    I ran across this article that Google is laying an undersea cable to France . Perhaps aother data center on the way? https://www.google.com/amp/s/techcrunch.com/2018/07/17/google-builds-its-own-subsea-cable-from-the-us-to-france/amp/

    Store signage is going up and merchandise is going in. Things are taking shape. Sorry for the random photo order.

    Columbus Village at Town Center

    It appears B&N will be shrinking it's store which is not surprising as most larger retailers are either shrinking or just disappearing altogether. What is more concerning is whether they've shelved plans to redevelop this area.

    Block 2 Tower

    It sounds like we’re all set for lots of construction. I am especially looking forward to redevelopment of Columbus Village. It’s such a large tract and the potential is huge.

    This first article stated the data center will create 30 jobs but the 2nd one says the company could bring 200 jobs here. This fantastic and the kind of high tech jobs that we need.

    Norfolk International Airport

    I agree. And airlines are taking note of the increased demand. Good news all around.

    Norfolk International Airport

    That's about 18k more people than last year.
  13. Rooms to Go is coming to Virginia Beach and Newport News. Newport News is under construction and the Beach store opens next year. I bought a couch from them last year and so far quite pleased. Good competition for Haynes which will be just down the street. https://pilotonline.com/business/consumer/article_cd255204-487f-11e8-81d2-7f79f28b7c73.html

    Block 2 Tower

    Here’s a link to the article which also has a nice rendering of the Hyatt.. Block 2 will be a great addition to the center. I really like how this building sits on the corner of the Boulevard and should add a lot of density and presence. https://pilotonline.com/news/government/local/article_30652c2e-44c8-11e8-8f50-336033f33e1e.html
