Tidewater Community College Master Plan, Norfolk, VA
Urban Design Associates (UDA) developed the master plan and design for the new Tidewater Community College. The new campus is an element of a comprehensive strategy to revitalize Downtown Norfolk, Virginia. The new campus transforms a forgotten corner of downtown into a thriving new neighborhood. The plan makes use of the existing context, combining new construction with the restoration of existing historic buildings. In total, three thousand students are accommodated in a total of four buildings on Granby Street, bringing new life to this once empty traditional shopping district.
The project is ongoing as the campus expands. UDA also provided architectural services for the restoration of the College Library Building and the new Mason Andrews Science Building.
