Legacy on Main

CHP is leading the development of Legacy on Main in Blacksburg, Virginia.


Located at the corner of Country Club Drive and South Main Street, CHP’s Legacy on Main will offer much-needed affordable rental options near jobs, public transportation, and a grocery store in Blacksburg, Virginia. The 56-unit apartment buliding will be an ideal home for public school teachers, police officers, daycare workers, and many Virginia Tech employees who qualify.

The building, which is three stories off Country Club and tapers from three to four stories on Main Street, will feature two picnic areas, an outdoor plaza, a playground, and a community room. Legacy on Main will have professional, on-site management and resident services. The development includes a reconfigured curb and a widened sidewalk for pedestrian safety on Country Club Drive, as well as robust perimeter landscaping to mitigate light and sound pollution.

To qualify, residents may earn up to 80% of Blacksburg’s Area Median Income (AMI). For a family of four in Blacksburg, 80% AMI in 2021 was $63,000 a year. Full-time students, on their own, do not qualify to live at Legacy on Main based on Low Income Housing Tax Credit (LITHC) compliance regulations.

Developer: CHP Real Estate Development
Architect: Arnold Design Studio
Size: 56 apartments (two- and three-bedroom units)
Funding: Low Income Housing Tax Credits, REACH Virginia, Virginia Housing Trust Fund, Virginia HOME, National Housing Trust Fund, New River Valley Housing Trust Fund, Town of Blacksburg, HIEE, NeighborWorks America, and Congressionally Directed Spending

Public Notice

Community Housing Partners (CHP) is proposing the development of an affordable and supportive housing community called Legacy on Main located at 100 Country Club Drive SE in the Town of Blacksburg, Virginia. The project proposes the demolition of the existing, vacant house at 100 Country Club Drive SE. This house was the former residence of Clarice Slusher Pritchard, Virginia Tech’s first female registrar, and due to this association, the building was determined potentially eligible for the National Register of Historic Places. As such, the Virginia Department of Historic Resources (DHR) has determined that the project will have an adverse effect and asked that the Town of Blacksburg and Community Housing Partners determine ways to mitigate loss of this building and seek the opinion of consulting parties as defined by Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act. The consulting party meeting was held on July 1, 2024.

Community Housing Partners will be discussing the proposed mitigation measures at an upcoming Blacksburg Historic or Design Review Board (HDRB) meeting to be held on August 12th, 2024 at 4:30 PM in the Blacksburg Motor Company building at 400 South Main Street. The meeting will include time for public comment. If you would like to comment on the proposed mitigation measures, please attend the August 12th meeting or respond to: and by August 12th.
