Creating An Urban Destination in Chesapeake - Virginia Business

What was once a 10-year vision is now a reality. Summit Pointe has emerged in Chesapeake’s Central Business District, the largest in the Hampton Roads region, as Coastal Virginia’s newest metropolitan center. A $330 million investment is transforming the Central Business District into a walkable hub with world-class offices, distinctive urban residences, unique retailers, fine dining restaurants and a local brewery.

Summit Pointe has already become a premier business location with 69 acres strategically located in the center of the region. More than 3,600 businesses and 35,000 employees are located within a three-mile radius. And Dollar Tree’s 510,000-square-foot high-rise office tower is the anchor. Recently ranked 111 on the Fortune 500 list, Dollar Tree, Inc (NASDAQ: DLTR), has more than 2,000 employees at Summit Pointe, while also hosting international business associates to its Store Support Center daily.

Subhead: Work and Thrive.

While Summit Pointe currently has two signature office buildings comprising 660,000 square feet, the urban plan envisions more than one million square feet of office space, up to 500,000 square feet of retail space, approximately 250,000 square feet of hospitality and conference space and 1,400-plus residences.
