercial space in the Gilmer neighborhood. A number of people were on hand Thursday for a ribbon cutting ceremony officially opening the space. 

Developer and city council member John Garland renovated the historic building on 11th Street. It's home to a number of organizations, including the Humble Hive, which is a business incubator, the Advancement Foundation, and the Intercity Athletic Association.

All share a similar goal of giving back and revitalizing the community that they serve.
