master plan
farmville, VA

  • Anticipated Completion: 2018

Taking its name from Buffalo Creek, which runs through the 53-acre property, Buffalo Shook is the former wood barrel manufacturing plant in Farmville.  Located at the crux of Longwood University and downtown, the Buffalo Shook master plan envisions a new convocation complex, hotel, student housing and structured parking.  It will also incorporate a 40-acre sports and recreational island, linked by a pedestrian bridge.  The classically-inspired layout responds to the existing downtown grid, Buffalo Creek, the adjacent rail line and student circulation.
