WPL Site Design was a very active participant of the Design Team and heavily involved in the Master Planning efforts for this Historic property on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront.  The primary goal from the onset was to emphasize, honor, and showcase the historical significance of the Cavalier Hotel.  The new Site Developments provide an upscale, high-end retreat environment, along with living accommodations that are unmatched in this Region.

As anticipated, the popularity and nostalgia of the Site and its Architectural Gem 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 worked diligently with numerous individuals and organizations to acknowledge their concerns during this process.  The Conceptual Plan presented how the Site could be developed, while still retaining the Historic Hotel and the equally Historic open space and entrance features.  In addition, the Master Plan was developed with an emphasis on utilizing and incorporating existing on-site features including topographical changes and established vegetation.

The Completed Site includes the amazing renovated Cavalier on the Hill destination Hotel with a parking garage, Five-Star restaurant, a Wellness Center including a salt-water indoor pool and a Bourbon Distillery.  On the grounds and surrounding the Hotel is a high quality residential community development, restoration of the surrounding historic grounds, and the restoration of Cavalier Park which adjoins the Cavalier Shores neighborhood to the north.
