JBI provided full design service to Cordish for the development of Waterside District from concept to completion. Norfolk’s rich nautical and industrial history inspired our design of the property. The design team crafted the city’s newest destination using stained concrete, white-washed brick, blackened steel, reclaimed wood and exposed structural elements to evoke the gritty glory of bygone days when shipyards populated the waterfront. There are a wide array of dining options such as Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, the Harbor Club, and Blue Moon Tap House.
“Norfolk, VA may have been founded as a settlement in 1636, but the city has never looked more modern, in large part thanks to the new Waterside District mixed-use development by JBI.”
