Colley Avenue Concept

Currently, in its conceptual phase, this mixed-use commercial, multifamily, and parking garage project is being considered for Norfolk's Colley Avenue corridor.  The city's Central Hampton Boulevard Area Plan guided our design, requiring a 50/50 mix of commercial and residential space, plus off-street parking requirements.  

Our thoughts for the project feature a two-story restaurant or brewery anchoring the corner, with a large attention-grabbing graphic visible through the full-height storefront glazing.  Off-campus housing units for Old Dominion University students, and a parking garage accessible from 41st complete the space plan.

A combination of chromatic green panels, light shelves, stucco, and undulating steel bars flanking the parking garage entry provide a striking contrast to the tired properties lining the street.
