​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Virginia Beach Development​ Authority

T​he City of Virginia Beach Development Authority facilitates the expansion of the tax base through increased business investment.
The success of this mission is dependent upon regional cooperation with respect to:

  • Infrastructure
  • Utilities
  • Education
  • Legislative Issues
  • Positive local, regional, national and international identity of Virginia Beach as a location for business
  • Public/private p​artnerships

This mission is carried out with an emphasis on:​​

  • Vision

  • Creative, innovative leadership​

  • Participation in local and regional issues

  • Quality development and growth

Over 50% of the office and industrial land developed in the City is directly attributable to the City of Virginia Beach Development Authority’s extraordinary efforts. Municipally-owned sites​, from 3.5 acres to 125 acres, are ready for development. In addition, land at very competitive prices can be made available to new business and existing industry.​

The Authority was established by the Virginia General Assembly in 1964 as a component, ​but legally separate unit, of the City of Virginia Beach. ​
