NORFOLK | Harbor's Edge | 300ft+ | 27 fl | Pro

Skyscraper latest project planned for Fort Norfolk

NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- Big changes are in the works for Norfolk's skyline.

The Harbor's Edge tower is a planned expansion off the retirement community on Colley Avenue in Fort Norfolk.

Concept drawings of the sleek, mixed residential building were first published in The Journal of the American Institute of Architects last week.

Carl Ede, project designer at the Dallas-based Three Living Architecture, said the development aims to subtly integrate the existing senior community with a more modern flair.

"We want to ensure that seniors in the original building are not isolated," Ede told ArchitectMagazine.com. "We also designed new third-floor common areas which connect the two structures with multi-purpose space, a theatre and dining and bar venues. In the end, it's all about bringing together both phases to form a brand-new community."

Mayor Paul Fraim announced the $100 million project, which would have 118 units, earlier this year during his State of the City address.

The tower would mark a significant step forward in the city's strategy to revitalize Fort Norfolk's waterfront, which has remained largely underdeveloped.

Rohn Sitjar owns the neighborhood's only public restaurant, 757 Crave, which is swallowed up by the tower's sprawling foundation in the renderings.

He's excited about the project and is willing to relocate his business if it comes to it.

"I think that rising tides lift all ships and I think that it's going to be good for everyone in this area and business," Sitjar said.

Harbor's Edge is slated to be 27 floors high and if completed, would top the city's tallest tower, the Bank of Hampton Roads building, by just one floor.
