Pharrell Williams partners with Wave VB and Wavegarden Cove on a new project

Pharrell Williams, the Wave VB, & Venture Realty Group have proposed a unique new project that would transform Virginia Beach into an exciting year-round Surf destination.

“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.

The Wave VB project program is designed to be a family-friendly and actively lifestyle destination. The plans currently consist of:

A 2-acre Wavegarden Cove

  • Up to 1000 waves per hour
