Downtown Norfolk Construction Updates

The Downtown Norfolk Council works closely with the City to gather information on road and sidewalk construction that may impact our Downtown community and visitors. The most active construction projects with advisories can be found on our Street Smarts page with additional safety information.

The information we gather is promptly shared through our Street Smart Traffic Alerts

We also invite you to take advantage of our SNAP MAP™, an interactive map providing up-to-date information on street, sidewalk and lane closures associated with construction. The map also provides information on where to park, in addition to information about street-level business in the Downtown area and much more.

On the Horizon:

 
TCC Center for Visual & Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management
701 Monticello Avenue
Tidewater Community College will relocate its Visual Arts Center into Norfolk’s NEON District. The college is redeveloping the site of the Greyhound bus station on the corner of West Brambleton and Monticello Avenues to establish a hospitality and restaurant management school, as well as the  culinary arts program. The three entities together will create the 47,000-square-foot, two-story Patricia & Douglas Perry TCC Center for Visual & Culinary Arts and Hospitality Management. Additionally, Glass Wheel Studio on Olney Road will become the newly named TCC Patricia and Douglas Perry Glass Wheel Arts Center @ NEON, home to the glassblowing program, glass-fusing program, ceramics, sculpture and public exhibition space. Planned for completion in 2021.

Assembly
400 Granby Street
Assembly is a historic adaptive reuse project, which will restore three buildings to their original beauty while giving them new life as a modern office and community hub, all connected together inside. Assembly is purpose-built to host a curated community of like-minded professionals, leading creative and technology companies, aspiring startups, and talented freelancers all sharing energy, inspiration, and resources. The towering ceilings, massive windows, and original architectural details will all be rediscovered in the construction process. The project will be completed in two phases: first, the Ames & Brownley building (50,000 sf) on Granby Street, including a rooftop penthouse, central atrium, and iconic marquis. In phase two, the Sears buildings (53,000 sf) along Freemason Street and Monticello Avenue will be completed. Planned for fall 2021.
