Infrastructure construction is underway at the 5th-7th Bay St residential project in Norfolk’s  Ocean View area, just one block from beautiful Chesapeake Bay beaches.

The scope of work, performed by Conrad Brothers of Virginia under contract with Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority (NRHA), includes new street construction with a median on 5th Bay St with all utilities, demolition and complete rebuild of 6th Bay St, extensive underground storm water retention system, complete re-grading of the site with extensive fill, tree removal and replacement as well as a brick plaza and 16 foot granite medallion located within the median. 

The 5-7th Bay site is located on a tract of land in East Ocean View between 5th and 7th Bay Streets and E. Ocean View Ave. to Pleasant Ave. The project will include approximately 34 new residences with distinctive coastal architectural detailing and proportions, while utilizing high quality, low maintenance construction materials and finishes. 

Infrastructure construction began in August 2017 and will continue through spring 2018. New home construction will commence upon completion of site work with an anticipated project completion of summer 2019. Sales prices for the new homes are expected to start in the $360,000 range.

Adjacent to the property on 3rd-5th Bay, the Bay Oaks Park is being developed by the City of Norfolk to conserve one of the few remaining tracts of maritime forest in the city.  The 11-acre site features a diverse combination of natural open fields, native undergrowth, and stands of mature, towering trees including the live oaks for which the park is named.  The park, will serve as a natural green space offering passive recreational opportunities, a mile-long trail system shaped as two loops, six picnic shelters with tables, two playgrounds (for children ages 2-5 and 5-12), and exercise stations throughout the park.
