    Va. Beach Town Center project 2

    This is an older plan. Several of the retailers are no longer in existence. Regarding the hotel - that is supposed to be built at the entrance of the TCC campus on Princess Anne Road across from the Wendy's/OneLife Fitness where all the trees stand.
  2. Dollar Tree is adding 600 jobs and expanding their headquarters. They said they will be building the "tallest building" in Chesapeake. Pictures in the article look to be a town center style environment within the Grennbrier area. http://pilotonline.com/business/dollar-tree-to-expand-in-chesapeake-adding-jobs-and-tallest/article_d733d431-6501-588b-8f59-9dc80e87154c.html

    1500 Monticello Ave

    It actually reminds me a bit of some of the newer stuff that they're doing here in parts of Chicago. Love it!

    IKEA to open in Norfolk!

    Recreation Island is separated from the parcel in question. That's further back on the property and won't be impacted.

    Virginia Beach Arena (Cancelled)

    New article with updates on the arena. They hope to close the deal on the loan by the end of summer and start construction before the end of the year. http://pilotonline.com/news/government/virginia-beach-city-council-will-hear-from-developers-about-m/article_bef1baa3-ad04-5442-a3c4-f32fe848404a.html
  6. A lot of your biotech research organizations are smaller firms that work with larger entities. While it may seem like a drop in the bucket, I feel as if the seeds are being planted for long term growth in the healthcare industry within Hampton Roads.

    IKEA to open in Norfolk!

    Here's a detailed video with a potential rendering of the building. There's some more information on the City of Norfolk's facebook page.

    Hampton Roads is really moving up from being a second tier region with developments like this!

    CityView

    These would typically fall in line with the definition of a mid-rise (4-12 stories). You really don't hit skyscraper status until you've surpassed 150 m (around 490 feet or higher).

    Hilton Norfolk at The Main

    Technically with the mechanical floor it topped out at 22

    Norfolk Stores and Retail and Resturants

    Since moving to Chicago, I've never seen a greater number of the same store's (i.e. Walgreen's, 7-11, etc) concentrated in patches throughout the Loop.

    Hilton Norfolk at The Main

    While it may not be a super tall building, it gives off an aesthetic edge that should help to elevate architecture in the area.

    Hilton Norfolk at The Main

    Now if only we could get a 30+ story building on the vacant lot across from the courthouse.
  14. I found this out while working at HomeGoods in Red Mill before moving to Chicago.

    15th Street Pier Redevelopment

    Bruce Thompson's working on this one, so I think this deal has a bit more teeth.
