    Looks good to me, more like a refurbishment of existing urban buildings rather than new construction. I like it.

    Congratulations Monarchs. Feels good to beat the Hokies, doesn't it? Hopefully you don't continue the hot streak this week vs. my ECU Pirates.

    No, I haven't been since early summer. Can't say I 'm surprised.

    Good thread. I want to go to the Bier Garden in Portsmouth. Anyone have any suggestions? Good? Bad?

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. Seems like it could hurt Waterside. To me it's like building a new mall a few blocks from MacArthur. Doesn't seem necessary.

    I would like to see (and I think that is the direction) SPQ develop like the South End area of Charlotte. Key would be getting a LR line up St. Paul's Blvd. I don't think SPQ (at least the northern part) will ever really be an extension of DT. Rather it should become a denser urban neighborhood. South End is booming with low/mid height apartments, office buildings, shops, etc. Very walkable (it seems). Check out the area on the Charlotte page.

    Nice. Norfolk needs more waterfront housing options. Between this, River tower and Tarrants Bay, there's some synergy going on in Fort Norfolk.

    This is a very poor attempt, but wouldn't Dominion Tower look cool with a crown/pyramid? Photo taken from Emporis. Poor drawing by me.

    I told you it would look better (more elegant) taller. It does.

    I thought the nearest stop was at the Courthouse, across St. Pauls?

    Could be apartments over retail. My theory is, if it is residential over retail, the city can call it TOD, since it's adjacent to the LR line. TOD was promised with LR but little has been delivered. This could be the parcel the city can point to and say, look....TOD, LR is doing what was promised. BTW, I'm not opposed to TOD there, it's better than a surface parking lot.
