  1. Amazon's increased presence, along with the biotech corridor, really do spell out great things for the future of HR. I figured the new HQ in NOVA would have a trickle-down effect throughout the Commonwealth, and we're starting to see a few benefits. I just hope we, as a country, can get Covid fully under control so we can move forward. So many projects that are critical to our growth seemed to be put on indefinite hold: SITW, the regional arena, Gateway Tower, SPQ, etc.

    I found this from 2006, about a year before the Great Recession. It’s a shame how many projects fell through as a result of all that.
  3. It crosses my mind, esp. when I travel or see a picture or TV show of another city. With sports coming back, I’m tempted more than ever. I’d compromise by being able to have an extended assignment elsewhere for a couple months. BUT, I see the area’s potential. We’ve made strides the last few years that are impressive. I think it could be quicker, but it’s happening, and there’s only going to be so much until Covid gets fully under control.

    I think redeveloping NEON into an extension of downtown is important, esp. if they were to build a pedestrian bridge at say, Granby and Brambleton. I know the proposed Granby Tower corner belongs to the government, but that’s really begging to become a mixed-use space, preferably a tower.

    Also...here's a shot of downtown that I took from the rooftop of Novel.

    I wish I could take credit for this picture, but I saw this on Reddit. That's MacArthur Square. It's an angle you don't see very often in downtown pictures. The only thing it needs IMO, are a few more shops.

    Norfolk Off-Topic

    I was in Novel Coworking space a couple hours ago, and it's crazy to see the changes that have happened downtown. With the new apartments like Gravity, Gateway Tower, the casino, and MacArthur's rebuilding, downtown has some great potential to seriously put this area on the map.
  8. Come to think of it, that's actually a good way to put it. My view one year was of an office park and the airport in the distance.
  9. The design is okay to me, but the hotel looks stumpy and the casino itself kinda looks like a shopping mall mixed with an airport. I kinda get Maryland Live vibes too.
  10. Wait. That was four years ago, and Norfolk decided to move on...why is he still talking about it, and why is he so obsessed with Norfolk, instead of worrying about his district?

    The article mentions us being in the Top 25 of U.S. markets. I'm guessing that list is based on number of rooms available?
  12. So we're offering South Beach prices on condos, with none of the South Beach entertainment now? I know it's location, location, location, but VB has a long way to go before they can justify charging that IMO. Meanwhile, I'll enjoy my modest house that's the same size, and about 1/6 of the price.
  13. Good point. I guess I’m going by what I saw from a couple months ago. But yeah, it’s just VB being VB in general.
  14. Virginia Beach will never reach its full potential as a resort city as long as naysayers (who I'm guessing are in the minority) keep pulling stuff like this. The ironic thing is, these people moved to Shore Drive well after the developments began.
  15. The additional glass gives it a big city look. I’d expect something like this in a place like LA. I like it!
