This area is going be really cool. However, that long white wall which I think is the backside of the Dollar tree warehouse looks ugly and out of place. I hope they can build store fronts or break it up with some trees or something. 

The long term plan is to relocate the distribution center and develop the whole 69 acre site but that will be the last portion developed. They’ve said the entire project is expected to take 35 years.

Wow, this really is going to become downtown Chesapeake

Where have you seen this information? I’d love for it to be true as I have the same sentiments about the warehouse.

Also, construction update on the second office tower and wee bit of the apartments are visible here too.

Dollar Tree PUD Development Criteria

Not sure if the 35 year timeline is mentioned in here but I know it’s been mentioned in older Pilot articles from when it was being rezoned and before the Family Dollar acquisition. It’s still on the table as it was discussed in a meeting with the city manager & business leaders in Chesapeake.

Man, that rendering of the new office tower going up is incredibly underwhelming compared to previous renderings... Thanks, VE

I wouldn’t worry too much about the individual building renderings here. These images are meant to show the massing of the development rather than focus on architectural features.

Holy suburban town center Batman!

Seriously!

I mean, trying to create an urban landscape is great; but not if you’re going to pave parking lots. Build another garage and use all those parking lots for more buildings with some street presence; otherwise this is just going to be another office park.

Y'know...I actually like this. It gives me NOVA vibes. Looks a lot like something you'd see in Arlington. That said, I love/hate that the suburbs of Hampton Roads want urban looking city centers, and Norfolk wants a suburban extension of the true downtown with SPQ. THIS is what I want to see alongside St. Paul Blvd!

In a touch of irony, I got my wish today. Heard through the grapevine, and then fact checked with a trusted source, that the large parking lot next to Dollar Tree HQ is being replaced by a parking deck. Braking ground Q4, timeline of 1 year to complete. Should be “exact size” of other current deck. “All Dollar Tree” so it would be a surprise if this included any semblance of ground retail or residences.

So north of the HQ along Crossways? They did just file a site plan titled “Dollar Tree North Parking Garage” which I assumed was part of the next block that they just started work on. The ‘North’ would make more sense with what you’ve shared.

It’s my understanding that it will go where the current parking lot is.

      The Kmart at 1 Kmart Plaza, near the main hospital, is closing, as per USA Today.  I am told that Bi-Lo is closing as well at some point. 
      What will happen to the site?  It's been a shopping center for at least 50 years.
      With this Kmart closing (clearly the store incurred next to nothing in ongoing capital expenses and likely had very low rent), what does that say about the Haywood Mall Sears closing at some point?

      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;

      Bunglaower reports a 13-story multi-family residential tower is being proposed for 108 E. Livingston Street called Magnolia Rose. 
      The proposed 320 unit development would also include space for six parcels of ground-level retail. The plan, submitted on 4/20, calls for the City to abandon a section of North Rosalind Avenue, which translates to approximately 77,982 SF of right-of-way, to host an adjoined five-story, 395-space parking garage.
