Fairmount Properties’ newest development, First & Main Blacksburg in Blacksburg, VA, brings a 132,000 sq. ft. retail center including national apparel, specialty stores, restaurants, entertainment, as well as hospitality areas. Fairmount Properties entrusted in Marous Brothers Construction as their General Contractor on this $8 million lifestyle center. The project consisted of six, 1-story retail buildings and is represented by national retail stores such as Ann Taylor Loft, Talbots, Coldwater Creek, JoS A. Bank, and many others. Phase I of the First and Main project covered approximately 26 acres on the southern end of the development site. Marous Brothers Construction was contracted to deliver the shell in each of the buildings and coordinated site prep and parking lots with the site contractor on the project. This project provided Marous Brothers Construction the opportunity to work with a new, out-of-state subcontractors, who responded very well to the tight schedule and proven teamwork and cooperation which allowed this project to be another out-of-town success.
We started to work together when Chip and Scott were out in the field hanging doors. They’ve come a long way, because they’ve done the work themselves. They’re hands-on people, giving them the control that makes them good at what they do. If you need a builder to rely on, they’re the one.
