Work Program Architects has invested two years with the City of Norfolk to decide best ways to approach the redevelopment of the St. Paul’s area, adjacent to Downtown. After listening to residents through many working sessions, WPA and Ray Gindroz have developed and illustrated the following principles for the future development of the St. Paul’s area:
In July 2018, WPA participated in a community-wide charrette for the Choice Neighborhoods Initiative HUD Grant with the City of Norfolk, NRHA, The Communities Group, and the lead architect and planner, Torti Gallas + Partners. Together, we worked to advance a plan that creates a framework for new development that meets the needs of the community.
In May of 2019 , WPA organized a follow up charrette that advanced the CNI design and focused on connections to the larger St. Paul’s area, Downtown, and beyond.
