Radius | 13-Story Residential [Under Construction]

Recommended Posts


Everything suggests over-night roadwork, not necessarily anything with vertical construction yet. More equipment on site is better IMO, though. Hahaha.

Could be!!!

If not, at least it makes it easier for the homeless people to find a place to use the toilet.

Indeed! 

Great job, Clark Kent!  (useful to change into a cape as well, do they even have phone booths anymore these days?)

Looked to be some type of soil boring equipment on site, as well. 

We're all very excited about the boring equipment!!! :thumbsup:

From Elon Musk’s Boring Companies? Will there be a hyperloop under downtown?

The project is about a 6.5-7 but the fact that we'll get rid of a vacant lot and add 320 new apartment units downtown is a 10.

Exactly this. That lot (and the empty building next to it) has been an eyesore for as long as I can remember. 

The design is nothing to write home about, but it will improve the whole vibe of the area. Hopefully it will help jump start the demo of the Travelodge, too.

I'd rather have an empty lot than exactly nothing original whatsoever.

look at the renderings and streetscapes on the prior pages.  I agree about the design, but where it's going is what's the huge plus for me.  Remember, this lot and Skyhouse' lot were homeless havens.  Now, this will complete the transformation of that two block area.  

I edited it...

Eh, you have a point. It's not a dinky complex, either. Just wish it had more architectural flair.

      The city council retreat is underway. Ryan Murphy of The Pilot is live tweeting from it. There is a lot of development discussion and focus in here to unpack. I am pretty new here but one development I may have missed or have never seen mentioned is a senior living development next to the fire station.
      Here is the first post of the thread;
      And here's the post referencing the senior living development;

      Dollar Tree is adding 600 jobs and expanding their headquarters. They said they will be building the "tallest building" in Chesapeake. Pictures in the article look to be a town center style environment within the Grennbrier area.

      I wanted to post a thread on this to see if anyone else was interested, curious, or knowledgeable about prefab homes.  My girlfriend and I are considering either a major addition to our home or demoing the structure and building a custom home.  I understood prefab to be better built due to the ability to build in a controlled environment, but also cheaper due to the economies of scale achieved by building similar homes in one location.  This would be especially true for the modular homes.  However, I am finding many of the prefab homes are priced in the $350-$500/sqft. range, excluding land costs!  One company (Turkel Design) gave me a quote for $143 for site work costs, which would include running the plumbing, electrical, installing the cabinetry, etc.   The materials (drywall, cabinets, counters, appliances, etc.) come as part of another $150,000 line item for the budget.  The big issue I am having is comparing apples-to-apples.  How do I confirm what a comparable house would cost to build on site?
      Does anyone have an personal experience with these types of homes or projects?

      The old Ramada Inn turned failed Duke Condo project turned failed boutique hotel by Graduate Hotels, is in the process of being demolished.  It appears everyone has given up at this point on trying to save the bones of this building and it's going to be razed for a 342 unit apartment complex and parking deck.  The design is being handled by CLINE Design on behalf of Alliance Residential out of Charlotte.

      General site plan which definitely maximizes every inch of their site as opposed to the giant sprawling parking lot currently there:
