  1. So in Daytona I stayed at a hotel years ago where probably 80% of the rooms had ocean views. The building was shaped like a trapezoid so that most partially faced the ocean. I figure that's a good way to go to maximize views I suppose.
  2. Delta is resuming service on Saturdays to BOS in May. https://thepointsguy-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/thepointsguy.com/news/delta-new-leisure-routes/amp/?amp_js_v=a6&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQHKAFQArABIA%3D%3D#aoh=16163458166608&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fthepointsguy.com%2Fnews%2Fdelta-new-leisure-routes%2F
  3. I can tell you that planning doesn't know about it yet. Granted the person I heard from doesn't deal with developments directly but they do see them pretty early on once it's with planning. This is very disappointing though. It's not even that the height is reduced but the design is terrible and not fitting with the urban fabric of any city.
  4. A new carrier called Boutique Air starts service November 1st from ORF to BWI. They're a private(ish) airline "for the cost of commercial" so ORF's facebook page states. Edit- initially posted the wrong date for when service starts
  5. So from what I've heard it's definitely being discussed with the city but nothing is official. I cannot say too much about it but it's a project that Cordish is trying to revive/keep alive.
  6. They might be bringing in the track for the go-cart track?
  7. Passenger traffic at ORF was down over 87% in May with just over 45k passengers. But future scheduled departures are set to rise both in June and even more so in July. https://www.pilotonline.com/news/transportation/vp-bz-coronavirus-norfolk-airport-may-20200612-h2lfx2zmhjh7bfq3eo35k52m2a-story.html
  8. So that rendering doesn't look terrible in fact it looks pretty good for like a mid Town or something of that nature... not so much a downtown. But, I wonder what the population of downtown is sitting around right now and with this project.
  9. Hopefully these show other developers that they need to up their designs.
  10. Retail and 2 more floors would be great.
  11. https://www.pilotonline.com/news/vp-nw-norwegian-cruise-ships-20200504-uluoakfomjczziyteuks2nu64y-story.html Not exactly for them to be worked on but, great pics!
  12. So I've heard from a friend that has contact with multiple people in companies that the city is in talks with a large company to buy military with eyes of turning the hotel into offices. He also mentioned that Amazon has been eyeing more space in and around HR.
  13. Passenger count for February was up 9.1% with just over 260k passengers. But I'm sure March is going to be way down given the pandemic. February-2020-Media-Release.pdf
  14. You would pay taxes for both but the total taxes would end up being about the same as now. This would be due to services currently handled at the city level would be handled at the county level.
