It won't be built if they lose funding. See Virginian-Pilot article here.

Ah, politics. Sure, officially, its a private institution. That's simply because the state hasn't officially bought it yet. The problem with the state buying the school is that the hospital is privately owned and not School owned. Then what do they do? Build another hospital?

The school would have been public had the state seen the need to support it before it was constructed in the 70s. Unfortunately, as is all too often, our politicians cannot seem to see trends before it is too late.

Either way, Im pretty sure the funds will be delivered.

They are driving piles at EVMS today... Maybe just test piles but the pile driving business is doing well in Norfolk right now.

Just got this email from EVMS President, Harry Lester:

Great news! Today the House/Senate Conference Committee agreed to include EVMS in the Higher Ed Bond package for $59 million for a new building! Thanks to all of you for your support during the last few months as we made our case with the General Assembly. Special thanks to Governor Kaine who put EVMS in the original package.

So the plans are a go.

I still don't think I've seen a rendering of the new bldg. Is one available? Will it block view of CHKD (a great bldg) when complete?

Does anyone know what exactly is going here, the construction seems to be going very slow. Im mostly interested in how big/tall this structure will be? I'm glad to see EVMS expand. The only rendering I've seen shows new construction on a different lot than whats actually taking place. confused?

The active construction is definitely an extension of the existing parking garage, connecting to both SNGH and CHKD, across from the CHKD ER.

Its a bit of a shame, yes, that that land is going to be a garage, but I argue for it being fairly necessary, unless they are to build everything more vertical in that area. I doubt the residents want that, so this is what happens. Im not sure if they plan to leave space for storefront on colley, but i doubt it. Just remember, they are building over a surface lot, not empty land.

I would also argue the most wasted prime pieces of real estate is colley ave itself. How many non-historic, one-story shoppes can they have. Tear some of those down and build 3 stories throughout the corridor. Get rid of 7-11, surface lots, extend shoppes across traintracks to now defunct colley bike shop and velvet...the area that they are building the garage is more of a thoroughfare without much pedestrian traffic...the stores dont start for another 3 blocks.

I'm almost 98% sure, its not a parking garage. The floors are too close together and there is literally no incline anywhere around the building...

ok, it looks like I'm wrong...i guess there's no incline because its an addition to an existing garage. Either way, i wish the land had been used for something else other than a garage

Is everyone sure this is just a parking garage? They could have thrown up a pre-cast one 10 times quicker.

Glad we finally have a verdict on what's actually going there... I've heard from several people that it''s an academic building. Maybe that will come after...
