The 344, 000 square-foot Hampton Roads Convention Center has taken shape and is scheduled to open in the spring of 2005. Located next to the Hampton Coliseum, the convention center will attract millions of new visitors to Hampton, stimulate millions of dollars in new investment into the local economy, and increase sales tax revenues that the City can use to provide needed City services. Adjacent to the convention center, a 330 bed Embassy Suits Hotel developed by John Q. Hammons is in the mist of construction. Embassy Suits is expected to be completed about the same time as the convention center. For more information about booking a convention, conference, or seminar at the new convention center, contact the Hampton Convention and Visitors Bureau.

Newport News Projects and Construction

A. City Center at Oyster Point (thanks to Urbanfan for providing update/renderings :thumbsup: )

This is a rendering of the Marriot Hotel which is currently under construction. The convention center in the Center already has masonry up and steel in place. The building to the right is not being built as of yet.


The Garage to the left is under construction and will be wrapped with retail on the ground levels. The building to the right is One City Center which is currently under construction.


This rendering shows the retail district across from the garage and beside/behind One City Center. The tall tower in the back is not under construction and is part of another phase.


This is another view of the retail district which is currently under construction. The Garage in the background is the same as the one shown earlier.


This is the One City Center office building currently under construction.


B. The Meridian at City Center The Meridian



To be developed by Armada Hoffler the plans include an 18 story high-rise that will offer 72 luxury condominiums, built adjacent to the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center. Discuss this project

The third deck will be built in two phases with 724 spaces to be built immediately.
