Developed by Robinson Development Group, Harbor Heights was started in 2005, but plans date to 2003,

Norma and Tom Moss , Norfolk’s city treasurer, moved into their 10th-floor unit last month after deciding to
downsize from a two-story downtown condominium they owned for two years.
“We saw it from our old home and watched them go up,” said Norma , who can now watch the sunset over the
water from the balcony of her two-bedroom, 2½-bath Wells model.
Scott and Kallie Rose, both Navy pilots, and their dog, Gucci, moved into a Harbor Heights loft six months ago.
“We wanted to live downtown, and this is the perfect fit,” Kallie said. “We’re a young, married couple with no kids,
so we wanted something fun and different. We found that in the loft.”
The modern, contemporary look of the loft, combined with awesome views and the downstairs market – which
Kallie calls her “pantry” – make Harbor Heights the ideal place for the Roses and many other urbanites.
