Three focus areas have been chosen for this competition. All are located along the Jefferson Street Corridor. The Jefferson Street Corridor lies along a north/south axis and is anchored by the railroad tracks and Rail Walk fountain to the north and the Carilion/Roanoke Memorial Hospital to the south. These three sites have also been identified by the City of Roanoke as preferred sites for proposed redevelopment.
Some properties on these focus areas are susceptible to flooding during periods of heavy or extended rainfall, specially focus areas #2 & #3. Any proposed solution for these areas should take into account that much of the area is within the 100 year floodplain.
