The Wasena Ice House which began servicing Roanoke in the early 1920’s will soon become “home sweet home” for many.
The Wasena Ice House which began servicing Roanoke in the early 1920’s will soon become “home sweet home” for many.

Nestled in a quiet historic Roanoke neighborhood, a long neglected building is beginning to bustle with life. Wasena’s former Ice House will soon become one of the Valley’s most interesting housing alternatives.

The River House, at 806 Wasena Avenue, is slated to debut this Summer and will house 128 luxury studios and 1 and 2 bedroom apartments that are adjacent to both the Roanoke River and the Roanoke Greenway.

Ed Walker purchased the 146,000 brick building in 2004 with a vision to transform the empty storage facility into apartments. The potential for the building was inspired by the unique location on the greenway and Roanoke River as well as Wasena Park. Tenants will have the benefits of city living while maintaining a connection to a hub of outdoor activities.
