    Interesting - I suspect they are looking at the two markets as combined, and that the location of the franchise would be either in Richmond or HR but serving both markets?

    Richmond today is such a different place from 90s Richmond. The 6th Street marketplace comments are more of a statement on the people making them than the proposal at hand.

    What is OBE?

    Hyatt Place along the canal - this would have to be one of their higher end brands, hopefully a Hyatt Regency which seems like it could be based upon the typical format.

Including the towers in the TIf was a suggestion to secure more favorable bond terms and to speed up repayment. It is not prerequisite to making the deal work. Would we all agree that so long as this deal is at least revenue neutral for the city it would be a good deal?

    They are paying this amount regardless. I don’t understand how it is a break.

    Is Dominion looking for a tax break? I was under the impression the project would require a tax incremental financing district to offset the costs for the public facilities like the arena, and Dominion would be willing to place its new towers, several blocks away, into the district to help fund it. They may actually be suggesting they would pay a higher real estate tax rate. Looking forward to the details.

    Elegantly stated, Brent.

    Over 30,000 riders for the first 4 days! More than double the projection. It will probably taper when the costs kick in and still kinks to sort out, but seems like an early success story!

    Pulse Ridership projection was 3500 riders per day. The estimate for Monday was 8700.

    Building a new ball park on the boulevard has nothing to do with NIMBYs. Just the city sitting on some of the most valuable real estate in the region.
