  1. Codex has posted some photos on their construction progress in this space. It doesn’t look like much is changing from the space we all remember as Field Guide; https://www.instagram.com/p/CP3FBc1hlAK/?utm_medium=copy_link
  2. Pharrell’s non-profit is opening a private school in Ghent for low income families. The article does not say where in Ghent this will be located. https://www.pilotonline.com/news/education/vp-nw-pharrell-williams-yellowhab-school-20210607-hhyzrj6cmjg7pae4s77tqdl3ye-story.html
  3. It's a shame they couldn't get the bid in on time to host at Harbor Park, as I'm sure they would have hosted NSU and VCU, making for a fun weekend in Norfolk. However, from what I've been told, missing out on this opportunity is motivating a lot of donors and will end up being a catalyst to getting the baseball stadium the upgrades it desperately needs. They've done some good work on the stadium in recent years with rally alley, the indoor hitting center and new scoreboard. Be on the lookout over the next year or so, as the grandstand should become the next target operation for ODAF.
  4. My wife and I stayed here this weekend and VDogg nailed it when they said “it doesn’t even feel like you’re in VB”. We did the Tarnished Truth tasting, got to use the Cavalier Beach club, ate at Becca, Tulu’s and Orion’s Roof. It was a spectacular little mini-vacation. The views from Orion’s Roof are almost as good as the sushi. They really outdid themselves with this hotel. Would highly recommend it to anyone.
  5. I wasn't sure where to put this so I'm mentioning it here. On the agenda for the May 27th planning commission meeting is the adoption of the "missing middle housing" pattern book. According to the request for this amendment "The pattern book addresses the form, scale, and type of multifamily housing that is compatible in single family neighborhoods. These house-scale buildings, for both homeowners and renters, provide a broad range of housing types such as duplexes, triplexes, “Norfolk six-packs”, town homes, courtyard apartments, and cottage courts that are naturally affordable."

  6. Agreed. This problem could get much worse as the eviction moratorium expires and the unemployment benefits return to the normal rates, so delaying work on this is not an option.
  7. Buddy frees up some capital, selling the Loraine and Rockefeller for $38.9 mil. https://www.pilotonline.com/inside-business/vp-ib-apartment-sale-0419-20210416-ginswktm55ggfnponvnffy6nfa-story.html
  8. Here’s a pretty informative article on the new buildings as well as the upcoming health sciences building. In the article it notes that the health sciences building will be built to leave space between it and Hampton Boulevard for a lot to be privately developed; https://odu.edu/news/2021/4/building_our_dominio?fbclid=IwAR0K00wwFRYFEMqyXA7ndrvzbzHlGBhEgCgkWEsBEqk4bbxm4J5RmgzcrII#.YHcTvPf3YlT
  9. A virtual tour of the new Hugo Owens House; And the new Chemistry building;
  10. They did a presentation yesterday on this lot at the planning meeting. You can see it around the 2.10 mark in the video at the following link: http://norfolkcityva.iqm2.com/Citizens/SplitView.aspx?Mode=Video&MeetingID=1926&Format=Agenda Looks like phase 1 is an extension of the parking lot and walkways, the addition of food truck parking, green space and an ADA beach access. Phase 2 would be getting a restaurant with outdoor dining.
  11. On the agenda for the April 22nd city planning meeting is the following: "Initiate a General Plan Amendment to revise actions in the West Ocean View Area to support the redevelopment of the “Downtown Ocean View Waterfront Lot.” I would guess this is the lot Greenies was on and am excited to see what is being proposed. I checked the ARBs agendas and the April 19th meeting isn't posted yet but I would imagine that is where we would get our first glimpse of this project. http://norfolkcityva.iqm2.com/Citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1598&Inline=True
  12. At the following link are some updated renderings of the new Health Sciences Building that will be breaking ground this summer; https://m.facebook.com/150107171716738/posts/the-countdown-is-on-old-dominion-universitys-new-health-sciences-building-breaks/3951689028225181/
  13. This is pretty exciting. The space is pretty cool. Location is great. And Codex makes some great food.
  14. I understand the desire to add a residential aspect to waterside for cordish. It makes business sense. But my opinion isn’t based on their busines needs. It’s based on my experience seeing concerts in both spaces. The parking lot was superior. And I’ll readily admit that it’s a purely self serving viewpoint.
  15. If they built a tower, would it go on the lot where the Ferris wheel and outdoor concerts were held? This probably won’t be a popular opinion but I’d rather have the concerts as their setup was pretty great and about the only reason for me to even go to Waterside (terrible service and bad food).
