Correction: NRAO's HQ not at ITT

I am always pleased to see the National Radio Astronomy Observatory mentioned in the local media, since so many people are unaware of our existence. However, I do have a minor correction to the mention in your story [May 13: "White Gables: New condos under way"].

The buildings we have in the old Institute of Textile Technology complex are actually our Technology Center housing our Central Development Lab and the ALMA Electronics Division.

The Headquarters continues to be located at 520 Edgemont Road on the UVA campus. But please note we are not a unit of the University; we only rent space from them.
