ODU should ask VCU how they did it.

Simply put, the whole concept of the Tide was not to alleviate traffic or to serve the existing residents. Instead, the concept is a government kickback to developers. The reason the Tide doesn't go anywhere is because there are no opportunities for development and for contributors to make money along that route. I frankly doubt we ever se the Tide serve ODU. Certainly not before 2020.

That's a good read, I'm glad we are taking the time to do proper research. I do agree with the part about building vertically, can you imagine a 17 story dorm.

I think we should build new, and go right to 40,000. That would put us right in line with the upper half of CUSA.

RE: ODU Master Plan
I'm sure the master plan will have an ambitious strategy for the realization of the university's goals going forward. The anticipation is palpable. If they choose to start from scratch and build anew, I wonder if they'll go with an entirely new site or demo & rebuild the current site in phases. If it's a new site, it has to be close to the university (preferably on-campus) so it becomes an ingrained fixture in university life as well as the community.

Anytime I'm feeling down I just read the Pilot comments and it reminds me that at least I don't have it that bad.

Perfect site would be across the street at WHRO/School site....
I hope we go 40K with the foresight to be able to expand to 50-60.

Just move the entire school to the burbs. Plenty of room.

RE: ODU Master Plan
I agree. I believe that the site is okay. I think the best route is to tear down everything except the Ainsilie complex and its parking garage. If we could some how preserve part of the old brick clam-shell into a new stadium, that would be awesome. If that's not possible, perhaps the engineers can design a new stadium with a lot of brick, to keep some of that old time feel sort of like Camden Yards in Baltimore which is one of the best parks in MLB. One of the main problems to solve is going to be the parking and tailgating situation on campus. I trust these engineers will come up with something we can all enjoy and fall in love with, while still hopefully having the foresight to expand into the future.

RE: ODU Master Plan
Ladies and Gentlemen,

What about this scenario. Why not get rid on the golf course along the Elizabeth River and put a 40,000 seat stadium on that site? Boardwalk along the river, complete with dock slips. Norfolk is a water based town. Why not show that off? Foreman field in some form could be held onto as a place where Maury and Granby, plus intramurals and maybe another parking garage. After all they were both original users of Foreman Field. The 40,000 seat complex would be built with the ability to add on as demand dictates. For parking we will need to go to some form of off site parking like schools have that face parking difficulties use. Just a thought.

Would there be any issues with the golf course site since it was built on a landfill?

No clue on that on as I am not an engineer, I just thought that would be a cool site. As a golfer who plays the course on occasion I have found the layout odd to say the least.

RE: ODU Master Plan
I have a problem hooking the ball so most of my shots wind up in the Elizabeth River.... even when I hit the middle of the fairway, the ball is still going right to left and rolls right off the bank. Terrible setup for my game, but I do like the course. It has been several years since I have played it, but it was always in great shape and never too crowded after work. I could literally show up at 6 and walk the entire course in about 45 minutes. Just needed a full bucket of balls!

RE: ODU Master Plan
Parking is really not as bad as yall make it out to be, I have only had trouble 3 times in 4 years. The first time was the Chowan game in year 1. The second time was something going on at the TED with ELMO and the third time was the last game we had this year and that was because of the basketball tournament at the TED and it being W&M. I use the parking garage near Macdonalds on 38th street and its about 30% full two hours before game time. I never have to wait to leave. Its an 8min walk to Foreman. ODU PD told me last game that there was no meter enforcement, I didnt believe him and took my chances between 48th and 49th st and there was a ton of parking there.

I don't think the current situation is the concern. I am concerned about the parking when we add a possible 15k more people though.

RE: ODU Master Plan
Correct. Parking and tailgating areas would be the biggest concern with an expansion IMO. Tailgating over near the Elizabeth River with shuttle bus service would be pretty cool.
