As part of our new Insights Blog, we’ll occasionally take a look at and celebrate the communities in which we live and work. It’s an opportunity for us to highlight the areas that we find so special and the places we choose to be a part of.

There’s no better place to start this Local Showcase series than where we first began: Blacksburg and Roanoke, two beautiful cities in Southwest Virginia. Our original corporate headquarters, located in Blacksburg, is where everything started in 1966 when Harry H. Hunt III, the founder of HHHunt, saw the need for faculty and student housing at Virginia Tech. FoxRidge, HHHunt’s very first apartment community in Blacksburg, Virginia, laid the foundation for the successful and profitable management of close to 7,000 apartment homes in Virginia, Maryland and North Carolina, positioning HHHunt as a leader in the Property Management industry in the Southeast.

Nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains, Blacksburg and Roanoke are special places for a number of reasons. The communities boast stunning scenery and natural beauty, tons of outdoor activities, great wineries, markets and boutique shops, Mill Mountain Zoo, and more. Both cities have eclectic and delicious food scenes and the Hotel Roanoke is a beautiful and historic hotel definitely worth a visit.  And, of course, we can’t forget about Virginia Tech. The world-class university serves as the heart of Blacksburg. There’s lots of Hokie pride at HHHunt!

We have a number of apartment communities in the area, including FoxRidge, which is located in Blacksburg, and Honeywood, Pebble Creek, and WestWind, all of which are conveniently situated near downtown Roanoke.

We are thankful to have so many awesome team members in Blacksburg and Roanoke and are excited to continue serving as an engaged community partner in these bustling and vibrant cities!
