    New Bonney Road Development

    Looking at their website, Olympia looks.... like a typical Virginia Beach Office suburban developer. You know the office park adjacent to City Walk ( the Convergence Center, office buildings right by I-264 ) Pretty much what they own/lease: https://olympiadevelopment.com/available-properties/

    Norfolk International Airport

    The new Airbus A321LR might be good for Norfolk, as it is a small (B737) sized aircraft capable of flying over the Atlantic to Europe (although barely) Norfolk could benefit from being a low cost hub alternative to the big East coast hubs like JFK/Dulles/ATL ect. https://airwaysmag.com/industry/analysis-looking-at-potential-routes-for-the-airbus-a321lr/ Edit: The probable upcoming Boeing 797 Middle-of-the-market (MOM) aircraft could also do so, as it will be capable of transatlantic flights and will be 757-sized (and I know I have flown 757s into Norfolk before)

    Virginia Beach off-topic

    Honestly, I don't think Virginia Beach has a chance for this second HQ (or any other city in Hampton Roads). However, I can see Mayor Sessoms push resulting in other benefits for Virginia Beach, as it puts the city on Amazons map as the company increases the size of its web services (cloud ect) having access to the fiber line is a real incentive! Plus, would be nice to have a thriving ecosystem of multiple businesses (co-located for the fiber and Amazon web services) than one MASSIVE company. That is how you get a silicon valley.

    Virginia Beach Arena

    I have to disagree on this one, the article seems to present an honest evaluation of an issue (traffic) without turning the article into a hit job. Also notice that the push for light rail in the article that would probably fix the problem. Living in a couple college towns I can see how big events majorly disrupt local traffic, this is a conversation we should have now to mitigate the problem and enhance the stadium and beach area.

    Hilton Norfolk at The Main

    I think the overhang is a bit too much, and the massive size of the convention center adds bulkiness, but the latter is probably necessary to make it financially feasible to attract conventions.

    And notice they dont go near enough to ODU...... Edit: Sorry only went off the one image, seems there are a multitude of options that do include ODU.
