Originally built in 1930, William Byrd High School was once bustling with students in Vinton, Virginia. Vacated in 2010, the school sat empty aside from surplus school equipment being stored there.
This building was beaming with historical integrity and had boundless potential, so we purchased it in 2017. With assistance from Roanoke County, the Roanoke County Economic Development Authority, the Town of Vinton, and historic tax credits, the former school has been restored into the The Billy Byrd, a lively loft community offering 83 market-rate apartments.
The Billy Byrd features modern apartment amenities with a nod to the past. Former school bleachers have been transformed into bookcases. Butterscotch and terra-cotta tiles, vintage chalkboards and original flooring blend with modern amenities and appliances to make this an amazing place to live. Now open, we invite you to visit and experience The Billy Byrd.
