ONCE AGAIN, it's time for
Some area projects are on course.
Some projects, like Kalahari Resorts' plans for a $260 million water-park resort and convention center,
Some, like the National Slavery Museum, have fallen off the radar completely and aren't even on the list this year.
Others, like the new Spotsylvania hospital, go in the Mission Accomplished file and aren't on the list. Even as we climb out from the worst economic collapse since the Great Depression, it's heartening to see so many projects in the works. Here's hoping they all get completed.
The story so far: Last April, the Silver Cos. and Georgia-based The Columns Group announced that they would be developing Amelia Square on the crumbling former Fredericksburg Hardware Store property in downtown Fredericksburg. Plans called for 19 high-end, 4,000-square-foot townhouses and a commercial building.
Outlook: Little has happened since then on the deteriorating property. The developers have been pitching the units, which start at $769,000 and go up to $1.35 million, but it has been a tough sell amid a shaky economy. Silver officials say they continue to refine plans for the project.
CARMEL CHURCH STATION
The story so far: Last year the Caroline County Board of Supervisors approved a rezoning for the mixed-used Carmel Church Station project. The development plan includes a train station and other multi-modal facilities on nearly 1,100 acres between U.S. 1 and Interstate 95 near the Flying J truck stop. There is space for a future train station on 3 acres along the CSX rail line, and a pedestrian-oriented center with residential and commercial development. Plans also call for a school, library and regional park along the North Anna River.
