  1. Thanks for sharing. Looks very ambitious. Not to pick at a fresh wound, but this vision seems exponentially more transformative for RVA than Navy Hill. Sadly, it doesn't seem like the city is capable of bringing this to fruition. I hope I'm wrong.
  2. I like this idea. More space, better infrastructure and less problematic in terms of having "dead" blocks here when events aren't taking place as opposed to downtown.
  3. Any guesses on which season the team would join league play?
  4. Between this and the LU3 crane going up, will we be at peak construction crane count in CLT history?

    Richmond Sports

    My uneducated guess is that the Flying Squirrels will land on their feet as long as a new stadium happens. The market here is just too big for MLB to let it go. Seems a near certainty though that we will get contracted by another MLB team that is a better geographical fit than the Giants.
  6. What is going on this spot again?
  7. The Intercontinental as well!
  8. Looks like all the support beams are in place, they just need to attach the screening. Put this on already and light it up!
  9. Think of the big picture. Richmond has experienced incredible growth over the past decade without a legit arena, and despite the shoddy state of this part of town. We don't need this development to spur growth that is going to come organically regardless. I'm not saying we shouldn't invest in things to improve our city, but it seems so obvious that what is driving this particular project is a group of investors, power brokers and politicians who can cash in on it in various ways. Yea, it would be cool to have a new arena and retail downtown, but this is a "nice-to-have"... it's not going to make much difference either way. You know what would have a tremendous impact on this city's reputation, its citizens and those considering a move here? Improving a embarrassing school system. But there's no money to be made there, or opportunity for short-term political gain.
  10. I would think a convention hotel has potential for 500'.
  11. From the Observer. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/business/article231952298.html
  12. The name Truist just seems so gimmicky for a financial institution. Will be interesting to see what type of campaign they launch to infuse this brand with gravitas and credibility.
  13. Looks like something that belongs in Reston.
