Norfolk seeks to turn former Greyhound station into mixed-use development in NEON District

Houndstooth will bring hundreds of residential units to Norfolk's NEON District, along with a garage, gym, recreation room and rooftop deck.

Norfolk city officials have unveiled a proposal to build a mixed-use development in the place of the former Greyhound bus station in the NEON District.

With the name "Houndstooth," the development off Brambleton Avenue would include 220 residential units, a parking garage, a gym, a recreation room and a rooftop deck.  Norfolk Mayor Kenny Alexander announced the proposal during his State of the City speech on Friday, saying it would be a $35 million capital investment creating more than 300 construction jobs. 

According to a blog post from the NEON District, Hampton Roads-based developer The Breeden Company and design firm Work Program Architects are spearheading the project. The district hailed Houndstooth as a place "where Downtown’s emerging creative class can live, work, and play."

"In alignment with the goals of the City’s Downtown Norfolk 2030 plan, the project will contribute to coastal resilience and pedestrian connectivity, with public art encouraged to enhance and enrich residents’ lives and bring people together," the NEON District wrote in a blog post.
