  1. St. Paul's Quadrant

    Looks like this new development will encircle the church I grew up in and will build on top of the empty parcel on Fenchurch St. where my late Father's dental practice use to be.

    WVEC News story on the continued growth of Norfolk's Neon District. http://www.13newsnow.com/news/local/mycity/norfolk/parts-of-norfolk-undergoing-revitalization/441461076
  7. Waterside District

    Waterside can cater to both adults and children during the day. The play area is a great idea during day. Maybe orient some of the restaurants for everyone during the day including children. At 6pm or there about orient it to adults only.

    I'm glad Campostella is getting some new development, but the rendering makes it look so suburban. Nothing to write home about.
  9. Waterside District

    I think Waterside is going to suffer during the daytime because the venue is so bar centric. All I am advocating for is for the Waterside to attract a Dave and Buster's type restaurant that would appeal to adults and kids alike. Being a bar only ensures the place is busy at night on the weekend just like the old version of Waterside.

    Grocery store is badly needed. When we walked from Downtown over to Ghent a young gentleman asked for directions to Harris Teeter and I told him I thought it was over on Colonial Ave. The young man said he walked from the Residence Inn looking for the grocery store. I think maybe the market is ripe for a scaled down urban type of grocery store like Trader Joe's or Wholefoods.

    Took this picture Saturday on the Amtrak bus to Norfolk from Newport News. One of my favorite views of Norfolk's growing skyline.
  12. Waterside District

    The Waterside District is one nice looking building from the inside and outside. I am a drinker and love that there were so many bars and restaurants to choose from, but there is nothing for the kids or families. I thought this version was supposed to be family friendly. This is definitely a place for adults only even during the daytime. The jury is still out on whether or not Waterside can sustain itself being so bar centric.

    I was there and Downtown was very lively and even with the weather the wine fest was fun as usual. My partner always comments on how clean Downtown Norfolk is. I tell them that is a result of the Business Improvement District (BID) and years of planning on the part of the city. Downtown looked great and it seems Norfolk is finally getting close to its full potential.

    From looking at some of the plans for Military Circle it looks like the city is planning to turn the area into a town center and create a grid system of streets.
  15. Hilton Norfolk at The Main

    I was down in Norfolk this weekend and took this quick snapshot of the Main yesterday morning. Impressive building and I agree will be a game changer for Downtown.
