Fredericksburg condo project gets Planning Commission approval

MORE: Read more news from Fredericksburg

Fredericksburg’s Planning Commission recommended approval of the proposed One Hanover downtown condominium project Wednesday night.

The 64,000-square-foot building at the intersection of Hanover and Sophia streets, which is diagonally across from Shiloh Baptist Church (Old Site), needs a number of city approvals before it can proceed.

The proposed five-story, 18-unit riverfront building is 56-feet high. It needs a special-exception permit for being taller than the city’s 50-foot limit and a special-use permit for construction in a flood plain.

The project is expected to be before Fredericksburg City Council on July 9. Council will have the final say on the requested permits.

Mike Adams and Tommy Mitchell are developing One Hanover. They hope to start construction late this fall and have it completed by the end of 2014.
