Northside, Blacksburg’s front door for visitors and townspeople arriving from the north, will be the fulfillment of the 2001 Comprehensive Plan vision. From the words of the Comprehensive Plan, “The town’s front door provides a sophisticated, attractive first impression for Blacksburg.”
Modeled after Virginia’s historic neighborhoods, this community has the charm of varied housing styles, colors, and sizes, with street tree and planter strips as a unifier. Architectural diversity and a vast array of floor plans make certain any homeowner can find a house that fits their needs and aesthetic wants.
Designed with the residents in mind, ample sidewalk space, pocket parks, and garage alleyways make this community pedestrian-friendly. Traffic calming techniques such as street parking, narrow streets, and pedestrian bulbs at intersections make this community a safe place to enjoy the outdoors.
