Completed in March of 2012, 900 North Glebe Road is a highly visible, state-of the-art facility that is flexible to the needs of its owner and tenant, the Virginia Tech Foundation. The building also engages with the local community through public ammenities and architecture.

The seven-floor, 144,000-square-foot 900 North Glebe Road is a research and office building, including ground-floor retail space and three levels of below-grade parking. The new facility features a precast concrete skin, curtain wall, and punched windows. The top five stories accommodate the Virginia Tech Research Center’s computational laboratories and offices, the Virginia Tech Applied Research Corporation, as well as one floor of leased space. The building's main lobby showcases dolomite limestone also known as "Hokie Stone" - a material commonly used on Virginia Tech's Blacksburg campus. 

Located in Arlington, Virginia, 900 North Glebe Road includes features to enhance the local community. A highly visible, two-story clear glass podium holds the building lobby, street-level retail, an outdoor terrace and conference center for meetings, symposia, and other events available to regional science and technology communities. A 6,600 square-foot public plaza is south of the building.
