Slate Real Estate Co. is building a new shopping center this fall at 1751 N. US 377 in Roanoke.

The 10,046-square-foot location will be called Roanoke Neighborhood Shops and is expected to be delivered within four months at an estimated cost under $2 million, Slate Chief Culture Officer Kris Ramji said.
