My 2020 Wish is that just before the implosion, Dominion announces massive height increases to their second tower to say... 38’ High!!! 

Assuming you mean 380' high?

I thought this is what he meant.  Of course I’d side with this thought since 38 floors is likely taller than 380 feet. :D

If we use the same floor to floor ratio as the first tower, the second tower would be 785 ft tall.  :w00t:

Assuming the crown is about 4 floors in height, we would easily get 730'.  It would be more centralized in the skyline as well compared to its suddenly shorter sister, so I could live with that :)

eands - If we took the wish of 38 floors for the second and used the same average floor to floor height of the first tower:  Take the entire building height of tower 1 and divide by the number its floors.  Then take that number and multiply by 38 floors to get the wishful height of tower 2.

So we could possibly have a new arena, new baseball stadium, national white water museum, new casino, and a wakeboard/surf park.  What is going on?!

Just posted about it under Suburban Developments.  Mixed use development with a 13 acre Lake near Brandermill and 288.

:tw_thumbsup:

At the end of the year someone asked what project we were looking forward to the most and now with these projects mentioned today, I'd like to identify which ones I'm looking forward to the most.

The view of the tank farm, low-rise industrial park and truck lots will be exquisite!

Hello, front desk, what's that smell?

Well, I would call that a busy week:

-Costar announces it is doubling its size to 2000 employees and may go into Navy Hill. 
- legislation introduced to shrink the size of the Navy Hill TIF substantially and making the $1.4B project closer to reality  

- Pamunkey Tribe announces $350M casino and resort

- giant surf/wave park mixed use development 

- Scott’s Addition hotel redevelopment includes 12 story tower

- getting closer to RFP for the boulevard redevelopment

What else did I forget about?

Yeah, can't believe it really. There was the renewed discussion on the area around the diamond too. The casino and surf-water park, the old me would say,  not a chance, but now,  I have no idea.

I just saw a quick story about VCC being bought completely now between the county of Hanover (we knew that part already) and another private developer (I think it was Rebkee)!

 

What an AMAZING week!!  Love it!

Yep!  That’s it!  Thanks.  I think that’s also a big deal. 

 

Just just a quick brainstorm here: with all the newly announced developments, I count at least 4ish new high rises downtown/Richmond city...that we know about (Dominion, CoStar, Casino, a VCU high rise within NH).

Don’t forget the Hyatt regency hotel high rise within navy hill.
