On a stretch of Virginia Beach Blvd. spotted with car dealerships and office/retail strip malls near the Kings Grant neighborhood, this new commercial duplex began construction in late October. Approximately 3,000 square feet, the single-story, two-suite building will house the first Virginia franchise of the wildly popular Duck Donuts. The building features a drive thru for Duck Donuts, large glass storefronts, and a contemporary exterior clad in brick and fiber cement panels. WPA with Homeland Construction are collaborating with GET Solutions , McPherson Design Group and WPL in this exciting design-build project. Construction is expected to be completed in January.
Duck Donuts is located at 3030 Virginia Beach Boulevard, Virginia Beach.
This progressive new education center, reminiscent of a common shed, will inform the public on both organic and sustainable methods of agriculture. Located in the Pungo area of Virginia Beach, VA, it is the result of a partnership between Community Development International and New Earth Farm, with pro bono help from Mark Schmidt and WPA. It features a seed-starting greenhouse, an open-air classroom, a built-in storage shed, a built-in pergola, and a rooftop garden that will grab the attention of passersby on the main road. These features will work together to form a simple and cohesive structure that is both functional and attractive.
