  1. Looks like this will finally open in December. https://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/orfav-glass-light-hotel-and-gallery-autograph-collection/
  2. It looks like they are building a new hotel at the northwest corner of Military Highway and Princess Anne. Nothing major, just a typical 4-story airport hotel but does anyone have any info on this or which chain it will be?
  3. There is a section in Toronto called the Distillery District that is similar that I wish this developer would take a good look at: https://www.thedistillerydistrict.com
  4. An interesting article from WAVY today which basically states all of our frustrations on all of these new cookie cutter apartments that are being plopped down with no imagination: Review board members say initial building plans for new public housing look more ‘Virginia Beach’ than ‘Norfolk’
  5. I'm not arguing that a new arena wouldn't be more ideal, but this is Hampton Roads. And Seattle's arena is $900M because it will be a first-class NHL arena. Scope doesn't need that.
  6. Expanding Scope by digging down deeper was discussed in the past. It could work while keeping the roof structure. They are currently doing this in Seattle. Seattle NHL expansion team arena on schedule to open in summer 2021
  7. Anyone know what they're making room for? https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2702960926395098&id=231958656828683
  8. Huge expansion ideas including an almost 100 page Pdf: https://www.wavy.com/news/local-news/norfolk/shorter-walking-distances-a-top-request-as-planning-for-norfolks-airport-revamp-continues/
  9. You can avoid paywalls by opening the links in incognito windows.
  10. That is new here. I like it but hope there is a good amount of storefronts on the ground floor. Either way, hope this gets going soon.
  11. NORFOLK, Va. – June 25, 2019 – Colliers International’s Norfolk office is pleased to announce the sale of the 4.19-acre parcel at 533 Front Street in Norfolk from Moon Engineering Co. Inc. to The Breeden Company, Inc. for $3.3 million. Breeden Construction will build the 258 unit, five-story multifamily development with an internal parking garage consisting of 387 dedicated spaces. Breeden Property Management will manage the mixture of studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom residences with stunning views of the Fort Norfolk waterfront with a pedestrian walkway along the Elizabeth River that enhances the boundary of the property along with renovations to the shoreline. The prime waterfront parcel sits along the Elizabeth River. Once described as the last frontier in Norfolk, the Fort Norfolk area has potential to become a vibrant part of the city and a prominent addition to its waterfront offerings. The master plan shows a mixed-use waterfront neighborhood, rich in character, containing diverse housing and employment options along with supporting uses. The neighborhood is adjacent to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, EVMS, Harbor’s Edge, Children’s Hospital of the Kings Daughters, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the Elizabeth River Trail and other residential offerings. The master plan also shows improvements to the environment around the historic Fort Norfolk, for which the district is named, including a waterfront park, promenade and anchorage for boats and ships. Streets and walkways will lead to the waterfront, which will remain public and accessible to all. “This is an ideal development site,” said Ken Benassi, SIOR, senior vice president with Colliers International. “Zoning changes brought some challenges in marketing the parcel, but this announcement will set the pace for the future of this neighborhood.” Benassi also highlights the site's proximity to employers, downtown Norfolk and the accessibility of public transportation. A park-and-ride for The Tide was built nearby in 2012. “The complex design structure of the project and the growth potential of the area sparked our interest,” said Timothy A. Faulkner, chief operating officer of The Breeden Company. “We look forward to developing this project in the City of Norfolk and providing an exceptional product to potential residents.” Moon Engineering Co. Inc. was founded in 1920. William Thomas Sr. moved the company from Norfolk to Portsmouth in 1987. Thomas passed away in 1992, and his sons sold the company to Earl Industries in 2004. Since the late 1980s, the site was leased to Great Lakes Dredge & Dock until it became vacant for the last several years. About Colliers International Group Inc.

  12. I'm really bad with this photoshop copy and paste stuff, but here is what a hotel could look like at Ft. Norfolk:
  13. I always thought a hotel should be built somewhere in Ft. Norfolk. Basically any hospital I have seen has a hotel very close by. Norfolk Sentara does not.
  14. Passenger traffic increases are great. Along with these numbers, and the plans that I saw somewhere for a new terminal to be built where long-term parking currently sits, I do think ORF will expand soon. The talk of international flights makes it obvious that the new terminal will be for the international flights.
  15. Do you consider Military Circle close? I think everyone knows, even in city council, that the mall location is the best location for a new arena. It would be huge for that area and this gives the city a great chance to expand light rail north, even if initially it 'ends' at the arena but is open to build north after the arena is open. An arena in Military Circle will not affect building progress in downtown.
