    John Marshall Hotel

    The website does look good! I am very pleased to see that construction is actually under way. This project has taken so long to get off its feet.
  2. Tom, I haven't seen your byline lately. Hope you are well. There's an interesting read on the Richmond forum about the John Marshall Hotel. Construction started yesterday on the $66 million retrofit.

    Biloxi and the Coast

    Ohr Museum Update In a brief review of BidClerk, I spied a listing for a museum renovation/expansion which could only be the ill-fated Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art in Biloxi. As you may recal, the campus designed by Frank Gehry sustained significant damage from Katrina. I will post as I get more information. I also noticed a listing for a museum expansion in Ocean Springs which I assume is the Walter Anderson Museum. Both projects are good news for an area which has had relatively little good news since Katrina.

    Portsmouth development

    In which building is the new sports lounge? Not the Professional Building on the corner?

    John Marshall Hotel

    This project has been mired in tribulation for so long that I can only hope it will move forward soon. No news?

    Charlotte-Douglas Airport (CLT) Expansion

    Indianapolis? Really? I'm speechless. Perhaps the less said about the architecture of Charlotte-Douglas the better. I don't mind going through CLT, but it's a bland experience.

    New Hotels

    Wasn't a major hotel supposed to be built where the University Shopping Center once stood? I'd thought it was supposed to go up somewhere around where the old theater used to be. I'm surprised that a major hotel hasn't been built immediately next to the LSU campus. BTW, hello again, I know it's been ages. I'm back again.
