Tribe Square front facade

Tribe Square is located on Richmond Road in Williamsburg, Virginia.  The Real Estate Foundation purchased or was donated the land for Tribe Square in 2008 and 2010.  Tribe Square is 3-story, mixed-use building designed by Boyton Rothschild Rowland Architects.  The first floor is dedicated to 4 restaurants including The Crust, Pita Pit, Subway Cafe and MOOYAH.  The Crust, a new restaurant concept developed by Baker's Crust, serves Neopolitan pizza, microbrews and other menu items.  The Subway Cafe leverages the chain's partnership with Seattle's Best to embrace a coffeeshop ambiance and Pita Pit offers pita-bread sandwiches, soups and salads.  MOOYAH focuses on burgers and fries.  Both The Crust and Pita Pit face Richmond Road enabling them to offer large outdoor cafes for al fresco dining on private terraces.       

The building's top two floors include 14 apartments housing 56 William & Mary students.  The housing is managed by William & Mary's Office of Residence Life.  The parking lot behind the building is accessed from Scotland Street.  A breezeway allows access to Richmond Road directly from the lot, which is reserved for retail patrons.  The one-acre site is developed in a way that maintains a sense of place that is appropriate for a location so near the College and the Historic Area.  It brings much-needed student dining options and College-operated housing close to campus.
