Dare I do even speculate at the notion of a numerical named convienence store there? :P

Oh Thank Heaven!

Yes, I did try to line up those things. . . Sometimes it's an accident, but often, it is not. 

There are some calculated composition decisions in those "snapshots" . 

Your subconscious might not know why, but it understands.

So geeked about this project.  I feel like this is going to be more transformative then most of the other things happening outside of the large projects like CV and the Magic project.  That “wedge” was blighty and combined with Magnolia and the Rosalind cut-through road it was a wide expanse.

I do not think most people can understand how transformative this corner, IS undergoing.  . . .

It is THE thing. 

Yes,

Drove by it for the first time yesterday.  Agreed.  Super transformative.  Once the masssing starts, it's going to be a great visual coming up Rosalind

Other than not having a grassy lot I don't understand how it's going to transform this corner.

 It’s all opinion but I think the location is the reason why.  Reading through the thread you’ll see some of these pop up but here’s my short list:

- Combined with SkyHouse’s plaza/pocket park - potential activity center of restaurants and retail.

- This hub will be the shortest walk for office workers in Landmark, Eola Park Centre and Courthouse.  Largely underserved area for food/drink now.

- Will also be shortest walk for residents in Vue, SkyHouse, Radius and west half of Lake Eola Heights.

- Currently, most people I know that take the train and walk to Eola area avoid walking that way and cut down to Robinson.   Just can’t think of another standalone building that is going to change the street life activity that drastically.

Just the fact that it's being transformed from a blighted, undeveloped empty grass field with a crumbling old concrete slab as its main feature, to a gleaming new high rise building with a plaza, landscaping and ground floor businesses that will attract people to gather there, makes it transformative.

IOW, it will cause a drastic and positive change (transformation) of that corner.

Agreed.  The bookend is what I'm most excited for.  I'm always skeptical in these retail spots that are on the fringes of the CBD because they haven't managed to survive in little pockets by themselves too well.

It’s not going to do much to turn Rosalind into an urban, pedestrian friendly street. Until it’s converted back to a two-way street that is less hostile to pedestrians, the status quo remains.

Where this building can help is to extend the Amelia street wall eastward and to hopefully ignite some activity on the grossly underserved north section of Magnolia near the courthouse. 

Unfortunately, anyone living in this building looking west has the absolutely terrible view of that Skyhouse garage.

Old rendering:

I too am looking forward to the terminating vista at the bend in the road -- especially when the feature wall lights up in the evenings. I've lived in the CBD for approx 7 years and drive by this site daily... TBH I've mentally blocked out that area (including travelodge) due to it being a barren wasteland w/zero street level activity. Now when I drive by and see cranes rising up from the site it kinda gives my brain a visual jolt. Once completed (along with the travelodge site redevelopment) that area will begin to show signs of life and add to the street level experience. Whenever there is a foot race, parade, outdoor event, etc you can feel the energy wither away once you cross Robinson. Hopefully having new apartment residents walking about and more ground floor retail will lead to increased street level activity in that area.

Remember when the North Quarter transformation only consisted of Uptown Place and Park North at Cheney Place? The addition of the Ustler Building at 807 N Orange, Steelhouse, NORA, 777's/Camden, etc filled in the gaps, added to the pedestrian experience and having a continuous streetwall created a bit of a traffic calming effect as well. Hopefully a similar effect will happen just above Robinson.

Looking at this rendering do we have an idea on the retail that's planned to come in here?  Surely not a Chipotle and a Starbucks right?

Looking down Livingston, the cranes are up!  If all of these Livingston projects happen, this view is going to be drastically different.

I must be missing something.  If that's Livingston I'm looking at, shouldn't the cranes be right in front of Skyhouse?

Oops! I saw the cranes and got excited. I guess they're for Parcel M.

How'd you get the elevated vantage point? I'm guessing you were at or near Herndon airport when you took that one and the other one from the photo thread.

Looking north there are a ton of cranes right now - I’ll try to get a photo from Vue or Eola Park Centre today

      Just a link to the MPB staff report.
      I combined Ph 2 tower and Ph 3 former Church Street Station re-work as it seems they are both ramping up to start.

      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?
