U.Va.’s Darden School to open new facilities in Rosslyn
The University of Virginia Darden School of Business plans to open new facilities in the Washington, D.C., area.
The school will be housed on the top two floors of a 31-story building at 1100 Wilson Boulevard in Arlington’s Rosslyn area. Darden currently offers its executive (EMBA) and executive education programs in the D.C. area.
The new facilities will include tiered classrooms, offices and event spaces.
Darden will occupy the 30th and 31st floors of the building, operated by Monday Properties. It is the same building in which Darden currently has an office and several Darden staff members work in the areas of admissions, executive education and alumni career services.
The new 40,000-square-foot space, which will open in spring 2018, was made possible by a $5 million gift from Sands Capital Management Founder and Chairman Franks Sands Sr. and CEO and Chief Investment Officer Frank Sands Jr. Both are Darden graduates.
The 31st floor will be named the Sands Family Grounds in their honor.
