Liberty Place project under way in downtown Fredericksburg
Preliminary construction work has begun on the Liberty Place development in downtown Fredericksburg.
Wack General Contractor this week began preparing the site, including erecting fencing needed for the work and taking out old concrete and pavement. Construction is expected to last until late May on the roughly 43,000-square-foot, three-level building bordered by Douglas, William and Winchester streets. The project includes ground-level retail/restaurant space and two floors of office space. Tenants include Blue Cow Ice Cream, Burger Bach, Cary Street Partners, Mellow Mushroom, Pasta Fresca Cafe and Atlantic Union Bank (lending office).
The Liberty Place construction project will have some impacts on adjacent streets, sidewalks and landscaping. The sidewalks adjacent to the project along Douglas, William and Winchester streets will be closed during some of the work, and there may also be temporary closures to Douglas Street at a later time. Existing street trees will be removed for the construction work, but they will be replaced with attractive landscaping. Brick sidewalks, colonial-style lights and other public improvements are also planned as part of the project. Here is a look at a rendering:
