  1. Drove by this property the other day and it looked like demo was finally started.
  2. The ARB agenda has been updated for February and includes signage approval for this project. http://norfolkcityva.iqm2.com/citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1230&Inline=True In addition, the city council agenda includes the following ordinance to sell parcels from the city to the developer for this project.
  3. If they were really concerned about ridership, the next phase needed to go up Granby and over to ODU. But this isn't about ridership. This is all about TOD on Military Highway. One thing I wonder, if they had the foresight to know VB wouldn't expand it, would they have started with a totally different route? For instance, they could have picked a route that would have made it easier to build short spurs off of.
  4. If you go to the project website, you will see the below map that shows the potential transit corridors highlighted in an orangish color.
  5. Don't most of these reporters work remotely at this point? And if not, why not? They only really need an office for their sales team and printing.
  6. The renderings show they're going to have parking on portions of the ground floor. So that limits the amount of commercial use of the property.
  7. We have a new mixed used development at 400 Waterside Drive that is entering the discussion phase with the ARB called Gravity 400. If built, it would replace the parking lot and the garage entrance that is adjacent to the Icon. You can see more about it at the following link; http://norfolkcityva.iqm2.com/citizens/FileOpen.aspx?Type=1&ID=1230&Inline=True
  8. Admittedly, I know very little about Richmond's Navy Hill project. I just know it was voted down last night. I start with that admission because I was wondering if there is any chance Dominion would be open to building that arena and tower in Norfolk or the Southside? I'm guessing the answer is no. But landing both would be a huge win for Tidewater
  9. Virginian-Pilot discusses this project. A couple of notes that are new to me, we're getting some ground floor retail on Church Street and construction will start in 2021 for completion in 2022. https://www.pilotonline.com/government/local/vp-nw-norfolk-st-paul-redevelopment-first-buildings-20200210-rxmo4epzibafdkgwskxdutcozi-story.html
  10. The casino would have to move a bit. But I think there's enough space to figure it out for both. I would just like harbor park to be surrounded by things to do before and after games. So if an arena was next to it, that would happen. I wouldn't be mad if they levelled scope and built there either, especially since there is so much more life downtown now.
  11. I realize that they they want to put this on Military Highway to help spur new development there. But if I had it my way, they would build this next to harbor park, giving us a stadium district and inspiring new development around both. If you could pick one location for an arena in Norfolk, what would it be?
  12. When you have an accounts receivable or collections department, you really don't want to put that in a building that everyone has access to. It is industry standard to keep payroll, A/R, accounting and finance separate from the clinical offices.
  13. Bruce wants to model Rudee Loop after The Wharf in DC. Having spent some time there last summer, it's definitely a worthy project to emulate. https://www.pilotonline.com/business/consumer/vp-nw-rudee-loop-0123-20200122-mu3nt2djxvgitieapetoe7fowi-story.html?outputType=amp&utm_source=kw&kwp_0=1553939&kwp_4=4660753&kwp_1=1975146&__twitter_impression=true
  14. Definitely possible. Their partner in this is CHKD, who will occupy most of the building. Renovations will occur and they'll slowly transition staff in over a few years time. They'll be able to consolidate all their professional staff to one building and open up their current space to clinical use. Also hearing that Sentara will consolidate all their offices to somewhere on Military Highway but not sure exactly where yet. They were looking downtown but that doesn't appear to be on the table any longer.
  15. If this deal goes through (and I've been told it's done), it will have the entire building occupied. One of the reasons they haven't closed yet is they want the parking garage included in the sale. So the city will have to help in that regard.
