VEDA 2013 Fall Conference
October 16-18, 2013
Bringing the Global Economy to Virginia
City Center Walking Tour
Through the vision and guidance of City officials and leaders, and a public/private partnership with over 10 years in the making, what was once a munitions depot has been transformed into the Virginia Peninsula's central business district.
Join us for a walking tour of the offices, shops, restaurants, hotel, conference center, green spaces, apartments, condos and parking garages which surround the five acre Fountain Lake. We'll start with a brief project overview from a premier vantage point and then hit the tree-lined, beautifully landscaped streets with the development team. They'll provide insights on how City Center at Oyster Point came to be, and share insights, challenges, obstacles and lessons learned. Hear the stories from those who were involved in the project since its inception. Learn about mixed-use best practices, and discover how an Enterprise Zone and a Tourism Zone were incorporated into the project.
This is a NO COST optional activity. Sign-up when you register for the Fall Conference.
