Project of the Moment

Project: iFly Indoor Skydiving

Virginia Beach, Virginia

Client: Breeden Companies
Virginia Beach, Virginia

Completed: Construction Started 2013

iFly Virginia Beach will be a year-round indoor entertainment facility located on Pacific Avenue at 25th Street. Using a PPEA Agreement, the City of VB is selling a surface parking lot to Breeden to construct iFly Indoor Skydiving, 147 apartments and a 598 space 5 1/2 story parking garage, which the city will buy back after construction. iFly is an exciting entertainment venue that will serve locals, tourists, military training and skydiving team training. It consists of a 14' diameter vertical wind tunnel with fans in the ceiling. The fans generate sufficient wind speed providing the sense of free falling. The wind is recirculated, air conditioned and heated for year-round comfort.

The apartments will front 25th Street and Arctic Avenue with pervious pavers and subsurface stormwater storage in structural fill. Structural fill allows root growth without disturbing pavers and provides adequate voids for stormwater management. Of the 598 parking spaces, 377 will be open to the general public, the balance being reserved for apartment residents.
