Virginia Beach Town Center has 5 new tenants, including Nando’s, Legal Sea Foods and Cinnaholic

VIRGINIA BEACH — The storefronts in Virginia Beach’s Town Center have several new occupants and more on the way.

On Tuesday, Armada Hoffler Properties announced five new tenants soon to occupy the mixed-use center, but a spokesperson wasn’t able to provide opening dates or addresses.

They are:

• Legal Sea Foods, a Boston-based restaurant and oyster bar chain, will offer casual dining in an 8,000-square-foot site. While there is a location in Arlington at Reagan National Airport, this will mark the first for Hampton Roads.

 Nando’s, a South African fast food chain that specializes in flame-grilled chicken with peri-peri pepper and sauce flavors, has leased a 3,000-square-foot space. Nando’s has multiple locations in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C.

• Madewell, known for its jeans, will open a 3,000-square-foot store at 4525 Main St., according to the Town Center directory. The women’s and men’s clothing store, which has a location in Richmond, also features T-shirts, handbags, jewelry and shoes.

• Cinnaholic Bakery features 100% vegan plant-based and dairy-free handcrafted gourmet cinnamon rolls and desserts. It will occupy a 1,500-square-foot shop at 209 Central Park Ave., according to the Town Center online directory.

• Bath & Body Works, the body care and home fragrance store, will open in a 2,000-square-foot spot. The retailer has 11 other locations in Hampton Roads.

These retailers will join the center’s four recent additions: NikeThree-Notch’d Brewing, Drybar, and Benny’s pizza shop.

Town Center of Virginia Beach encompasses 545,000 square feet of retail space, which is now 97% leased, according to developer Armada Hoffler.

Armada Hoffler President and CEO Louis Haddad said in a news release that the company used Hampton Roads’ coastal appeal and business community to attract a new generation of retailers. The company has focused on bringing brands that have yet not invested in the city or Hampton Roads.

“We continue to prove that mixed-use developments, which constitute a large portion of our portfolio, have shown sustained growth coming out of the last several recessions, and tenants recognize this advantage,” Haddad said.
