Date of Defense 2012-05-02 Availability restricted AbstractThis beachfront high-rise, sited in Virginia Beach, Virginia, is inspired by Le Corbusier’s Unité d’Habitation in
Marseille with floors that switch back to boast views of the Chesapeake Bay and Lynnhaven Inlet. Its large glazed facades are oriented to the west, so residents can enjoy evening sunsets from their living rooms; and to the east, so they can wake up to sunrises from their bedrooms. Its staggered concrete shear walls shield the structure from north winds.
The high-rise is comprised of seven towers; each
containing sixteen condos arranged over twenty-eight stories. The building features retail and resident services on the ground floor, a five-story parking garage, and a rooftop pool, restaurant, and sun deck.
