For The Record: Is there a secret plan for downtown development?

FtR-nf

Aug. 28, 2017 - There is no secret development plan, but downtown Hampton has been generating a lot of interest. Most recently, an experienced development group has submitted a proposal for downtown projects on several pieces of publicly owned land.

For the record, they would start by adding housing and a destination waterfront restaurant. They also plan a seafood market, which would tie in with the expansion of Virginia Tech’s seafood and aquaculture research facility.  

The WVS Cos. and Saunders + Crouse Architects’ proposal sees in downtown Hampton the kind of lifestyle amenities and authenticity that make an urban area attractive, especially to Millennials and Baby Boomers.

The group would build along Settlers Landing Road and Wine Street to link the waterfront with Queens Way. The plan includes luxury apartments with rooftop decks.

The city is seeking feedback on the concept. No agreements have been reached on moving forward.
