Military Circle redevelopment status update meeting delayed due to COVID
NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) – Norfolk City Manager Chip Filer has said the process for the Military Circle Mall redevelopment project has been delayed thanks to COVID-19.
Filer said on Tuesday that any update on the status of the redevelopment project will be further delayed due to COVID-19. A closed-door council workshop with the three developers has been suspended.
Like 10 On Your Side reported last year, city officials have three proposals from three different companies detailing how best to rebuild the 75-acre mall.
The plans include possible arenas, green spaces and residential properties. The submissions are from companies supported by musician Pharrell Williams, NFL Hall of Fame Emmitt Smith and local developer Bruce Thompson.
Two of those teams, Smith and local builder SB Ballard and the other backed by Williams and entertainment company Live Nation, include designs for arenas with more than 15,000 seats.
Thompson’s proposal, The Well, includes an 8,000-seat performing arts amphitheater.
We’ll keep you posted on the timeline.
