  1. I pass by the one in Chicago quite frequently, so it's nice to see brands like this beginning to take interest in the Hampton Roads area.
  2. Strolling along the boardwalk last night, it was nice seeing how vibrant and comparable the resort district is looking compared to other major resort towns.
  3. Having lived in Chicago for the past 5 years, I share a similar sentiment in terms of how you can have an active community with a well planned street grid without the height in place. While in Lakeview, there were active retail streets with residential above paired with side streets of residential, and I feel like that could thrive in SPQ.
  4. It's looking to max out at about 7 stories.
  5. The hotel portion is moving closer to getting its exterior facade. The development might not be 10-15 stories like some of the early renderings, but I certainly has a presence while approaching/leaving Town Center (as well as going down 264)
  6. Add a few more towers, and Norfolk might have a decent secondary skyline to emerge.
  7. Windows are in the process of being installed throughout the complex. Any word on what hotel brand will be occupying the site?
  8. The view heading from Town Center proper is taking shape with the hotel in the foreground.
  9. The complex is really starting to fill out.
  10. This is from back in November, but the corner of Bonney and Constitution is really starting to feel like a good entrance to Town Center.
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. It actually reminds me a bit of some of the newer stuff that they're doing here in parts of Chicago. Love it!
  14. Recreation Island is separated from the parcel in question. That's further back on the property and won't be impacted.
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. Hampton Roads is really moving up from being a second tier region with developments like this!
  18. 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).
  19. Technically with the mechanical floor it topped out at 22
  20. 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.
  21. While it may not be a super tall building, it gives off an aesthetic edge that should help to elevate architecture in the area.
  22. Now if only we could get a 30+ story building on the vacant lot across from the courthouse.
  23. I found this out while working at HomeGoods in Red Mill before moving to Chicago.
