The Virginia Beach, Va., City Council is buying property housing The Virginian-Pilot’s local bureau for $5.1 million, and will relocate the 12-person staff in new offices.

Under a deal passed by a 9-2 vote of the council Tuesday night, the city is buying the 1.3-acre property, and will relocate the bureau staff to offices in The Westin Virginia Beach Town Center. The deal includes $300,000 in moving expenses, and totaled about $500,000 more than envisioned when the city began negotiations to buy the property.

The paper stands on a crucial block for the next phase of development of the Town Center. The property will house an office tower and garage.

The Virginian-Pilot?s main office is located in Norfolk.

This story has been changed from the original version to clarify that the Virginian-Pilot is selling property housing a bureau office in Virginia Beach, not its headquarters building in Norfolk.
