The Wave VB and Wavegarden Cove Coming to Virginia Beach in 2020
Conceptual rendering of The Wave Virginia Beach surf venue being developed by The Venture Realty Group and supported by Pharrell Williams.
The Wave VB & Venture Realty Group has proposed a unique project that would transform the old Dome site in Virginia Beach, VA into an exciting year-round destination for locals and tourists.
“We call this vision of the future “The Wave,” and it embodies the energy, the spirit, the imagination and potential of Virginia Beach and its people,” said Pharrell Williams, a partner in the project.
A homegrown, visionary mixed-use development designed to deliver the excitement and energy of our local experience and capture the heartbeat of the Virginia Beach community.
Tucked between the eclectic neighborhoods of the Resort Beach, the emerging ViBe Creative District, and the bustling oceanfront boardwalk, the plans for the former dome site center around the surf park, an emerging wave technology (A 2 acre Wavegarden Cove) that will make this the East Coast’s most compelling outdoor adventure vacation destination for the whole family to enjoy.
