  1. From the Pilot today (regarding the Portsmouth Casino but will affect Norfolk's too): At a Lottery Board meeting April 21, Kevin Hall, executive director of the lottery, said he expected to open the operator license application process “in a matter of weeks.” Vetting the applications involves “in-depth financial and criminal background investigations” and could take up to a year, Hall said. Along with the license application process, the lottery board is working on regulations. Meanwhile, casino projects are in the works in Portsmouth, Norfolk, Richmond, Danville and Bris
  2. So, when does construction start?
  3. You would think the Amtrak station would have been incorporated into the garage.
  4. I wonder how the Amtrak station is incorporated in this design. We don’t get to see that side of the development.
  5. Casino renderings hopefully
  6. There is a new apartment complex planned for Northampton Blvd next to Ikea (Not the best picture). This is on the April Planning Commission agenda. Norfolk (and VB) are getting a lot of these and they all look the same.
  7. More casino news... https://richmond.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/updated-casino-sweepstakes-in-richmond-with-at-least-four-new-resort-proposals-on-the-table/article_860fcd58-81d3-59e8-b742-8043f8f7897d.html?fbclid=IwAR1rAKQ-bp9tNv2BeUazeaGqgZAHMfl6zfFDfNslVTl3RoqiY_WVlRQxT8A#tracking-source=home-breaking
  8. An interesting article... https://richmond.com/news/local/govt-and-politics/urban-one-teams-with-colonial-downs-owner-on-517-million-casino-resort-in-richmond/article_12f696b0-685c-5b7d-b8d4-d714aa7d1ba4.html?utm_campaign=snd-autopilot&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook_Richmond_Times-Dispatch&fbclid=IwAR01SE-v7k49dLsZnHFNs_xgZgwHhzS6QWIwyzlV8ASJikfN03Lvxuhigcs
  9. I understand the disappointment with the change in design for this project and reduction in height but in my opinion, it should be built. If it’s not built there then it will end up in Town Center (remember Clark Nexsen).
  10. It would have been cool if our Union Station had been saved and renovated into a hotel like Nashville did with theirs.
  11. That is the now demolished Monticello hotel. The federal building now occupies that corner.
  12. I'm not surprised. They just seemed to drag their feet on this project and now with COVID, they have an excuse to not move forward.
  13. ...and of course, the Monticello.
