WPL provided site analysis and site planning services for the new 17th Street Surf Shop at the corner of 17th street and Pacific Avenue, in the resort area of Virginia Beach. This involved a successful variance process with the Board of Zoning Appeals, as well as successful preliminary site planning with the City Planning Department and the Resort Advisory Commission’s Design Review Subcommittee. WPL’s surveying, civil engineering, and landscape architectural services created a unique look for the new facility, which boasts a hi-tech architectural design. Features include a curved winged roof, split-face masonry block, and bold accent colors.
WPL’s landscape design enhances the facility by portraying a tropical theme with up-lit palm trees, tropical foliage, and blasts of hot annual colors. The design creates a festive setting for one of the oldest surf shops in Virginia Beach.
