RE: ODU Master Plan
Drove by campus today, saw that they are putting up a new Health Sciences building up S. of the Ted. I don't remember reading about this. I thought the new ODU Police Station was going there.

Not sure where the police station is going to be. All we know is somewhere on the east side of Hampton Boulevard. We also know they have requested money for land acquisition, so wherever it is, it isn’t a current ODU property.

The new health sciences building was announced when they announced the expansion of the programs available at the VB campus here;

Here is the construction page for it, that shows one additional rendering;

I like it. Only thing Id recommend is adding some nice (and consistent looking) signage to label it as ODU. Thats a "gateway" piece of property on a major road. Brand it! Look at VCU, they don't put up a building without plastering VCU all over it. ODU needs to do the same. Especially for buildings facing Hampton Blvd.

I thought this building was being constructed across from Raisin Canes towards Killam Ave? Has this changed?

It appears from the rendering that you are correct, it is off Killam by Monarch Way. It looks like the girl with the backpack is in front of Raising Canes. But they also have a car driving down the left side of the street, so accuracy may not be important.

I can see how that is likely the location. If so, will something go between the short edge glass section and Hampton Blvd? Another building? A park? If nothing, then I wonder why they didnt push it up closer to Hampton blvd to save space. Regardless, if you can see that edge from the road it still needs some signage. These are the showpiece buildings to everyone driving between the base and the hospital.

That’s correct. It’s going up in the open lot across the street from Raising Canes.

If I were a betting man I'd wager good money that they're going to be extending Monarch way out in that direction, and that another building will eventually occupy the space between Monarch Way and Hampton Blvd

I was actually thinking they might close blocks like 40th Street to make it more pedestrian friendly, especially with housing on the other side. Then they could avoid having to build another on of those wonky pedestrian bridges like at The Next.

That could be very possible too, depends on what they're aiming for. I'm not sure how well it'd fit, seeing how it'd be like a mini campus be wedged between more urban uses, but I'm also not an architect so I dunno.

I also wonder what the lifespan of The Next is going to be. They used to be tied to the University pretty close, until the floor collapsed in one of the apartments during a party. I could see them being swallowed up by the University within 20 years.

It's next to the new Starbucks, which is at the former VIP entrance on 43rd (near will call).

The Starbucks is where the gear shop used to be I think.

Correct. It was a VIP entrance the last five years or so.

This seems like such an odd fit for The Ted. The Starbucks was a bit of a stretch but it kind of works. I wonder if this will be going in the old campus tour office that was in the will call lobby.
