NSU development

45 posts in this topic


I figured it was being forgotten about so I started the thread. Then I was going through all my pictures and seen some old ones and wanted to see what it looked as it was being built. Thanks guys!

Wow! Nice pics. I talked to them about the RISE center, as I have a business doing web hosting/server colocation and am looking to move it. The first building is NSU / EDU only, with the second building planned to have leasable business space. There are plans to have 8 buildings, I believe.

There is much press made over the supernode that exists on campus, but it is little more than a hut for the telcove fiber ring that already stops off at lots of businesses. Not a huge difference over the Cox Fibernet MAN that is strung all over Hampton Roads.

Building is going up fast though.

This is directly across from the 7-11 @ Brambleton and Park Ave.

Right before you go under the underpass coming from the Campostella Bridge and it will be on the left hand side

Okay, I know the site. Good to see some development over in that area, it was in need of some help.

Has anyone notice that the building looks nothing like its original concept other than being square. The original building had semi curtain wall glass around the exterior on each floor. Now the building has tiny little windows. I'm a bit disappointed. Here is a link to what it was originally supposed to look like.

Those were concept drawings. The drawings that went to permit look exactly like whats built. I must say that I am more fond of the way it is as compared to the curtain glass look.

The building is supposed to be a technology and applied research hub. I just think the curtain wall glass lends itself to that type of image. The use of more brick and smaller windows makes it look like another city admin building. For all the hype that NSU put out about the Rise center, its not really standing out on its campus.

Looks like they're just about done with the exterior. :thumbsup:

Why doesn't the State of Virignia invest more into the institutions that represent how well we educate our youth?

NSU was opened because African-Americans could not go to schools like ODU. Now that we are beyond that they need to merge the schools together or give each one the money they need to operate.

The brand new Student Center will be a 80,800 square foot, three story brick and aluminum structure built behind the existing Godwin Student Center, which will be connected to the new Center via a third floor bridge. The Center will be constructed in two phases: the first phase is the building of the new structure, while the second phase is the renovation of the existing Student Union.

The new Center will include a multipurpose sports arena, which will seat 2,000 persons; meeting rooms for student use; a cafeteria; a wellness center; student lounges; administrative offices for the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs; a boardroom for University administrative use; and a 486-seat auditorium. The new Student Center is slated to open in July, 2008.

that is good to hear, the current Student Center is so ghetto and run down. A college really shouldn't be like that.

Sounds cool, but small-ish. My college has just started foundation work on our new Student Center (Student Union), but it will be 200,000 sq ft. and my school only has 4000 students!

Let us remember NSU is a state supported school that gets very little from the state. In times past it was underfunded by the policies of a state that did not want the students of NSU to ride in the front of a bus. Now it is just plain underfunded.

I believe Tim Reid who runs New Millenium Studios in Petersburg is a Norfolk State alumnus. Isn't he often involved in fund raising for the University?

I think the point of the list was to show that Norfolk State does not get the most money in the state. Even with a per capita break down I seriously doubt you will find numbers to support that claim.

Besides, for the most part, all state universities are underfunded by the state... they fight like wolves for the funding they get.

Ladies and Gentlemen, I understand what you are saying but, NSU and VSU have never been given the same State attention as GMU, VCU or even ODU. To say that the States two HBCUs have always been treated equal or with greater funding is something that you would have to prove.
