Downtown Bluefield landmark keeps new job growth flourishing

By Charles Owens, Bluefield Daily Telegraph, October 9, 2007

The former six-story Appalachian Power Company on Bland Street (what a name) is seeing new life and is creating jobs for Bluefield. The recent addition of a new engineering firm with 12 employees brings the number of tenants to 12, and the number of new jobs created to 42 at the now-named Bluefield State College Research and Development Corporation building.

The building provides a base of operations for a variety of businesses and agencies, many of which did not have a previous presence in West Virginia, and acts as an incubator.

The structure welcomed its first two tenants in July 2005. The college acquired the old building a little more than three years ago, and it currently features an auditorium, conference room, classrooms, and a computer training lab available for lease. Several regional organizations also use the facilities within the building for meetings, dinners, receptions, banquets, and training events.
