Aqua on 25th Street embodies the new generation of multi-family housing. Located centrally along the Virginia Beach Resort, just one block off the beach, residents have access to a posh courtyard with resort-style pool, a rooftop lounge with wraparound ocean views, and a fitness center.
Overlooking Pacific Avenue and connected with a lower fitness area, the fifth-floor green roof terrace showcases grilling stations, outdoor bar, sunbathing, large screen TV, and fireplaces for year round use by residents and guests. Unique backlit seat walls create raised planting beds doubling to mitigate stormwater. Material selection is critical for the roof deck for loading requirements, heat island effect, and fire proofing.
Aqua has been heralded by Virginia Beach staff for its innovation and compliance with regulations. It is also the winner of the 2016 ULI Award for Best Public Private Partnership.
