Ocean View Elementary School – Norfolk VA

Description

"The original application for a grant from the P.W.A. of $45,900 contemplated an annex to the existing school at an estimated cost of $102,000. Investigation disclosed that the old building was a fire hazard, so the city demolished it and without an additional grant constructed a new building which contains 24 classrooms and an auditorium. The construction is reinforced concrete throughout, the exterior walls being stuccoed. The project was completed in March 1939 at a construction cost of $246,754 and a project cost of $264,059."
