The Village at the Cavalier on the Hill project is underway! WPL Site Design has been an active participant of the design team and actively involved in the Master Planning efforts for this historic property on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. The primary goal from the onset has been to emphasize, honor, and showcase the historical significance of the Cavalier Hotel. In keeping with that theme, future on site developments will provide an upscale, high end retreat environment, along with living accommodations that will be unmatched in the region.
As anticipated, the popularity and nostalgia of the site and its’ architectural gem have provided many unique challenges influencing the final master plan design. Community input, historic registration implications, and a variety of site constraints are just a few of the challenges that have required attention. Thus, WPL has worked diligently with numerous individuals and organizations to acknowledge their concerns during this process. In addition, the master plan has been developed with an emphasis on utilizing and incorporating existing on-site features including topographical changes and established vegetation.
Currently, the design team is working though the conditional rezoning process with the City of Virginia Beach. Once completed, further steps will be able to be taken to incorporate this unique and exciting development into the Virginia Beach Oceanfront fabric.
