  1. I’m interpreting the slides to mean demolition of the existing building where the new tower is going starting in 2022 before tower construction begins. One slide mentions selling the Monroe Building.
  2. Doubtful Dominion still has plans on building a second tower anywhere at this point.
  3. Misinformation? Still waiting for Dominion to start building their second tower that was promised...
  4. Richmond and Norfolk would both need immigration and customs checkpoints to accommodate direct international flights. In airports that do have them, they are massive multi-story areas seen and unseen by passengers. I don’t see how Richmond or Norfolk could accommodate this with their current layouts. Maybe Richmond’s master plan’s third terminal expansion is something on the horizon that would push this idea forward? As a side note, I’ve always been miffed by the “international” label airports can have that don’t actually serve international destinations directly.
  5. Still waiting on that promised second Dominion Tower that was to finance the whole thing....
  6. Vytal Studios, the tech firm relocating to the Semmes Avenue warehouse has updated renderings of the complex on its website. https://vytalstudios.com
  7. I interpret the LAX route as a seasonal change. Maybe it will start back up again for the spring and summer months next year. Here’s hoping anyways.
  8. They are going to be billbording the heck out of I-95 coming from the south. I would guess at a volume on par with “South of the Border” signs going into South Carolina, but with less witty puns.
  9. Does anyone know if the concourse A expansion gates have all been accounted for with this agreement with Breeze? I don’t recall how many new gates were added with that project. Would be nice to see further concourse expansion happen soon!
  10. Building taller, skinnier buildings in front of the horseshoes means we could start calling manchester the horseshoe pit.
  11. I think Breeze maybe looking for a RIC-JAX connection. Did a little research on most underserved point-to-point routes. Surprisingly, RIC-SFO is in the top three. RIC-JAX is top three when it comes to underserved Florida markets.

    Putting a farmhouse-style cupola on a high rise structure is an absolutely ridiculous design aesthetic. *barf*
  13. Cordish wants to get into the hot real estate market around Scotts Addition, regardless of what they end up winning or not winning the Casino. Its an interesting proposition should Cordish become the master developer there. They will for sure be bringing their high-rent chain restaurant and retail establishments into a city that is fiercely loyal to small, independent businesses. They’re gonna need all the out-of-towers they can draw for something they build there to be successful. A large event space with programming independent of the summer baseball season is probably in the cards.
  14. Interesting nugget from this RichmondFreePress article: http://richmondfreepress.com/news/2021/apr/22/casino-contenders-now-down-2-ballys-out/ "Sources have told the Free Press that Cordish, a real estate development company, likes the site and would consider its development even if it loses the casino bid. The sources also said the company is eager to become the master developer for the city’s 60-acre parcel where The Diamond baseball stadium stands. The city is planning to issue a request for proposals this year."
  15. Seems like Norfolk would’ve been screwed anyways with the Waterside deal with Cordish. Don’t know what is happening with this nowadays but can expect this to drag out: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.pilotonline.com/government/local/vp-nw-norfolk-casino-cordish-lawsuit-threat-20201106-lz3yknlnvjaizkx2owutg2qmk4-story.html%3foutputType=amp
