African Art Museum (On Hold)


Recommended Posts

Having been to the NMAAHC in Washington, D.C., that was an amazing experience. The museum on Hampton's campus is another great one, so if this can be anywhere close to those two museums, Norfolk has a winner on its hands. This sounds very promising, esp. with the UN and National Endowment for the Arts behind it.

The design looks horrible, but a great idea overall. This would be a great step forward for creating an urban district around the ballpark.

I think the design for the museum actually looks nice. The hotel tower could definitely use some tweaking IMO.

An ugly tower is better than no tower, however the design looks very preliminary.  Hopfully they can make it look better when things become more concrete.  Lets hope that they dont shave off some floors and build the thing out of brick though.

I disagree. An ugly tower is worse than no tower sometimes

I went to Engage Norfolk at Norview High today, and there was a table talking about this. According to one of the reps, they hope to break ground this year and complete the project within the next 2-3 years.

They've got a lot of work to do to get to that point. Design Review, Planning Commission, the fact that the city doesn't want to do anything with that land until the casino is finalized. Have they secured financing yet? I'm skeptical. If this thing actually gets off the ground before Gateway, it'll be both ironic and shocking.
