“The Cordish Companies share the city’s vision of a vibrant, waterfront complex that will be a premier regional dining and entertainment destination. We are pleased to welcome Cordish as they begin construction on Waterside District, which will create hundreds of new jobs, bring more energy downtown, and generate millions of dollars of revenue for the city.”

– Former Mayor Paul D. Fraim

“When we decided to open our third location, we knew it had to be at Waterside District. Dave and I grew up here and to have Cogan’s Pizza be a part of the revitalization of the historic Waterside building is very special for us.”

“I couldn’t be more excited to bring my new concept to Waterside District. I have visited many of the world-class projects Cordish has developed around the country, and their plans for Waterside District are truly incredible. BBQ has been a lifelong passion of mine and it is awesome to be able to bring our killer smokehouse concept to Norfolk, becoming a part of the culinary tradition of the Hampton Roads region.”

– Guy Fieri, Celebrity Chef

“We are very excited to bring The Fudgery back to Norfolk at Waterside District. Waterside and Norfolk have incredible importance to us as it was our first location after originally opening our doors on the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We are most happy to return to Norfolk under The Cordish Companies’ stewardship of Waterside District.”

– A.C. Marshall, Founder and CEO of The Fudgery

“Can’t say thank you enough for your presentation to our entire athletic department. Great job! What an asset the Waterside District will be for our city and region. I know our coaches and staff are excited to experience the various offerings of Waterside as this area will truly assist us in recruiting and fan following. Again, I know you had a million places you could and probably should have been this AM and we appreciate you spending your time with us. Thank you and best of luck with your opening. I can’t wait to enjoy the new Waterside soon!”
