New hotel pitched for Virginia Beach Town Center wants to use public parking

The project received some coverage from the Pilot and of course the social media protesters are going nuts about using the existing garages. At least this proposal uses what’s already there and not an additional garage. Bad news though: tomorrow’s meeting has been postponed due to the pandemic and there’s no timeline for when it will be heard. 

All the items on the cancelled agenda will be heard on April 7th.

Yep....same idiots that bought all the toilet paper. 

Lots of utility work going on in the area. With Apex construction completed, I have to believe that this is in preparation for the hotel.

This project is again moving through the planning process. Resubmitted application was received on April 22nd and is currently in review.

I really hope this project survives the downturn (or any project for that matter). Needless to say, entire session was designated to Covid response. Gonna have to wait a little while longer to see this through, if it’s still on the table.

The Development Authority discussed the project this week.  The presentation starts on page 13. The comments indicate the site plans and building plans are waiting for approval of parking and easements by city council before they can be finalized and approved by planning. 

It looks like it will make a good addition to the downtown, nothing flashy or tall, but it looks good. I am also impressed with my old Junior High getting a new building. Princess Anne Middle School looks like it will be an awesome looking school.

Project received final planning approval on May 13th. Easements were approved by city council on June 2nd. I have not been able to locate a construction start date but i'll guess by the end of the summer.

Any known updates?

The development authority approved a modification to the development agreement late last month. This modification was to add to the number of parking spaces which they can use, because they are increasing the number of rooms. No idea if there is also a corresponding increase in height because of this.

I’ve been seeing this over the past week or so.  They started with right lane closures and utility work around the utility building near the RR  tracks between Bon Secours and BUffalo Wild Wing.  That’s what I’ve been thinking too.

Yeah, it looks like they’re upgrading the sewer line that goes to the property. There were also some electrical workers surveying nearby.

Hopefully the hotel going in will help lease that space across the street in block 9 and block 10.  All that space facing Columbus street has had trouble leasing since it doesn't get much foot traffic.  Drybar, a salon,  just signed a lease for ~2000 SF on the corner of Market and Columbus so we could see some work for that tenant buildout.

I keep waiting to see if anything is happening at this property. :unsure:

Shamin is having some issues with another hotel that's in default that I'm not sure if it's affecting the timeline for this one as well. The hotel that's in default generally relied on conference revenue instead of hotel occupancy to generate it's income, and ran into trouble during the pandemic. A lot may depend on how they resolve that issue.

It appears that Shamin has been on a bit of a buying spree. They have purchased two hotels in the area, one a Hampton Inn at the ocean front, and the other the Renaissance Hotel in Portsmouth. Whatever the reason for the delay in construction, it certainly does not appear to be due to their financial health.

There appears to be site work/utility work occurring on the property itself. I’m waiting to get confirmation on a few things before I change the status of the thread, but we may be in business. :D

  • vdogg changed the title to Hampton Inn at Town Center (Under Construction)

They are in the very preliminary stages of site work. Property is marked up and utility relocation is underway, but may be a while before we see major movement/equipment.
