for some reason I thought Portwalk made it clear it was in Portsmouth but that just goes to show you how much of a scatter brain I am.
to attone for my sins I google this mutha.
here is the article i read as posted on the Architects site http://www.proconinc...=...7&Index=yes

I found some info on Phase II as well.http://info.aia.org/...8d_portwalk.cfm
in the article is says phase I is complete, but looking into it phase I as defined in the article is a seperate project with the same developer. I think that means is that phase I of Phase II is actually starting now, and there will be a phase II of Phase II that I will describe a little now
Portwalk’s phase two will offer 400,000 square feet of space above grade and 600,000 square feet overall. The buildings range from three to five stories, adhering to a 60-foot height limit in that portion of the city. Each of the four buildings will have ground-floor retail, totaling 75,000 square feet of 20 shops, cafes, and restaurants, with an extended stay hotel above. Two buildings will have three stories and 170,000 square feet of office space. The four-story extended stay hotel will sit atop shops in one building. Portwalk’s center will be a one-way vehicular and pedestrian “Broadwalk” connecting buildings with brick sidewalks lined with trees and outdoor cafes.
now if you take the extended stay hotel and 24kSF of that retail out, thats the 2nd half of Phase II since the extended stay suites is all thats being built now.
so, two 3 story office buildings totaling 170,000 SF of Office, and ~ 50,000 sf commercial
