NAS Oceana Future Base Design


Naval Air Station Oceana Future Base Design Options and Opportunities:

Future Base Design (FBD) is an innovative installation and efficiency modernization initiative that encompasses several different lines of effort, all of which share the strategic goal of increasing installation resiliency and effectiveness that directly align and support warfighter readiness and mission priorities. To do so, Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana is challenging the assumptions, concepts, and methods of shore support services traditionally offered at NAS Oceana with the intention of establishing a mission model responsive to the U.S. Navy’s place in the 21st Century.

FBD is an innovative model that has the opportunity to change the landscape around NAS Oceana while generating critical resources for improving infrastructure. FBD is a transformational and comprehensive approach to Navy installation management that is designed to transform, optimize, and modernize installation capabilities and resiliency, while also reducing the total ownership cost and footprint of NAS Oceana infrastructure.

NAS Oceana has identified a number of real property parcels, which are considered underutilized non-excess real estate, possessing the qualities and potential for the highest economic value to enter into a public-private partnership (P3) through a competitive out lease or other real property out grant action.  In return, NAS Oceana will receive “in kind” services of equivalent value from the lessee that will be directed toward modernizing installation capabilities, enhance resiliency, and reduce total ownership costs and footprint.

The parcels are primarily comprised of undeveloped land. Utility infrastructure varies depending on the location of the parcel. When evaluated as undeveloped commercial and industrial land, each parcel has the potential to enter into a long-term out grant agreement.

-  Oceana Boulevard Agricultural Fields – details will be released in the near future
-  East & West Commissary Parcels – details will be released in the near future

Future Base Design directly supports the FY2020-2022 DON Strategic Objective 1.2.C, by:
  • Defining mission services and support services
  • Directing resources at mission services enabling naval power generation
  • Leveraging competitive out-lease agreements for underutilized government land to obtain in-kind considerations in order to augment installation maintenance and improvement projects
  • Utilizing public/public, public/private (P4) opportunities to realign the delivery of support services
  • Supporting a strategic collaboration with Dominion Energy to enhance NAS Oceana energy resilience and reliability, including support of the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project
  • Maximizing the use of inter-governmental support agreements (IGSAs) with public entities for infrastructure maintenance and support, NAS Oceana FBD will:

Industry Day AICUZ Summary - Competitive Lease Process
Industry Day AICUZ Summary

PROPERTY/LOCATION: The proposed property is a combination of improved and unimproved area totaling approximately 113 acres. The available property is located at NAS Oceana - 873 Oceana Boulevard, within the City of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
CURRENT USE: The Property is currently vacant and is no longer being used as of 2019.
VISION: The vision of this opportunity is for the Property to be out granted for a financially viable use that is compatible with the security and operational requirements of NAS Oceana.
The Property is located within the AICUZ and APZ, which limit the height, structure type, and occupancy (density of workers). This site could be suitable for up to 1,000,000 SF (100± buildable acres at 10,000 SF of building per acre). The entire Property is located within Aircraft Noise Zone >75 dB, and the majority of the Property is within the APZ-1 Crash Zone where the uses recommended by the Navy as “Conditionally Compatible” are Wholesale and Manufacturing and the only uses considered “Compatible” are Agriculture and Public Rights-of-way. Due to the continued industrial-type development in the APZ-1 areas and the relatively high demand for industrial property, it is reasonable to conclude that NAS Oceana would approve light industrial/wholesale and manufacturing uses, as well as a potential data center or energy battery storage farm, for the Property.
The City of Virginia Beach Public Utilities does not have any water and sewer infrastructure along Oceana Blvd between Harpers Road and Bells Road. Further development within the Property will require additional water and sewer infrastructure.
The electrical infrastructure within the Property belongs to Dominion Energy.
