Among the 15 restaurants listed are several that are making their Virginia debuts, including Bensi’s Ristorante Italiano, Huey’s Diner, Kenji Fusion and (coach) Frank Beamer’s American Grill.

“This is the right project, in the right location, at the right time,” said Hampton Mayor Molly Ward. “Our community asked for an upscale, energy-filled mixed-use project. We are getting a good first look at that quality today with the announcement of these great and exciting retail, restaurant and entertainment tenants.”

  1. And the private bonds for the buildings just got defaulted on, let us hope those 93.2 million in bonds issued on the cities behalf to buy, build the streets, sidewalks, parking deck, those 3 faux token parks do not get defaulted on. Yes, this is a TIF build, city had to buy, build the infrastructure to get the old mall owners to built the new buildings. Yes Hampton owns much of the PTC, just subtract out the buildings, lovely isn’t it, city taxes are paying off that 93.2 million and they had to create a 0.05% shoppers fee to help out. Gee, take your age, add 30 years, this is when the city will pay off its debt, wonder what those buildings will look like.
