VIR­GINIA BEACH — If din­ing al fresco 23 sto­ries above the beach sounds like your cup of tea, then the Mar­riott Vir­ginia Beach Ocean­front will be the spot.

The ho­tel un­der con­struc­tion on the ocean side of the Cava­lier at 42nd Street will fea­ture a rooftop restau­rant with an out­door, south-fac­ing ter­race. Guests will have a sweep­ing view of the ocean and the re­sort area. In­door seat­ing will in­clude views of the North End and the Cape Henry light­houses. It will open in the spring 2020.

Con­struc­tion work­ers raised the last beam on the roof dur­ing a “top­ping out” cer­e­mony Wed­nes­day.

The ho­tel will have 305 guest rooms and the largest ball­room in Vir­ginia Beach, at nearly 11,000 square feet, ac­cord­ing to Kurt Krause, man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of Gold Key|PHR, the de­vel­op­ment com­pany. Within five years, the prop­erty could en­com­pass 500 guest rooms, four pools with 700 em­ploy­ees, ac­cord­ing to Krause.
