SVN/Motleys is pleased to present the 25 ± acre industrial redevelopment opportunity located at 700 Shell Rd., Hampton, VA 23661. This property consists of two separate tax parcels and was formerly the site of the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind. The acre site currently consists of eight obsolete buildings that were previously used for vocational training and education and are likely to be demolished in any redevelopment effort for this site. All buildings on the adjoining site owned by the City of Hampton have already been demolished. 

The property is currently zoned R-13 by the City Of Hampton and the City of Hampton's Economic Development Department has identified industrial development as the highest and best use for this site. The property will need to be rezoned in order to pursue industrial redevelopment, in conjunction with the redevelopment plans for the adjacent site owned by the City of Hampton. This property is currently serviced by water and sewer and preliminary inspections suggest that there are no wetlands on the property.

Current access to the site is from Shell Rd. near the northern edge of the property. The City of Hampton has indicated that it would consider approving a new entrance from Aberdeen Rd. as part of an overall industrial redevelopment plan for both parcels.


The subject site is located less than 5 miles from downtown Hampton, VA at the intersection of Shell Rd. and Aberdeen Rd. The property features immediate access to the full, four-way interchange at I-664 and Aberdeen Road and is located directly across I-664 from Copeland Industrial Park, which features national and international tenants such as Lieberr, Huntington Ingalls, Cosentino, Catalina Cylinders, Wolseley, and Alcoa Howmet. Other nearby landmarks include War Memorial Stadium (1.4 miles), Briarfield Park (1.8 miles), and Newport News Shipbuilding (2.7 miles).
