NORFOLK -- Central Radio has been in the Navy electronics business for more than 50 years.

Now, it's fighting to keep its location on 39th Street as the Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority threatens to take it under eminent domain.

Land in that area, a public-private partnership called "The District," will become a new dormitory for 900 Old Dominion University students.

The master plan developed in the late 1990s was all about acquiring property near the Central Hampton Blvd. District.

Central Radio has fought to stay put.

The matter is pending before Norfolk Circuit Court.

Meantime, NRHA has it will continue to search for a new home for Central Radio and work to reach a purchase price.
