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.

Its not like there aren't empty storefronts in the Village. Does seem odd. Unless its somehow used as a recruiting tool. Like "Look, we have a great arena, practice facility, and you can get a hair cut right here after practice" or something like that?

I'm thinking recruiting tool. Barbershops/Barber's Chairs have become more commonplace in P5 locker rooms/arenas, so I think ODU's trying to stay ahead of the curve on this one. I also don't know if there's a barbershop on campus so this could be good for other students as well.

Just bc there are empty storefronts, doesn’t mean there are storefronts that fit this business. It’s likely this was the best fit for their budget. After all, if you force a bad fit into a lease, it won’t be long before you’re marketing that space again, losing money for both sides.

Well ODU has clearly adopted the hodge podge style of architecture for the campus. From a very attractive Education building to this. IMO it's ugly and dated before it's even built.

Campus looks 1000 times better than it did in the 1990's Students don't know how good they have it these days. The only things that make the ODU of old better than today, was the line of bars across the street. RIP 4400, Friar Tucks, Crazy, Charlies, Mad Mike's, and Batterson's

RE: ODU Master Plan
Where is this building on campus? There are so many new buildings all the campus landmarks I remember are no longer there. Seems like we need to find more land again, it is getting really crowded with buildings on top of buildings and very little green space anymore

It’ll be on the empty lot on 41st and Monarch Way between Canes and The Next apartments.

Kids these days just need to walk an extra two blocks to Colley for the bars. Plenty of good options.

RE: ODU Master Plan
I think it looks fine. It's hard to really gauge the scale of what this looks like, so I think once it's built it'll be a much more impressive looking building, especially the entryway. I'd say the worst looking part is the one facing the Next Apartments, and that side isn't going to be looked at by a ton of folks really (that's the side that faces the plastics company).

I think it looks good too. Can't have an entire side of building be glass, just too expensive. I like the brick look. And there is more wall area than window area probably due to the nature of the use of the building, which I assume is labs and equipment for health sciences.

Is it me, or is this new Health Sciences building the farthest academics building from the main campus? This is exciting as we build out into the once sketchy neighborhoods that existed when i was a student there in the 90s.

And not by much, but it is geographically the closest to EVMS and the hospital. Still hoping for news about EVMS. Had heard JBrod wanted that to be his last big success before leaving.
