Oh thank god! I don't know how many of you people live in VB, but I live In a neighborhood right behind the oceanfront area. I go to the beach everyday practically in the summer, and the middle part of the oceanfront area is really run down. It really needs this, because that dome's nickname is the "ghetto amusement park." However, I don't think it will take up that little of space, so by the way they were describing it, it will take up most of the area in the middle streets of the oceanfront. Like I said before it really is run down, By the way they were describing it, I think it will be something like a mall. Yay! VB's third mall in the whole city. I think it could be a good investment though.:)

Really? first off, VDOT needs to do some serious repairs to how they operate and who they are teaming up with and how much they are paying for the roads... you know we've had a state budget surplus the past two years... and it's all gone to vdot. The problem isn't that the money isnt there... the problem is Vdot.


Virginia needs more. The beach area has tons of potential... Reminds me constantly of a run down vegas. A sports team and this entertainment complex could be the beginning of something great for the area.

This +1000000000

VDOT is run by such an incompetent group of morons. Potholes everywhere and not knowing how to fix them, closing down TWO major bridges linking the Peninsula and Southside on a busy weekend snarling traffic for miles, engineering mistakes on I-64....I could go on and on but I'll leave it at that.

Yea I have to drive on 264 in Virginia Beach practically everyday, and that interstate's pothole repairs are so bad. it is like running over speed bumps every second. And they were supposed to pave it last year, but instead the Chesapeake section of 64 got repaved which only had a pothole repair every mile. Now since it looks like they aren't going to be paving 264 for a while, they started making more useless repairs, just so we can have more speed bumps.

The money is allotted to do the repairs. They simply have not made it to them yet. There doing whole section ctutouts and pouring cement, not asphalt. Should be done by summers end. And as far as the tunnel and bridge fiasco last October, the man in charge of that decision resigned 2 weeks ago.

I'm not saying the interstates need repair before the complex (though, they really do, third tunnel FTW), I'm just saying that the taxpayers of Virginia Beach voted down a 1% gas tax hike to pay for local road repairs. Do we really need a complex in one of the worst neighborhoods in Virginia Beach? Especially with the failed promises of the Va Beach Amphitheater and Sports Plex?

It's slated for across from the convention center? That's right off of birdneck... I used to commute through there for a job, not something I enjoyed doing at night.

There's going to be a huge parking garage built so parking will only SUCK for about 2 years then it'll all be better. Better than before! I hope this ends up resembling something like broadway at the beach in myrtle beach. I don't want it to be an upscale waterside or something.

That's not it. Let's just say Virginia Beach actually beats the odds and this thing is successful, it would make the Oceanfront much worse than it is during the summer. I'm not sure if that lot lands in the official crash zone of Oceana, but I can't imagine them too happy with more expensive crap in the area either. If it's not successful, there are only so many minor league teams that need someplace to train during the off season. I really think the city is better off attempting to fix what it has already, that's what it comes down to behind my reasoning.

Hold on, do you think this is the arena? Minor league teams wouldn't play in an entertainment complex...
And I don't think it's in the crash zone. They didn't contest it at all and they are contesting the new developement in Chesapeake that was going to be in the crash zone so I know they'd contest this.
