African Art Museum (Proposed)

Recommended Posts


I would like the planned condos from the casino proposal better on this site.  Unfortunately the casino looks like it's really far down the road...if it even happens.

I know it's in the early stages but I pray that they change the hotel design. Looks like a watch tower for a maximum security prison.

This would be a good project for the St. Paul’s lot.  And don’t worry, this won’t pass design review as is.

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.

VERY cool project. I do hope the design changes, but this would be a great attraction for Norfolk. Looks like a new LRT station too?

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.

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.

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

I feel the need to censor this image for some reason. :huh:

The rendering looks pretty bad but I'm sure it's preliminary. To be honest, it looks better than the buildings at the VB TC and would fit right in there.

The hotel rendering is pretty bad, but I'm hoping it's just something to show what could potentially go at that site. With the proposed casino, I hope they will definitely design something much more exciting and contemporary.
