The City’s Waterfront Plan envision a new public plaza at the foot of King Street encompassing the City owned properties of 1 & 2 King Street, and the existing King Street Park, totaling about one acre. With the Old Dominion Boat Club at Prince Street, the City will open an “interim” public space to enjoy until construction begins on the permanent park. Demolition of the former Old Dominion Boat Club occurred in the winter of 2018 and construction is anticipated to be completed in late fall 2018.
