Originally commissioned by Theodore Roosevelt in the early 20th century, the Lorton Reformatory defied prison norms from the beginning. Natural light, fresh air, and open green space were all items that Roosevelt felt were important in rehabilitation, leading to the dormitory-style buildings being constructed in a manner akin to a college campus versus traditional cellblocks. This was one of the many factors that made the property an appealing candidate for adaptive reuse.
Located outside the District of Columbia in Fairfax County, Virginia, the historic Lorton Prison, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is undergoing extensive redevelopment through a public private partnership. The repurposed reformatory site is blossoming into a vibrant urban community that when completed will feature 165 apartments, 157 townhomes, 24 single-family homes, six condominiums and up to 100,000 square feet of office and retail space – a $190 million redevelopment known as Liberty.
Join us for a case study with project partners serving as panelists, sharing differing perspectives on historic preservation, infill development, adaptive reuse, master planning, public-private partnerships, community outreach, and more. This one-of-a-kind development required creativity and an outside-the-box approach on all levels; panelists will discuss challenges, solutions and more, followed by lunch and a tour of the master-planned campus.
