EVMS Education Building

Nevermind, it's definitely on different sites. This tower is on the corner of Colley and Brambleton. CHKD will be on Brambleton on the opposite side of the garage that this tower attaches too. That area is going to start looking like a second downtown.

Thanks vdogg. This looks like another great addition to the Fort Norfolk area. Here are some pics from the download.

I predict the building will be neo-colonial brick by this time next week. :D

I seem to recall that we had a mashup expert around here somewhere who might be able to show us what that intersection/area would look like once the three projects are completed.

4. Don't forget about Tarrants Bay, even though that's been awfully quiet over the past year. Wonder what the status of that one is...

Great point. I've heard nothing on that one for quite some time.  These folks seem not to want to engage the press or the public. They never came forward for comment, and they have not been seen or heard from since the rezoning request.

"RRMM, along with EYP, is currently working with the Eastern Virginia Medical School on their new Education and Academic Administration Building. This new 144,000 sq. ft. facility, with 350 space parking garage, will house the M1, M2 and Medical Masters programs and staff, as well as consolidating numerous academic support departments currently dispersed in multiple buildings both on and off the EVMS campus. This new “signature” facility will embody and strengthen EVMS’s well-defined purpose as a provider of excellent medical education. Working with the EVMS staff, our cohesive and attractive design will provide a gateway building and help to unify the campus and build upon the standards set thorough the rest of the EVMS campus."interior2-539x399.jpg

It is. Fort Norfolk is starting to have some amazing architecture.

I use to work for EVMS Health services before relocating to the Bmore area. Talked with some old colleagues about this (honestly not unusual), they heard nothing about it. EVMS has this funky type of relationship with its Health services division. Hopefully this will all pan out.

It'll pan out. They've done a lot of design work to just do nothing. These types of projects are generally pretty solid because they're owner occupied and don't have to worry about the types of financing issues you see with apartments, condos, etc.

That's what i'm saying. They have deeeep pockets. A lot of this construction is self financed. They have a 5 year plan so I expect to see both of these towers under construction within one year, tow at the most.

This is their 2014 financial report. They had over $280 million in assets back then. 

Additionally, they requested $67 million last year for the new education building. Funding should already be in hand. There should be a very short time frame from proposal to construction much like what happened with the Sentara vertical expansion.

They operate under a public- private arrangement with almost 100M endowment in the bank  and positive growth on the revenue side. Plus, you're right when it comes to capital improvement projects for state-sponsored schools:  there's usually plenty of money at their disposal upon request.
