    Virginia Beach Arena

    Even if the state doesnt pay anything. The city should approve it anyway. The state will just lose out on a opportunity of a lifetime and it will make the idiots in richmond feel stupid when we have the best arena in the mid atlantic and best shows. Bypassing richmond for top concerts like lady gaga and such. I think our city can pay for our own arena. Our city made close to 1.5 Billion in just tourism this past summer. we can do it on our own.

    Virginia Beach Arena

    http://hksinc.com/news/sports/press-releases.aspx Is the Architecture firm who designed this state of the art World Class Arena! For the City of Virginia Beach. Now its Virginia Beach's turn to decide to build it or not which I think they will. Mayor Sessoms is working hard to push this through! http://hksinc.com/news/sports/press-releases.aspx

    Westin Aloft and residences

    Virginia Beach City Council approved the final agreement of Phase V on Tuesday night. Construction is expected to begin in February and be completed in July 2014. The new tower will be a mix of retail, office and apartment space.When Phase V is complete. Haddad hopes to revisit Phase IV, which was approved but never built. The plans call for a 20-story office tower at the site, formerly home to The Virginian-Pilot Beacon building, as well as a separate 15-story tower with 162 Westin Aloft hotel rooms, 195 apartments and retail space at the ground level. Phase IV plans, Haddad said, will change in some form or fashion. “The market is telling us right now that’s not what you want to do,” he said. Here is the Article talking about Phase IV http://cbda.net/newsandissues/?p=390

    CityView Progress

    Yes, Cityview lost financing. They are even talking about turning the Midtown apartments into corporate housing because noone can afford the rent at Midtown at Cityview

    I do not think its possible for construction to be complete by October 5th. They still have alot of work that is not complete following the big storm that is currently in our area. The rain and wind and such will just delay the project until November at the lastest

    City Walk

    Yeah it looks like they have something up their sleeves. The Bingo Hall was demolished. So from Horace Ave East to Indepdenence is pretty much nothing but vacant land except the Town Center Market Place and the Wachovia Bank. I think something ambitious is getting ready to breakground

    Va. Beach Town Center project 2

    I rode by Town Center today. I Noticed Dr McDaniel a plastic surgeon/specialist is opening his comestic center on the corner of Market and Columbus street. Which is facing the grassy area of block 9 on the Westin block. Looks like we are getting medical offices in TC.. He can surely afford it! He has one fancy sign up for sure with plenty room to operate on his patients at this new location!.. Laser and Cosmetic Center!

    Virginia Beach Light Rail and Transit

    Yeah the lady that said ''Shame on you, All stinking of you''. What a uneducated idiot she was honestly.. She does not understand what the corridor will do for the city. I bet she is the one that voted against lightrail because she thought bringing blacks from norfolk to virginia beach would bring more crime. It should not be about race or what color you are!. This is 2010. we are in the future now. If the babyboomers are going to fuss and live in the past, let them. Don't let them ruin the opportunity for Virginia Beach for a lifetime. Lightrail is a very important project that needs to start as soon as possible. The sooner the lightrail the sooner more developers will come in and build more developments that will help the citys tax base to keep the tax burden off taxpayers.. Lightrail will decrease traffic on our streets, BRT, I think we all know what happen with BRT a couple years ago. The city council, mayor obernorf broke down on the side of the road in PUNGO.. who wants that type of transportation? Lightrail runs on tracks with electric overhead lines and continues to move smoothly. BRT would be a mistake!
