PilotOnline reports that construction has begun on a huge Navy housing project for single sailors.
The roughly $336 million project will provide 2,366 new beds in a combination of “manor-style” residences and midrise apartment buildings with clubhouses and other amenities, Hampton Roads PPV LLC said in a news release. In Norfolk, the units will be located at Camp Allen, adjacent to Interstate 64 near Willoughby, and Camp Elmore, off Terminal Boulevard. Housing also will be build on a 5-acre parcel in Newport News near the Northrop Grumman shipyard.
Our hopes are that this project may spur new private development dollars to be spent in the revitalization of the Wards Corner Business District.
