NORFOLK, Va. – The construction of a $126 million Hilton hotel and convention center in downtown Norfolk will begin in January.
The 23-story complex will have 300 upscale rooms and 50,000 square feet of conference space. Grand Central Station in New York City will inspire the design.
“The reason we moved so quickly is because the cooperation from the city of Norfolk staff has been unparalleled in my experience,” said developer Bruce Thompson. “We are going to be respectful to the seaport town, but bring forward a design that is contemporary and different from anything in the region.”
The hotel is projected to be as tall as Norfolk’s Dominion Tower and will house three to four restaurants.
