Every community detail is designed around the characteristics unique to each neighborhood. The team spends months and sometimes years designing the community concept with meticulous attention to detail, from the neighborhood entry to the amenities and common areas & the architectural elements in each home design. Balancing the vision with the goal of satisfying much more than the basic human need for shelter, the team focuses on creating an environment that continues to foster pride of ownership and enduring quality that blends with and preserves the neighborhood’s rich history. It takes knowledge and experience to execute big visions, and the team at the Rotunda Company has perfected the process.


From Preserve on the Elizabeth and River Walk in Chesapeake, Bishops Green & Hidden Cove in Portsmouth, to Marina Bluff on the Peninsula, it’s easy to see the impressive results of the principle partners of Wermers Development’s vision and execution.  Hampton Roads Housing Company is led by Jack Pope – Mr. Pope has overseen the construction of numerous custom and production homebuilding projects throughout the region, including The Heritage Apartments and PierPointe Condominiums in Norfolk, Bellamy Manor in Virginia Beach, and Woodcreek in Newport News.  Through their creativity and vision, flawless attention to and execution of details, and experience and understanding of the development and home building industries, this team has brought communities to Hampton Roads that have a unique sense of place.  The Rotunda is the innovative result of the synergy of these two dynamic teams.
