  1. Nice! Finally! Rendering shows 13, print says 14, spokesman says 15.
  2. Nice. Only if they had direct flights to Europe. I could use one this summer.
  3. I just passed that intersection yesterday. They have a rendering posted on that block of the building show in the above post from April 1 2019. 6 stories, typical modern, resembles the Encore type architecture. Not the 15 story building originally shown for that corner.
  4. I think you are missing the point the the outdoors there- the forest, the marsh, Owls Creek- is part of the museum and learning about marine life itself. The second (new) building is called the Owls Creek Pavilion. Everything in there is to teach you about life around the creek. (Don’t know if it’s gonna stay that was after the renovation) Everything in the main building (originally) teaches you about marine life starting from the rivers in the mountains (that literally is the first exhibit) past the fall line, in the Chesapeake bay, and out into the Norfolk Canyon in the Atlantic Ocean. When they added the Restless Planet exhibit, that detour the path of the main story, but it’s still there. The Restless Planet teaches you about Virginia’s prehistoric history (sounds weird) by connecting it to modern regions of the world that are in the same phases of existence that Virginia once was. The museum has these big stories to tell that might be hidden in the causal patron.
  5. I’m glad, it’ll give Elliot’s Fairgrounds a boost. I frequented them when I was at ODU in the early ‘00. I’m glad there still there!
  6. Maybe it had to do with not as many people flying out of Norfolk this month.

    If the NC area is called the Triangle, why not call this area, “The Heptagon”!
  8. What is the 15 story building you were referring to? I don’t remember hearing anything about that except for a possibility of that height in Midtown 2 and whatever the Hampton Inn might be.
  9. So, there is going to be a Latitude and a Datitude at Pembroke Mall? :-) oddly enough, Latitude climbing facility is going where the old Jason’s Deli was; and you say the Datitude development is going where the current Jason’s Deli is. I call collusion. ;-)
  10. Ok. I’m sharing ‘cause I had to look this up- “New entry and Pinniped Exhibit”. That’s the group of seals, sea lions, and Walruses. It derives from Latin for “fin-foot”. Makes sense. I love the seals in front, but it would be cool to see some walruses too.
  11. Belgium is now on my radar. That would be cool.

    You mean, the orange Stihl logo would look great on a new tower in Virginia Beach. :-) They are actually building a new HQ building on their property now. It seems they like to keep their management and manufacturing facilities close.
  13. If the waterside tower is Harvey Lindsey and the Gateway Tower is Harvey Lindsey, why couldn’t they envision another 30 story instead of just 20. Was Clark Nexen really taking up 20 floors? No, ‘cause their VB tower is only 9 office floors total. Damn damn.
  14. What may be reasons for resubmittal? Is anything going on with this being that we know Fairfield is going on Bendix?
  15. What’s being built on Sabre St. across from Walmart (Lynnhaven Mall). Is it more office space?
