  1. True, however I would hope it does not turn into a sea of low rise apartments. If anything, I wonder if they could split up the mall's land and sell it individually to buyers. After that, they could somehow close off that section and cut that piece of mall away, sorta like a cake. It would be a piece of cake. And while they do that, they might as well reinstall the street grid..........only in a dream.
  2. Just all the more reasons to remove Macarthur Mall which has become a sort of hindrance in downtown development. Not to mention, it threw away our street grid too. Its been a long few decades, unfortunately they built it right before the fall of brick and mortar malls.
  3. Speaking of that, I have two more photos here for you. These ones were rejected because they were too blurry at some spots but I hope yall enjoy.
  4. I think its time Chesapeake gets its own pictures forum. Over the lest few years Chesapeake has boomed in population and development, and with the recent Summit Pointe development, its safe to say that Chesapeake has a brighter future ahead of its self along with its sister cities, Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Enjoy these pictures I took at night.
  5. REDO: I have done some photography work in the Downtown Area of Norfolk I hope you guys enjoy. We all have seen Norfolk Downtown pictures, however I favor a style of photography that goes from small to large. I like to see the smaller buildings build up to bigger buildings on the horizon and im proud to share some photos (Which are unedited at the moment) that I took in Downtown Norfolk. Yes, I took pictures of random things too. This was all taken day before yesterday, afternoon.
  6. @BFG @BeagleAccountant I dont know what has happened but it seems that it was an error. I will reupload them shortly.
  7. I was doing a photography project in the Downtown Norfolk area when VB decided to say hi. I decided it would be fun to post here. You know what? I did not even notice until now that Military circle gave a wave in the middle left area too.
  8. Note: None of these pictures were taken by or on a drone.
  9. If you notice, I repeatedly took pictures of signs or police cars which held the name of our city on it. The rest of these pictures are just a collection of more randomized shots.

  11. I was doing a photography project for the downtown area, I did not get a picture of it because they were not really looking for a uncompleted building. However, if it helps, the building has its 1st floor steel structure almost done and the concrete is being poured. Its coming together quite nice. I expect a few more months until it starts to really look like a building.
  12. Did yall see that Pharrell commented on this issue? He is also against the city's decisions to hunt down downtown businesses. https://www.13newsnow.com/article/news/local/mycity/norfolk/pharrell-weighs-in-on-norfolk-downtown-business-crackdown/291-fc7e189f-9e3a-4e8c-9499-a75403652ab5
  13. I think its because our Airport in Norfolk has been running alot of ads recently. I mean, there was a picture online with someone from our city in NYC Times square where they put an ad up on a billboard for Norfolk. Plus, I dont think the competition is as high as it seems, After all we are both 100 miles away from each other. Though, I guess it also depends on population and ofc, our military bases here. To add onto that, I went to RIC recently. Good looking airport!
