    Virginia Beach off-topic

    The cost of the new “sports center” has shot up $28M. I have a feeling this one won’t be happening now. https://pilotonline.com/news/government/local/article_06537632-6f22-11e8-b428-279b73ab1135.html

    Norfolk International Airport

    Here's something with a little more meat and potatoes haha...Frontier is offering non-stop service to Vegas starting August 12. https://pilotonline.com/news/local/transportation/article_5eab3684-690b-11e8-ab02-77533c2dc8a1.html This kinda sucks for me, considering I'll be in Vegas the week before.

    River Tower

    I agree 100%. I'm happy about development, but the generic architecture kills a bit of the momentum and energy that's coming to Norfolk. The new Harvey Lindsay tower has potential to look really nice, if the developers actually try to think outside the box. I was hoping for a change in the status quo, so it's frustrating to see the good ol' boy network still hold up a lot of potential progress. Crossing my fingers that the design doesn't change drastically.

    River Tower

    Agreed. Since SPQ may be up in the air, any type of development to connect or expand development is a good thing. Take the good with the bad, I guess.

    ORF is planning for the future, and is exploring options for the terminal and runways. https://pilotonline.com/inside-business/news/maritime-and-transportation/article_f1d2b75c-65c8-11e8-a6dc-d32d6e591cf5.html

    River Tower

    (SIGH) I hope the building still looks sleek and doesn’t become short and stubby, since they’re losing 5 floors but keeping the same number of units. Also hope that the next building proposed for downtown has at least 35-40 stories, so that when changes are proposed, it will be more like 28-35.

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    A Richmond-based publication is noticing the energy that Norfolk has to offer. I'd like to see some more national articles, but I can't complain about good press... http://richmondnavigator.com/travel/you-wont-believe-the-new-norfolk/#.WxIGDhkh3zX

    Front Street Flats

    I think I remember that. Wonder if they could get an exception made like whatever they did with Waterside?

    Front Street Flats

    I think this building could use some rooftop lettering like the sign below.

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    I’m staying in the Miami area again, and I’m thinking of how they could develop the beachfront areas back home. Nothing elaborate, but a cluster of high rises, reasonably priced apartments, etc. could transform that area. Sorry, but I’m not blown away by the single family houses that start at a half-million dollars. Anyway, does anyone know if this ever took off? Or if there’s anything else about what will be happening at the Greenie’s location? https://pilotonline.com/news/government/local/article_a74dd6d7-223e-583b-b202-b44d965c5ab5.html

    A lot of that falls on leadership and the Chamber, IMO. Working together is the first step...breaking out of the status quo is the other. I’m 35, but I think my generation (let’s say 25-40) is the future. We pay taxes like Baby Boomers do, but it’s still the Good Ol Boys with money that make the decisions. And their decisions don’t vibe with what other metros our size do. Austin, Nashville, Charlotte, etc. took chances. We gotta do the same.

    St. Paul's Quadrant

    I swear every time this area takes two steps forward, it takes four steps back. Just what in the world were they thinking back then?! This is insane.

    IKEA to open in Norfolk!

    Despite Ikea's plans to scale back, the Norfolk store is still on track. https://pilotonline.com/business/consumer/article_ef49f6c0-5ed5-11e8-a339-9383801a2ff7.html

    Norfolk International Airport

    The airport is putting together a 20-year master plan, and wants public input. https://pilotonline.com/news/local/transportation/article_254c21cc-5d13-11e8-884b-b3beabe9a920.html 286,000 passengers in April 2018, up 5-1/2% from April '17. https://www.norfolkairport.com/sites/default/files/April 2018 Media Release_0.pdf
