  1. The “studies “ are just another sign of timidity that affects this region. It’s why we will probably never rise even close to our full potential. /off my soapbox
  2. An article about the Tide. Va Beach missed a huge opportunity not allowing it to extend to Town Center. Oh, what could have been… https://www.pilotonline.com/news/transportation/vp-nw-tide-light-rail-10-year-20210819-v5ixg3vs4bdvjismt4das5nv2i-story.html
  3. I happened to ride through Town Center today and noticed the fountain in the square has been converted into a planter I guess you call it. Instead of water we now have plants. Too expensive to maintain I guess..
  4. Perusing their website leaves me feeling a little underwhelmed. It appears to be a smallish firm that has redeveloped apartments and some commercial sites (which aren’t listed on their website (?). I’m not seeing any mixed use properties. I really hope they plan to bring the properties together to develop as a whole.
  5. Bad news. Already, Breeze is cutting flights. https://onemileatatime.com/news/breeze-airways-schedule-change/ If we can just get beyond this pandemic perhaps they’ll have a better chance..
  6. Fifty two high end townhomes will be built at site of old bakery. https://www.pilotonline.com/business/vp-nw-townhouses-high-street-portsmouth-20210615-ap66w6et6zb5xohjzgowgnsnmq-story.html This appears to be great use of this vacant property. Plenty of vacant property around it just ripe with opportunity. https://goo.gl/maps/F2ef1jPAUgYKdFv76
  7. I rode down the strip last night and people were everywhere. It was great seeing visitors returning to the city. 7k sand soccer players are at the Oceanfront having a tournament. https://www.pilotonline.com/events/vp-nw-sand-soccer-virginia-beach-oceanfront-20210612-krmwik4uova6vbutwx3excwdfa-story.html People are flocking to our beaches. https://richmond.com/entertainment/summer-vacation-plans-in-hot-demand-at-virginia-beach-obx-vacationers-will-find-staffing-shortages/article_b952d6d2-5f8c-50ee-81b9-0d14246fbe5a.html
  8. This is amazing. From granny’s mall to urban chic
  9. This photo was kind of posted earlier but I snapped a quick one tonight at the stoplight. Looks so awesome at night.
  10. I keep waiting to see if anything is happening at this property.
  11. PointeOne will continue construction of a data center. I am assuming this is part of the undersea cable. https://news.yahoo.com/news/planned-virginia-beach-data-center-105900925.html
  12. Amtrak will add a 3rd Norfolk to DC train sometime this year. https://www.pilotonline.com/news/transportation/vp-nw-passenger-rail-hampton-roads-buttigieg-northam-20210331-zdpqhmjqzfe5rcioi3brqorc7q-story.html
  13. I walked by today. It was a beautiful day to check out construction. Lots of activity for sure. I noticed several construction workers taking the pedestrian bridge to Midtown Apartments. Perhaps they are living there while construction is ongoing.
  14. I rode by today. It’s amazing the progress they’re making.
  15. If they continue with their mixed use theme of construction maybe they should rename this mall to something different. Pembroke Place popped in my head but I'm sure there are many other names..
