Spending Money on Norfolk’s Futurecity of Norfolk Will Buy 7 More Denby Park Buildings

The City Council decided Tuesday night to buy seven more apartment buildings in the Denby Park area at a cost of $1.5 million.

The properties are on East Little Creek Road and Fort Worth Avenue, the latest purchases in the city”s efforts to buy and demolish troubled apartment buildings.

The mood at a recent City Council meeting was celebratory, although Councilman Andy Protogyrou cautioned that this was just one of many steps needed to redevelop the area.
