    ADP just has a branch here with one execitive, some VP of something, if I'm not mistaken. This has to wake up our region just because it was in downtown Norfolk doesn't mean there aren't serious lingering affects for the rest. We as a whole need to work hard to attract more flights, carriers, and make room for the airport to get the second runway. The region needs to get it's act together and fast yes we had a great economic report this year but the reason for that it because of increased gov't spending so when that stops we're right back to where we were. The leaders have to work together and attract a large company(f500 or 1000) to HQ preferably in downtown.

    St. Paul's Quadrant

    Agreed, I definitely wanted something more out of this property it didn't even have to be 8 or 10 stories I would have been happy with 6 so long as it wasn't bland and suburban looking.

    Norfolk and honestly the region(as it would and does affect it as a whole) should put together an incentives package to get NS to stay and consolidate here. You can't really put ADP or Amerigroup and the list though as they aren't headquartered here. They have pretty big operations in HR yes but the executives and majority of the staff aren't here.

    That's great a data network is and will be essential for great cities and regions. And mayybe this will lead to increased cooperation throughout the reason?

    I think that's the city living minus all young people amenity package.

    Norfolk Light Rail and Transit

    Austin just started having a few companies with scooters come into town about 2 or 3 months ago. They are every where and not quite annoying but they are getting there.

    sports in norfolk

    I just went through the upcoming events for scope, chrysler hall, and attucks theater none of them have anything shown but it only went out to April 2019. Also if this were to happen it would be BIG news and would have made headlines. That being said maybe the heads of the CIAA are in town to see what the city/region has to offer

    It may just be site work for the 264/64 interchange I heard it's really close to it but, I may be wrong though as I haven't been home in 2 years.

    Columbus Village at Town Center

    There's a Shake shack that I've been to in the Domain in Austin, it's basically just a burger joint that's ever so slightly scaled up. It's not bad but I don't think it's all that special.

    I'm shocked that VB had more than Miami.
