757 WHQ was a hacker space / ISP. Mainly funded by Tele Monster, it lasted a number of years. Featured a large number of computer systems and other toys. Costs got too high, and I let it go.

Notable projects include the Internet Skillcrane, which was featured on HackADay and was seen at Shmoocon.

Crazy computers at the space included a Cray J932SE, a SGI Origin 2000 16 proc, AS/400, and lots of midrange systems.

There is an official replacement hackerspace located in downtown Norfolk. Please see the 757 Labs entry on hackerspaces.org, or www.757labs.org. Some of the same people are involved.
