Armada Hoffler Tower

Location: Virginia Beach, VA
Armada Hoffler Tower is the defining emblem of The Town Center of Virginia Beach, a phased, $500 million, 14-block mixed-use development that is creating a vibrant downtown for Virginia’s largest city. Just shy of 400 feet, it stands as the tallest building in the region, and the second tallest in the state.

As 252,000 SF, the design/build project beheld a unique challenge in stacking an office building atop a parking garage and rimming the block with small-scale retail space. The nine-floor parking garage was constructed of concrete in order to support the 14 stories of steel-framed office space. The exterior design modernized the skyscrapers of yester-year with elements and materials that reflect the city’s nautical heritage.
