Pembroke Mall Revelopment (Ongoing-Phase 1)

I think this concept would work better at the Military Circle Mall site.  I like what they are planning at Pembroke Mall, but again what's with Hampton Roads infatuation with vast parking lots?  Hide those things or build parking garages.  

They are specifically getting rid of some of those parking lots with this development and expanding the urban-ness of Town Center.  That’s a good thing for Pembroke Mall, right?

All in all, this is a great look for Town Center. Gives it a modern urban look. Makes it even more disappointing that they voted against light rail. 

You can bet that after the core is fleshed out, they'll take care of those parking lots as well. This is a lot of land, and will probably take a full 20 years to develop just like it did with Town Cen

Mr. Ramsey Smith reports to me that there will be some solid announcements in the coming weeks. Multiple. Multi-family, which every developer will tell you  is really the only way to make money in Vir

The mall site has multiple owners. Other than the parking around Kohl’s, the portion controlled by this owner is pretty throughly planned. Whatever agreement they have in place with Kohl’s may prohibit them from developing the remaining parking lot.

It will be interesting to watch how this evolves as it goes from design to build. I am not fond of this original concept plan, but would need to see more of it. It would be nicer if some sort of urban grid was created for Pembroke with the buildings conforming to that. Obviously it looks like the plan is to keep the big box stores for now, which was to be expected.

While not directly related to the redevelopment project, an office tenant has leased a large chunk of the remaining Sears space. Good first step to officially making this a mixed-use property. 

Decisions to Relocate to the Former Sears Building at Pembroke Mall

So is the building getting redeveloped or a massive renovation or are they actually putting office space in a windowless big department store building?

Reno. Don’t know anymore than the press release but it was already chopped up a few years ago. I suspect they’ll take the two floor section and leave the space along Independence for another retailer.

Not that I'm disappointed, but 52,000 feet would have made a big dent in the block two tower that Armada Hoffler is trying to build. I don't understand what it is they're doing that they can't fill that space. Obviously there's the demand for office space near town center.

I would imagine that a lot of it has to do with the price per square foot that AH is looking for.  I would bet that it is a fair amount higher than this deal.

Mr. Ramsey Smith reports to me that there will be some solid announcements in the coming weeks. Multiple. Multi-family, which every developer will tell you  is really the only way to make money in Virginia Beach rn. 

Additionally, he dropped a little bomblet on me saying that there are exciting times ahead for “Pembroke Square (f.k.a. Pembroke Mall). Hint.”
