VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) - Virginia Beach has approved a one-year extension for a Fairfax company to come to terms with the city to develop an entertainment complex near the oceanfront.

Virginia Beach approved the extension for the Peterson Companies on Tuesday. The city has been trying to develop a nearly 10-acre site that formerly housed an entertainment complex called the Dome since 1994. The city says the new 230,000-square-foot entertainment complex will be called VA ViBe!

City officials say the new complex is envisioned as a mixed-use development that could include a luxury movie theater, upscale bowling, live music and an exhibition hall. Plans call for restaurants on site that could include a craft brewery, a wine tasting room and fine dining. Retail will also be a component.
