Demolition work is under way at a former hotel and restaurant property in front of the Spotsylvania Towne Centre.

Buildings that formerly housed a hotel and restaurant in front of the Spotsylvania Towne Centre off State Route 3 are being demolished, and the land will eventually be redeveloped.

One of the Fredericksburg properties being demolished formerly held a Ramada Inn and America’s Best Value Inn. Another used to be home to Aunt Sarah’s Pancake House and the Tree House Lounge. There is also a house being taken down.

The demolition work should be finished by the end of the month, said Joe Bell, spokesman for the Cafaro Cos., which owns the Spotsylvania Towne Centre and the properties being demolished. Grass will then be planted, and the access road that cuts through to The Village at Spotsylvania Towne Centre will reopen.

Cafaro will look to redevelop the property with commercial uses, Bell said, but there are no specific plans yet. He said the company is open to suggestions for how to best use the property.
