LeylandAlliance was instrumental in connecting people to the sea at a spectacular site on historic Chesapeake Bay. As a town founder, we worked with public partners that included the City of Norfolk and the highly respected Norfolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority to create East Beach, a traditional seaside neighborhood within one of the country's most livable cities. This 700-unit mixed-use project was designed by world-renowned town planners Duany Plater-Zyberk & Company, and features a Pattern Book prepared by the highly respected firm Urban Design Associates. East Beach realizes a vision for the revitalization of this extraordinary waterfront site that was planned and eagerly anticipated for more than a decade. East Beach has received national recognition for its master plan, architecture, and public beaches.
