  1. The medical center is going to be really dense once all the new buildings are built! Pushing future buildings up!!!
  2. Construction walls are going up. DEMO to start soon.
  3. One would have thought that they would have altered the floor plan to offer a view of the lake right behind building.
  4. This building along with the completed height increase to Norfolk General, the new EVMS building and the new CHKD building will create a new synergy in Fort Norfolk that will promote further redevelopment. These are the seeds that will bear more fruit.
  5. There needs to be a pedestrian bridge over I-64 connecting IKEA and the outlets. Then shuttles wouldn't be needed.
  6. Me thinks that this area around the outlet mall and IKEA is ripe to BOOM. New hotels, New stores, eateries...
  7. https://pilotonline.com/news/local/article_a8b6fbd2-38f5-11e8-bd8c-c39054e0dc41.html This looks promising. Ben Carson takes a tour in Norfolk and praises Norfolk's St. Paul's Quadrant Plan!
  8. I agree, looking at the reverse angle from I264, only part of city hall shown is the tower. Is it possible that they are going to save the tower, but demolish the two story portion that fronts Union St. and change the main entrance to the tower to at the new round-about Main St extension? Perhaps the office building that the city bought will temporarily house those departments?
  9. Great energy in the Medical Center... What are there..... Three new buildings going up? I'm only concerned that parking will become even more difficult.
  10. I think that Sentara is leading the charge in reinventing the area where the Leigh hospital is. They are clearing building up with a medical campus that looks more urban. I can see that area a little mid town between DT Norfolk and VB Town Center. Now if only VB would get onboard LRT.....
  11. I agree. Riddick is an idiot. There is plenty of space in the SPQ to build a facility for seniors. (For those who cannot afford Harbor's Edge) IMHO, I think that the Sniders lot should be used for a new signature tower. It's accessibility to LRT, the interstates, and the new city courthouse makes the lot HIGHLY desirable. Now the private sector needs to step up and present a proposed tower to WOW us!
  12. Wait until IKEA opens. Traffic will be even worse and IKEA wont have a back way in.
  13. Carnival is shuffling their ships around and the result is Norfolk losing out in 2018. I do think there will be a return in 2019 of some type. I will have to look into that more.
  14. The Carnival Sunshine. I took cruise on it out of Norfolk Last October and had a blast! Taking another cruise on it this Friday! WOOHOO!
  15. If a new city hall gets built at TC, it needs to be more grand than that box pictured. LOL
  16. I noticed that when I was driving on that part of I64.....I meant to snap a pic. That part of the Northampton corridor is going be crazy.
  17. I have to agree, I drove through downtown Sat night and there was definitely a lively vibe going on. Waterside was mobbed, the area surrounding the Main was hopping, and Granby street was buzzing. DT and TPP are going to be crazy Friday June 9th. Not only will there be the Harborfest parade of sail @ noon, but the Carnival Sunshine will be in port to embark on a 5 night cruise to the Bahamas and leaving @ 5pm.
  18. So the Virginian Pilot is engaging in FAKE NEWS? LOL
  19. http://pilotonline.com/entertainment/tv/guy-fieri-is-in-norfolk-taking-selfies-at-the-main/article_cea501b6-d121-5946-a48e-851e8f3a2053.html Guy has been spotted at Grain at the Main and has been filming locally for Triple D. Plus he will be here to promote his Smokehouse. This will be more than Just a Marketplace stall!!!!
