Virginia Beach Pembroke Mall owner reveals plans for 12-story apartment building and 14-story hotel – The Virginian-Pilot
Fifty-six years ago, Pembroke Mall became Hampton Roads’ first enclosed mall.
Today, the aging center takes on a new look and a new purpose.
Mall owner Pembroke Square Associates is teaming up with Charlottesville-based Castle Development Partners to open a 12-story apartment complex above the former Stein Mart in March 2023. The project will include 322 one-, two- and three-bedroom units ranging from 550 square feet to 1,800 square feet.
Ramsay Smith, president of Pembroke Realty Group, said in a press release that the community has an abundance of amenities, including a saltwater infinity pool; fitness center with yoga studio; club room and entertainment center; rooftop terrace with residential dining area; and a coworking space on each floor. Retail and parking will be provided on the ground floor.
Andy McGinty, Director of Castle Development Partners, said they were delighted to offer state-of-the-art multi-family living at the heart of the future lifestyle hub.
“Our living space will truly allow residents to live, work, dine, shop and play in the heart of all that Pembroke has to offer,” McGinty said in the release.
Pembroke Square Associates said it is also partnering with Virginia Beach-based Landmark Hotel Group to build a 14-story hotel on the site of the former SunTrust bank at the entrance to the Virginia Beach Boulevard mall.
Tempo/Homewood Suites by Hilton, the first dual-brand hotel in Hampton Roads, will feature a fitness center, outdoor patio, rooftop tapas-style restaurant, lounge, indoor and outdoor meeting spaces and parking, the partners said.
The apartments and the hotel are both expected to open in spring 2025.
