Demo work starting for Eagle Village hotel

A sign on the space that will be knocked down to allow for the new hotel.

Demolition is beginning today for the Hyatt Place hotel at Eagle Village in Fredericksburg.

The University of Mary Washington Foundation, which is building the 93-room hotel, recently received a demolition permit from the city. The vacant retail space between Eagle Village Drive and the Giant food store will be taken down for the project. The Giant store itself won’t be affected.

UMW officials say it will take about a week to remove interior fixtures and physically separate the part to be demolished from the rest of the building. The major demolition work will last about two weeks, followed by a week of cleanup.

Groundbreaking and construction will then proceed. The hotel is expected to open in the fall of 2013.
