Portsmouth Looks to Fill Empty Spaces Downtown
Inside Business Economic Development
By Briana Adhikusuma
With empty storefronts mixed in among businesses along High Street in downtown Portsmouth, the city is looking ahead to fill those vacant spaces.
A big loss on the horizon is the three-story, 33,000-square-foot Tidewater Community College Visual Arts Center on High Street. The college plans to move the center out of Portsmouth into the Glass Wheel Studio and a redeveloped Greyhound bus station site in Norfolk.
