Ghent Station breaks ground in Norfolk
Robinson Development, Stanton Partners and Norfolk city officials were among 150 people Monday who turned out for a groundbreaking ceremony for Ghent Station, a $15.5 million development with two primary tenants: Bon Secours and Fresh Market.
Norfolk’s first and only Fresh Market store will be located in the new center at 21st Street and Colley Avenue along with a multi-use Bon Secours medical facility.
The developers have completed demolition of an existing structure and started construction on the 22,500-square foot grocery store, which plans to open by Thanksgiving. Fresh Market, based out of Greensboro, N.C., and has 12 other stores in Virginia, including in the Richmond, Northern Virginia and Hampton Roads markets.
The Bon Secours facility will offer many medical services, including In Motion, for physical therapy and sports medicine, urgent care, occupational health, a surgical weight loss center / metabolic center, and diagnostic imaging in a two-story building of about 26,400 square feet.
Ghent Station, located on 3.5 acres, is the former site of the Norfolk Senior Center.
