Virginia Beach Stores, Retail, and Restaurants

It's funny how this article starts with this: 

Imagine a grocery store with a thousand types of beer and several aisles of wine. Add to that a cheese shop, a seafood market that sells flounder and squid, and a dining area with a sushi chef and a pub.

Such a place – Wegmans – exists. But not in Virginia Beach. Not yet anyway.

 

The new Kroger Market Places in the 757 already have all these amenities. It's nothing "NEW"! LOL!

There is work going on (site clearing) near the Chartway FCU (by the former pawn shop and for site of a former restaurant) on Virginia Beach Blvd.  (in the Town Center area.)  Does anyone know whats going on there?  Or can anyone with better research skills than I have find out?

I do my banking at that Chartway and I asked them about what was being built next door when I was there today. They said it is a Chick-Fil-A.

Nooo, I was hoping they were finally starting to clear things for a new tower over there. We really don't need another Chick-Fil-A...

VB's online permit records show it is a Chick-Fil-A

Anybody have any potential sites for a Wegmans?  I've heard the old rumors for the former HQ at Town Center and speculation that the 'unique retailer' for the Lake Wright driving range is them but I'm curious to see if there's any other large retail developments that could support a Wegmans.

Brennen, out of curiosity, how do you find those records?

https://citizenaccess.vbgov.com

Chesapeake uses the same system if you're interested.

I also looked to see if Norfolk uses a similar system (they don't) but did come across this:  https://batchgeo.com/map/64a1948c2f9487b290d8f12f798b9859

Map application that accomplishes the same thing as the databases.

I've tried searching every way I can think of and I simply cannot find it.  I guess perhaps I don't know how to use the search system properly.

My source tells me that a unique-to-the-region national restaurant concept will be coming to Lynnhaven Mall in the recent redevelopment/addition (across from the new L.L. Bean). It's probably the one people request the most in this area. Unfortunately, the name cannot be confirmed right yet.

Ah... maybe Shake Shack or something along those lines?

Personally, there are a lot of fast-casual chains in DC that would work well here. Cava Grill, Nando's and La Madeleine to name my top three wish list (being as we are getting Bonchon in Norfolk).

^^Cava Grill just announced an urban (the Fan/VCU) location in Richmond today, so I'd say Cava in HR is on the boards, they're slowly making their way down from the northeast like Wegmans

Well that is good to hear. I see on their website that they are doing a hard push to expand in Southern CA as well so I was thinking that would put the quash on us getting one. 

The food is very good and the prices are aligned with Chiptloe. If you haven't been, check it out!

Meh. The food on the website does not even look good. The menu is way too many pages and way too many different cuisines. Unique as in "slightly lower budget Cheesecake Factory? I do hope this is not what  boabas is referring to below, especially since I don't think this is the most requested place in our area.
