Janaf Real Estate in Norfolk Virginia
Janaf is a small neighborhood in Norfolk, with a name that arose from the acronym for Joint Army Navy Air Force. Conveniently located near all the military bases in Norfolk, Janaf was originally developed by a group of retired military personnel who became real estate investors. The neighborhood shares a name with the Janaf Shopping Yard, opened in 1959 as one of the first large suburban shopping centers in the nation. The shopping center covers 80 acres and was built on an old airfield. Residents can easily access over 140 retailers in the shopping center, which is near enough to walk to from many Janaf homes.
