VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Despite winning recent approval from City Council, the fight against a controversial 22-floor expansion to an upscale retirement community in Virginia Beach isn’t over.

Multiple condo associations are suing the City of Virginia Beach for City Council’s approval of Westminister-Canterbury on Chesapeake Bay’s plans to build what would be the third-tallest building in the city on the bay.

The $250-million expansion project would add a 22-floor independent living facility and parking garage and a seven-story tall assisted living facility to the community. In total, the project would add 340 units: 217 units in the 22-story building and 123 total units in the seven-story building for assisted living and memory care units.
