  1. Yes. It's a done deal. https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/suffolk/amazon-confirms-purchase-of-land-in-suffolk/
  2. Crowne Plaza is getting a $14 million dollar makeover. It seems quite a few hotels have also done so recently. The beauty of competition. https://www.pilotonline.com/inside-business/vp-ib-crowne-plaza-1216-20191206-x4u72b2nujgbla7zccwaw5jhni-story.html#nws=true
  3. Three companies are bringing 360 new jobs to the Beach. https://www.pilotonline.com/inside-business/vp-ib-investment-grants-1216-20191206-r5d5sgit2japhfaj7jgrdrajb4-story.html#nws=true
  4. I’m glad to see this being built. And if this goes well perhaps out hometown boy might decide to do more...
  5. Sounds like a neat reuse of an historic property downtown. https://www.pilotonline.com/inside-business/vp-ib-peanut-crossing-1007-20191001-yoi5vyu7rjap7aoyevmr4yceyq-story.html
  6. Earlier today I took the exit for VB (264 East ) and took the new fly over. It was so nice not to have a million cars backed up for the exit. Even now, at 5pm on a Friday, Google maps shows no backups. Amazing!
  7. Raleigh is a league of it's own with its well known RTP and large tech presence. Some have called it Silicone Valley East. Having realized this, the small minded attitudes in Hampton Roads will get this region nowhere and unfortunately it doesn't seem to change.
  8. Raleigh has lots of towers on the way. Sigh. https://www.wraltechwire.com/2019/08/09/developers-plan-30-story-office-tower-on-fayetteville-street-in-raleigh/
  9. Fairfield Inns that I’ve seen are pretty suburban. It will be interesting to see what is proposed for this location.
  10. Is official. Dick's at Town Center will be closing by January 31st. This is an excellent opportunity for Armada Hoffer. https://pilotonline.com/business/consumer/article_54a9ae64-b48b-11e9-9967-ff4cac0dfc07.html
  11. It's really unfortunate the military is calling the shots with this needed runway. If San Diego can operate a much busier airport with one runway hopefully we can figure something out.
  12. The Gas Light Hotel aka the Royster building has a delayed opening and the rooftop bar has been axed. https://southsidedaily.com/local-news/2019/07/22/heads-up-the-glass-light-hotels-grand-opening-will-be-delayed-heres-why/
  13. Puttshack is scouting and looking to expand it’s mini golf concept in the ViBe and Town Center areas. https://pilotonline.com/business/consumer/article_9819e07e-9104-11e9-ae68-8b3a4cf4b245.html
  14. As of yet, I’m not seeing any updated images on the website for the apartments and garages as shown on the June 2018 posting.. I’m hoping something is still in the works. http://images1.loopnet.com/d2/aEUERPoBoClOhI8DbFm5dGQKZKj6ZwrCiB73PcAg7MA/document.pdf
  15. I’ve been to Wegmans a couple of times mostly to pick up a few things. I especially appreciated all their gluten free items being all together on one isle and they have the largest selection in any store that I’ve been to. The prices seemed reasonable at least comparable to Fresh Market, at least for the items I buy . The store is smaller than the other Fairfax store I’ve been to but I’ve read the new stores going up are not as large as before. The store was busy both times and an article I read (I think an editorial on Inside Business) stated the Beach store had the 3rd largest number of people shop during it’s grand opening in the chain’s history. I’ve yet to eat at a Shake Shack but hoping to visit soon.
