  1. It's a sad day. After 82 years, The Virginian-Pilot is selling their downtown Norfolk headquarters. https://pilotonline.com/business/real-estate/article_365a9e6e-8ef7-11e9-8087-f37fed6d9d98.html
  2. I can't wait to see this place packed in the fall.
  3. Elisha Sauers of The Pilot published a new article on the project with a lot of good information included; https://pilotonline.com/news/local/health/article_70b544a0-896c-11e9-9c00-2364f8229a61.html
  4. At the city council meeting last night, it was mentioned that Sydney Meers put in a bid to lease Suite 1 in the Selden Arcade. It's the only bid they have received so far. They continued that topic for a later date (the rent proposed in the bid did seem really low). But I'm hopeful they accept. It would be great to get him back in a kitchen full-time and even better to get him in one in downtown Norfolk.
  5. I should add that it will go to city planning on June 27th, which should hopefully put them on the docket for city council in July.
  6. This project went in front of the Architectural Review Board for their development certificate recommendation to city planning on June 10th.
  7. I snapped a few photos of the stadium when I went to pick my seats out last week. The new Ballard has the potential to be really loud and it looks like there won't be a bad seat on the sidelines.
  8. An application to city planning has been submitted to get a zoning change at 1231 Boissevain Ave in Chelsea from residential to commercial. The applicant wants to operate a wine bar and hotel on the lot. The application is at the following link; https://www.norfolk.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/5033?fileID=9859
  9. Agreed, this stadium has much more of a presence than Foreman did. And it looks much more cohesive. According to this article, the height of the westside stands is 95 feet, while the eastside is 55 feet. https://pilotonline.com/sports/college/old-dominion/football/article_d3293bae-6122-11e9-b6c7-fb3a13f97c6f.html
  10. Gourmet Burger Bistro will open a second location and their first in Norfolk at Military Circle Mall; https://pilotonline.com/life/flavor/restaurants/article_def26b54-7810-11e9-a640-83b58f0abd8b.html
  11. Norfolk awarded $30 million for the HUDs Choice Neighborhood Initiative. This grant money will go towards the redevelopment efforts in Tidewater Gardens and Norfolk's People First program. https://pilotonline.com/news/government/local/article_007e865a-75a9-11e9-8389-f751e4357970.amp.html?__twitter_impression=true
  12. They announced today that this meeting will be rescheduled to May 15th from 4 to 6.
  13. I apologize if I missed this somewhere else. But an application to the architectural review board was submitted for 611-615 35th Street to renovate the building into mixed use. This plan would take it from one story to three, with a ground floor retail/restaurant space. The full plans are at the following link; https://www.norfolk.gov/AgendaCenter/ViewFile/Item/4980?fileID=9806
  14. I understand why Military Highway makes it the best spot logistically for the rest of Hampton Roads. And I understand the desire of city council and the mayor to help jumpstart redevelopment there. But I gotta agree with Carolina Boy. They should just bulldoze Scope and build there. It's downtown near a bunch of hotels, convenient to light rail and it wouldn't leave us with an aging dinosaur of an arena in a prime location.
  15. LOL. That's the wrap that the Tide has had for the last month or so.
