Dream Developments for Downtown


Recommended Posts

I thought it would be fun to post images/examples about your "dream development" for Norfolk. It can be anything you would like to see. We often disagree about specific developments and it is interesting to hear different views on each. I'll start with one of mine.

 

This is an image of a 26 floor residential tower soon to be built in Charlotte. I would like it for Norfolk for many reasons.

1. I love the architectural style and think it fits great within an older historic downtown like Norfolk. I love the brick.

2. I love the height. At 26 floors it would be substantially tall in Norfolk but not unreasonably tall.

3. I like the setbacks and articulation in the building. It is not a box.

4. Would be great on the old Granby Tower site or the Snyder lot or somewhere close to a light-rail stop.

5. Retail on the bottom floor is always an added benefit.

I believe your last bullet point is already in the works with the coming extension of the Elizabeth River Trail all the way to the HeadWaters Casino.

Anything not cookie cutter and over 4 or 5 stories.

-A glass residential tower on the former Granby Tower site, at least 25 stories.
-A mixed-use tower on Snyder's Lot, at least 35 stories.
-A mid-rise development (at least 10 stories) on the vacant corner of MacArthur Center, which kicks off the redevelopment of a street grid for the old mall. Maybe a hotel.
-More mid-to-high rise mixed-use at SPQ.
-A high-rise apartment on the old Waterside Annex.
-At least one high-rise residential tower (~20 stories) west of Harbor Park.
-A green riverwalk leading from Harbor Park to Town Point Park.
