    “Within five years, the property could emcompass 500 guest rooms, four pools and seven restaurants with 700 employees, according to Krause.”

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    This is really bad news for the city and the region as a whole. And these corporate good paying jobs are going to be difficult to replace.

    Hampton Roads Housing/Real estate/and Economy

    The Hampton Roads economy seems to be on the upswing. I hope it continues. https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/norfolk/odu-releasing-2018-state-of-the-region-report-today/1492509618

    New Bonney Road Development

    It's may be the old hotel site near Extended America or something like that. It was previously a staging area while parts of Town Center were built.

    Norfolk International Airport

    ORF is closing the airport late nights due to resurfacing. https://pilotonline.com/inside-business/news/maritime-and-transportation/article_d1229d88-9a7f-11e8-be24-af809fd61c08.html?spMailingID=14025709&spUserID=Mjc1NDQ4MTE0MTY4S0&spJobID=1460729831&spReportId=MTQ2MDcyOTgzMQS2 The article state flights in the air during the renovation will be sent to Richmond and bussed to ORF. Wouldn’t Newport News be a lot closer?
  7. Oh, the steeple. I've only been to one Wegmans but I thought it was very nice. A friend and I ate dinner there. My first time eating dinner in a grocery store.
  8. Wegmans is going up pretty quickly now. Not really a fan but the frame for the steeple is on site.

    Columbus Village at Town Center

    Except it appears the size of the store will be diminished making way for other retail. I go in B&N periodically and their store could use a facelift. It’s pretty worn and dated. Perhaps it’ll have some freshening during this time.

    Premier Apartments Progress

    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.
