Anyone heard of "Rivers Edge at Berkeley" yet? I think this is new. Also, due to the lowering demand for condos I would imagine this would be an apartment building perhaps?

Forward to page 26 of this pdf file... these are the conceptual plans for the southside.

It looks like they're describing the area right across from Spotico Creek where they have the 3 multi-family units depicted.

Thanks for finding that humoungous file. That answers every question I could've possibly asked about this project. :lol: It sounds interesting and seems like it'll be a good development for that area. Can't wait till we get some ground level rederings.

Lol, beat me to it, but here's a blurb:

Downtown's high-rise housing boom could extend across the Elizabeth River to Berkley, an area better known for its shipyards, if an ambitious plan to build three condominium towers becomes a reality.

Sunsations Realty, a Virginia Beach development group, has proposed the project, which would include a 31-story tower that would be the city's second-tallest building. Two towers would be 15 stories high and prices would start in the mid-$200,000s, Vice Mayor Paul R. Riddick said.

They sure kept quiet about this one, and it's already been approved by the Planning commission.

Holy Crap! But the question is, can we support another residential tower? Also, looks like HR is firmly in the 30-story category, all it took was that one. :)

I'd rather have these in Fort Norfolk/Atlantic City, but it sure would create a neat experience coming in to Norfolk on 464.

If I'm not mistaken, thats all empty land. :shok: I never thought Norfolk's skyline would grow in that direction! What a curveball!

Do not expect any of this to start construction soon. This is probably more along the lines of a Centennial tower type thing with construction starting around 2009 or something. They're probably gonna wait for the condo market slowdown to flatline before they even attempt construction.

I am actually against this project at first sight. It is basically three residential towers that would be cut off from everything and would have to solely rely on car drivers.

Now if this development worked with the Berkeley neighborhood and made things better for it, then I would support it.

I am really excited about this potential development on the Berkely side of the Elizabeth River. I know it might be a while before the towers are built but they will definitely change the character of the Berkely neighborhood. The proposal to extend the Elizabeth river ferry service to this location is a good one. :rolleyes:

Do you guys realize how expansive our skyline will look approaching downtown from the beach. With Hoffler, Brambleton and Granby to the right of downtown and this project to the left you won't be able to fit it all in a single shot. Norfolks really gonna look like the major city it is in a few years time. :)

Amazing project. I just hope the market can handle such a large influx of more condos.

True. They would be tapping into the a market which really hasn't had much opportunity bc of the high prices of everything else (388, Harbor Heights, Granby, etc.). That's a great selling point for this project.
