Va. Beach council learns more about Cavalier plan
The City Council learned more Tuesday about the proposed deal to renovate The Cavalier Hotel, including the business partners involved, the city's upfront contribution and the breakdown of what developers would spend on the estimated $259 million project. Council members appeared to mostly embrace the terms of the deal, which calls for $18 million in city money. A public hearing on the project is scheduled for June 25. The council vote is set for July 2. Cavalier Associates LLC, led by hotelier Bruce Thompson, has until July 22 to buy the 22-acre property for $35 million. A Circuit Court judge approved the sale last week to settle a lawsuit among the owners. The group plans to renovate the old Cavalier Hotel and build 100 homes around it. It also wants to fix up the historic structure's sister hotel, located across Atlantic Avenue, and build a new hotel tower next to it.
