That is a great renovation building, I always imagined it was a tear down or better yet a fall down building, but it is good to see that it will be getting new life. It is really nice to see my dream of Fort Norfolk becoming Norfolk's lofts district is really starting to become more and more of a reality.

Thank God! Been waiting for years for this eyesore to be transformed. 

I hope they have an artist and some lighting experts do something with that mixing tower up there. Whatever the heck that was, forgive my ignorance. I forget now, but it was probably a cold or dry storage or warehouse building or something much as was Harborplace back in the day. 

However, it still pains me that those wonderful brick, low-slung cotton warehouses were demolished along the waterfront over there. They were awesome.

If you scroll up about seven posts you will see the rendering.

In fairness those renderings were preliminary, watercolored, and not very detailed. Hard to get a feel for the final product off of that. I think what baobabs was looking for was something more along the lines of the River Tower rendering, or the final Hilton renderings.

Right. I was hoping so anyway. I'm sure this thing had to pass design review, so there should be something more detailed floating around out there somewhere. Perhaps nothing we can access, however.

The land behind the Front St. Flats (phase I) is now being prepped for phase II. The lot stretches from phase I to the edge of the parking deck of The Pier condos.

I do realize that this work could be simply a beautification effort in advance of completing phase I. I'm not sure if ph. II has been reviewed or approved yet.
