The City and Newport News Shipbuilding Announce Plans
The City of Newport News, its Economic Development Authority, Newport News Shipbuilding, and Southeast Commerce Center Associates
gathered today to announce an agreement on collaborating to construct a 95,000 square-foot office building in the Brooks Crossing development in the Southeast Community. Southeast Commerce Center Associates (a partnership of former Southeast Community native Aaron Brooks and Armada Hoffler Properties) will develop, construct and own the building. Newport News Shipbuilding plans to occupy the majority of the building, where the company intends to locate nearly 600 engineering and design jobs.
The Newport News Economic Development Authority will lease the remaining 15,000 square feet and utilize the space for several new ventures, including STEM education and entrepreneurial initiatives.
