The ODU Master Plan (which will contain preliminary plans for the expansion of Foreman Field) will be released in early July. Below is the link.

Thanks for the link. Looking forward to its release date.

I say we need taller buildings, like 20 plus storys, that gives us a smaller foot print with a lot of space

Also light rail and more parking garages, but more tailgate spots.

I highly doubt you are going to see anything twice as tall as BAL.

Parking is the biggest issue and everything has to be solved around that.


RE: ODU Master Plan - Old Dominion Navy - 11-07-2012 05:09 PM

Is there a height restriction on how tall a parking garage can be? With the success of The Tide and VA beach approving of light rail i expect Norfolk to start putting together an extension package that makes stops at ODU on its way to the naval station sooner rather then later.

I hope ODU's board realizes a man just won a contest who doesn't like Engineers, Doctors, Dentists, and Biologists... They make too much money, and college is "over-priced".

They can add light-rail (tax-payer funded, suckers)and maybe Foreman expansion (quick $ return), but if ODU is smart they'll hunker down and weather the rest of this eminent storm.

edit: never mind.

You're obviously frustrated that the crook didn't win, but we are all entitled to our own opinions. FWIW, it's not that school is too expensive, it's that those who provide the funds are making too much off of these kids.

And light rail is a HUGE hit and needs to be expanded throughout Hampton Roads. We should have been doing that in the first place instead of building a bridge to the ghetto (Jordan Bridge).

But again, this is off topic. We've both shared our two cents, now let's get back on topic.

I'm curious what plan ODU comes up with. They have a golden ticket right now, so I hope they don't screw it up.


RE: ODU Master Plan - monarchman - 11-08-2012 10:30 AM

Yes, light rail at ODU would really be a very nice addition to the school. It's something I think the school could sell to prospect students. And may even encourage more students to go car-less.

Here is my master plan, the 3 parking garages would be mixed use. the Stadium would be 50,000 water

Could you make that a bit larger? I can't read the text.

Am I the only one who cannot read this because it is too small?

No. I can't see it either.


RE: ODU Master Plan - AimHigh - 11-08-2012 02:54 PM

I tried to make it larger but it wont allow me to upload anything over 100kb


RE: ODU Master Plan - Monarch_Pride - 11-08-2012 02:58 PM

You can view it larger by holding CTRL and pressing "+" or "-" or CTRL+Scroll wheel

You could try uploading it to imgur.com and then linking us to it.

Thanks, here is the link http://imgur.com/rzEJZ lets all have fun modifying the plan


RE: ODU Master Plan - bigblueodu - 11-08-2012 03:39 PM

I think it has been previously noted that the area by the water consists of sand and fill and wouldn't hold anything more than a golf range.


RE: ODU Master Plan - MONARCHSWIN - 11-08-2012 03:42 PM

There's also a big wastewater treatment plant back there that probably isn't movable...
