Dayum I thought there was a scoop or breaking news on a 3rd HE skyscraper lol.

I was hoping against hope, but is that really all the glass we’re going to get on this thing? it seems like it was re-designed... again ...to have even less glass at some point. My memory is faulty here!

I think it actually looks better than the final rendering. The darker glass gives it a sleeker, more modern, feel. I don't think the *amount of glass has changed. Depends on the angle you capture it from. That said, of course it will never live up to the original rendering.

As seen from the Gather offices at the BB&T building. 

Went to the battleship Wisconsin with the fam today.  Got some pics of River Tower, and CHKD.  The far shot from the stern of the ship is a bit underwhelming but the close up gives a better look at it

OK, I need to get my butt down there to see this in person. 2020 was a complete blur to me, and I’ve never been away from downtown for so many consecutive months in the past 22 years. 

In the meantime, I would be thrilled and grateful to view any new pics that someone here might be so kind as to snap! ;)

Thanks haha. That first photo doesn’t do the view justice. It’s been awhile since I’ve gone down that side of Brambleton, so I was blown away seeing River Tower, EVMS, and CHKD

Looks like they’re putting up the apartment building next to the Roebuck, so that area is really turning around quickly.

Will be in Norfolk next month for the first time since December 2019.  Look forward to taking pictures of Harbor's Edge River Tower.  In the meantime here is a link to Apartments.com with up to date photos of River Tower.
